  • LeBron James, Tyronn Lue Reportedly 'Cooled' on Isaiah Thomas Trade After Exam

In exchange for Irving, the Cavaliers have received All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic, the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected 2018 first round draft pick, and the Celtics' 2020 second round draft pick.

In about a 30-minute press conference Irving did not mention James' name until about 27 minutes in, but he acknowledged the experience he had with James and how much he learned from the future hall of famer.

Kyrie Irving's blockbuster move to the Boston Celtics from the Cleveland Cavaliers has been completed following a delay caused by concerns over an injury to Isai ah Thomas, the teams confirmed. Reports say that they want more compensation in the trade following Thomas' medical test on his injured hip.

Boston wanted nothing to do with it.

However, even if he can't play during the start of the season, Ainge assured that Thomas should be fine at some point in the course of the season as they chose against a surgery on the hip.

West Brom complete sensational Krychowiak loan after purchasing Gibbs from Arsenal
The newspaper is well known for having close ties with Krychowiak, and they claim to have been in touch with his representative. The left-back has agreed a four-year-contract, and became West Brom's fifth signing of the summer earlier on Wednesday.

The improvement project was originally scheduled to begin soon after the 2017 NBA Finals, but community groups complained about the use of tax money and succeeded in getting a referendum, which likely would have led to putting the issue on the ballot, probably in 2018. But you aim high to work down to what they thought more realistic - another first round pick. The Celtics now have a player to give the ball to late in games.

In a video message "just to Cleveland", Irving, who was officially dealt to the Boston Celtics earlier this month, reflected "to my teammates, insane stories, crazy experiences, and unbelievable human beings, man". Isaiah Thomas is is a two-time NBA All-Star who made the All-NBA Second-Team last season.

The Celtics originally traded for Irving on August 22, but the deal wasn't finalized until Wednesday night when the Celtics added Miami's second-round pick as further compensation after Cleveland raised concerns about the status of Isaiah Thomas' injured hip.

Kyrie Irving did not mention LeBron James, now his former team-mate, while thanking Cleveland fans after his National Basketball Association trade to Boston was finalised.

For some fans, there may have been a sense of "we waited all week for that?" Depends on how good Miami is in three years, something very hard to predict. Miss Cleo might know the answers, but we don't know what that pick will be. Last year, the Celtics won 53 games and Cavs won 51 total.
