Cleveland Cavaliers Nearing Blockbuster Kyrie Irving Trade With Boston Celtics


The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics are in "aggressive" trade talks involving their star point guards Isaiah Thomas and Kyrie Irving. Irving's fantasy value figures to remain relatively constant in Boston, while Thomas' outlook takes a significant hit playing alongside James in Cleveland.

More details soon to come. Boston would prefer to send Thomas, Ante Zizic, whichever pick, and some players to round out the deal.

The Vertical's Shams Charania wrote Tuesday night that "the teams are still working on the framework of a deal, and Jae Crowder has been involved in the discussions, league sources said".

Cleveland would likely get a first-round pick from Boston as well, though they would likely retain the rights to their Brooklyn pick. With Thomas entering a contract year, the Celtics rumored desire to trade him makes sense. Irving averaged 25.2 points for Cleveland, who lost in the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors. Among his preferred destinations were the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat, and Minnesota Timberwolves.

Flash flooding is also possible, especially where storms stall or move slowly over the same areas for a period of an hour or more. The watch also covers the Finger Lakes, central and northern NY , northern Pennsylvania and part of Vermont.

A trade between the No. 1 and 2 seeds in last year's Eastern Conference playoffs would be peculiar, to say the least. The Boston Celtics drafted Jayson Tatum during the NBA Draft this past summer and signed NBA free agent Gordon Hayward, previously an All-Star player with the Utah Jazz. Thomas has been outspoken about his belief that he is worthy of a massive contract.

The question is, would the two top teams in the East want to do business with each other, potentially helping the other out?
