According to several reports, the Cleveland Cavs have agreed to trade Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 first-round pick. Today’s trade news comes after what has been a tumultuous off season. Irving demanded a trade in July during a meeting with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert saying that he could no longer play with LeBron James. Irving has three years left on his $60 million contract with an opt-out option in the final year before the 2019-2020 season. Isaiah Thomas has spent the offseason recovering from a right hip injury.  It’s worth noting that the Cavs will be hosting the Celtics on October 17th.
