Report: C’s Nearing Deal With Cavs Involving Kyrie Irving & Isaiah Thomas
Trader Danny might just be set to make his best move yet.
Irving had demanded a trade from Cleveland in late July and the team had been actively shopping the star point guard, since he had an apparent falling out with superstar Lebron James.
Bringing in a talent that of Irving for Thomas, who though the fan base loves him is not a key guy to build a true long-term contender around, Crowder, who was seemingly on the outside looking in in terms of minutes with the overflow of swing men on the team and Zizic, who hasn't been in the league yet and has looked raw in summer league play, would be an all-time steal.
Even adding in the draft pick, which are unproven assets, doesn't damper what a win this deal would be for the C's. Not only would having Irving boost Boston, but it would also directly weaken the team's biggest Eastern Conference opponent.
