A reversal of the Isaiah Thomas for Kyrie Irving swap would be disastrous for both teams.
PAUL GEORGE: After George indicated he planned to leave IN as a free agent next summer, the Pacers went ahead and dealt the four-time all-star to the Oklahoma City Thunder this summer for guard Victor Oladipo and forward Damontas Sabonis. Irving, 25, who requested the trade last month, would have to return to a Cavs team after requesting a trade.
After the Cavaliers examined Thomas, they began seeking an amended trade price for Irving.
All along, Boston has believed it was clear in its assessment of Thomas' physical status and that information was communicated to the Cavaliers in the conversations before Tuesday's trade, league sourcessaid. Besides a battery of young talent, the Celtics also own a chest of draft picks that could potentially land them another Top-5 selection in the coming years.
Reports emerged Friday night that the Cavaliers were concerned with a recent physical regarding Thomas' injured hip. Boston may be able to use protected picks from the Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies and L.A. Clippers.
Meanwhile, it appears that the Cavaliers will come back and ask for specific players on the Boston roster.
Thomas sustained a torn labrum in his right hip March 15 against the Minnesota Timberwolves, re-aggravated it in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Washington Wizards and aggravated it more against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the conference finals. Still, it is unlikely that the Celtics could find a point guard of Thomas' stature on the market - never mind Irving's. They have until Thursday to complete the trade.
As of Sunday, the two teams have yet to re-engage in talks.
Ultimately though, the Cavaliers thought Boston's offer was much more enticing, and who can blame them?
This way, the Cavaliers wouldn't be fortifying the biggest threat to their Eastern Conference supremacy, Boston, in the final year before James could leave in free agency.
