Thomas, Irving Blockbuster Trade On Hold!

Friday morning, the Cleveland Cavaliers received some bad news about their newly acquired guard Isaiah Thomas.The Cavaliers acquired Thomas, from the Boston Celtics on August 23rd. The Cav’s sent All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to Boston and received point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic, and Brooklyn’s 2018 unprotected first-round pick.

The possibility of A Voided Trade?

Reports late last night indicated that the trade could possibly be void. Sam Amico and ESPN sources have reported that the trade is currently on hold. As of now the Cav’s are weighing their options.

Despite the lack of detail on the severity of the 5’9 guards hip, the Cav’s may request a new deal. As of now, the deal is on hold and Cleveland management is looking to evaluate all possibilities. (Whatever that means)

According to Amico Hoops, the trade has not been finalized. Both teams will be open to reworking a deal because of the damage that has been done.  I.T made it clear that he wanted max dollars and injuring his hip didn’t really help his case.

Uncle Drew made it clear that he wanted to be the man, the guy, the go to option. (I am sure you get it). In addition to the 2018 pick, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge will probably have to add another draft pick, Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum. (Interesting)

What does this mean for both organizations?

For Cleveland, this is a miracle. Whatever the MRI revealed it gives the Cav’s trade leverage to receive more from Boston. The Celtics can’t afford to take I.T back after trading him and making it clear that they no longer need his services.

However, the 2016 NBA champions can afford to take Irving back and look for another trade destination.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the teams are planning a call today to discuss the next steps regarding the status of the blockbuster trade.
