BREAKING: KYRIE IRVING TRADED TO THE CELTICS

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.
