Quantcast



Isaiah Thomas traveled to Cleveland today to complete his physical with the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal that sends Kyrie Irving to Boston could still be voided due to Thomas' hip injury, calling it a "very sensitive situation."





Wojnarowski went into detail on the situation in a longer piece on ESPN.com, detailing that the Cavs could potentially ask for another pick from Boston. Another key piece of information he shared was that Cleveland valued the 2018 Brooklyn pick the most out of all the assets acquired in the trade:

The Cavaliers still are evaluating the medical information, and no final decision has been made, league sources said.

On Tuesday, the Celtics traded Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Irving.

In that deal, Cleveland has most valued the 2018 unprotected first-round pick that Boston controls from the Nets, league sources said. Instead of voiding the deal, Cleveland could potentially push for Boston to sweeten it -- namely for another draft pick. For now, those are conversations still potentially to be had.

Irving is scheduled to take his physical with the Celtics on Saturday, league sources said.

The situation is now similar to the 2012 Ray Allen/OJ Mayo trade that fell through. Ironically, Ray weighed in earlier today on Instagram about his feelings on Boston's loyalty towards Isaiah. We could now see a repeat of 2012 should the trade get rescinded due to the results of Thomas' physical.

Celtics Life will be following this developing story and provide updates on any future news regarding complications with the blockbuster trade.
