Cavs have yet to contact Celtics about reworking trade

Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas are at the center of a trade between the Cavaliers and Celtics.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to contact the Boston Celtics about renegotiating the trade centered on Kyrie Irving, according to a report from the Boston Herald.

“There has been no contact between the two teams since multiple reports surfaced that the Cavaliers, alarmed by the results of Isaiah Thomas’ physical last Friday, now want more in exchange for Irving,” wrote Mark Murphy of the Herald.

The Cavs and Celtics agreed to the parameters of a trade that will send Irving to the Celtics in exchange for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 pick.

One source familiar with the talks told Amico Hoops last week that Thomas’ injured hip was worse than the team was initially led to believe.

The source added Tuesday that the Cavs could be contemplating multiple reworked trade scenarios before pitching them to the Celtics.

The Cavs have not indicated that they are actually seeking more compensation, but multiple reports have suggested they are.

The trade, however, has not been finalized.

“Multiple reports now indicate that Cleveland officials, including new general manager Koby Altman, believe Thomas’ return may be more delayed than the Celtics relayed,” according to the Herald.

The Cavs have until Thursday morning to veto the trade, though the sides can agree to extend that deadline.

ESPN reported the Cavs had planned to inquire about Celtics second-year wing Jaylen Brown or rookie forward Jayson Tatum.

  1. Whisperer doing Whispery things!

  2. So why does Adrian Wojnarowski keep reporting lies?

  3. Looks like Bostons 1(if we’re lucky) and trade goes through. When IT will actually be able to play is fuzzy to me. Maybe sometime between Dec. 1 and Jan. 1. IT said in an interview that he is still the same player. If you don’t mind I’m not betting my house on that.

  4. Awesome Site. Really enjoyed reading.
