Celtics Checked In With Cavs Regarding Kyrie Irving
While it's highly unlikely that the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to ship disgruntled point guard Kyrie Irving to their Eastern Conference rivals, the Boston Celtics, the C's still put in a call.
According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, the Celtics made the "obligatory call" to the Cavs regarding the growing news that Irving has asked for a trade.
Though the Cavs and C's seem to be far from a dealing duo, Boston has plenty of interesting assets to offer up, so never say never.
Although rationalizing Cleveland helping out Boston is tough to do, it could happen. Regardless of a deal between the two getting done, any deal that sends Irving out of Cleveland would be a huge win for the C's.
