Isaiah Thomas' pauses blockbuster trade

27 August 2017

Irving, whose trade request led to the blockbuster deal, had been scheduled to take his physical for the Celtics on Saturday in Boston.

The injury to Thomas's hip was well known, however, this report suggests that the injury is worse than the Cavs were expecting. During Game 6 of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Washington Wizards, he re-aggravated the injury.

The Cavaliers and Celtics met in the Eastern Conference Finals this past spring, with Cleveland easily dispatching Boston in five games.

He wasn't required to have surgery during the offseason, and he and the team instead opted for a rehab process. This changed after Thomas flew in for his physical. This seems like the fairest option. According to Fan Sided, the Boston Celtics' team members did not like Thomas very much. He dealt with a hip injury during the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs, which was a focus of the trade discussions with the Cavaliers (h/t CBS Sports). The man (Thomas) was traded. After being traded to the Celtics during the 2014-15 National Basketball Association season, Thomas led them to three consecutive playoff appearances.

Irving's wish had come into reality and the Cavaliers looked like happy for what they got. He would tweet that he would have no issue leaving the team, which he later deleted. The pick became part of the sign-and-trade deal Boston engineered with Houston for Courtney Lee in 2012. The Cavaliers should take the compensation which is sure to be offered and complete this deal.

The idea of bringing Irving back is just as unappealing to Cleveland.

Besides that, there are other reasons for not voiding the trade. The deal sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick to Cleveland.

If the deal gets undone, there would be a lot of hurt feelings on both sides. He could just call it a wash and send an angry Kyrie Irving back to Cleveland. He played three years for the University of Washington and was selected by the Sacramento Kings as the 60th and final pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The Yankees then brought in Aroldis Chapman to pitch but right after he finished warming up, Romine and Cabrera started jawing. Yankees' relievers combined to give up six runs in four innings in place of Jaime Garcia , who only got 12 outs.

The Cavs were well aware of Thomas' condition before the trade and were prepared to have their doctors examine him - as they would following any trade. Even if Thomas returned to Boston and played well, there'd be no chance of pitching him with loyalty in free agency next summer.
