The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have made a surprise trade. The Cavaliers will receive Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder,Ante Zizic and the 2018 Nets pick in exchange for Kyrie Irving.
Kyrie Irving has been involved in trade rumors all summer. Earlier this summer, there were reports of Kyrie Irving requesting a trade. Since then. several rumors began to circulate. Irving’s preferred teams were the Knicks ,Spurs,Heat or Timberwolves. He ended up with the Celtics.
This trade is a win-win for both sides. The Cavs avoided potential chemistry issues during the regular season. If Irving was unhappy, his morale could have affected the locker room. The Celtics receive Kyrie Irving. Irving wants to lead his own team. He not only has the talent, but now the opportunity.
The Cavs and Celtics rivalry becomes more interesting. They are the top two teams of the East. We will likely see this match-up in the Conference Finals. I can’t wait to see these teams in the regular season. What are your thoughts on this trade?
