C’s Do In Fact Land Irving In Blockbuster Deal

2017 NBA Finals - Game Five

After all the rapid reports about the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers potentially making a blockbuster deal that have come out in the past hour, it appears the deal is done. 

According to The Vertical’s Shams Charania, the C’s and Cavs have reportedly agreed on a deal that will send Kyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the unprotected, 2018, first round Brooklyn Nets pick.

The C’s now have a true superstar in the 25-year-old Irving, who could help to make young guns Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, newly acquired free agent Gordon Hayward and big man Al Horford all better.

While Boston snagged Irving, who is an elite talent, they also got him for somewhat of a bargain price.

Yes, Thomas has been a stud in Boston, but he has been dealing with a bad hip recently and there have been consistent questions about whether he could be the key cog of a legitimate championship contender. Also, he was due for a lofty pay raise, following the season.

From there, Boston shipped Crowder, who was relegated to a bench role with the additions of Hayward and Tatum this offseason, an unproven young big man in Zizic and an unfounded though expected high draft pick from Brooklyn.

That spells a win for Boston, plain and simple.
