The Kyrie Irving trade that had the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics trade Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas is a hot topic right now. Kyrie Irving wanted this trade out of Cleveland and away from LeBron so it seems the fact that an injured Isaiah Thomas was involved in a trade meant that the Cavs were desperate to trade Kyrie Irving and not let the bad atmosphere spill into training camp. LeBron James actually took the high road and thanked Kyrie Irving for everything he did for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Meanwhile Boston Celtics are extremely happy and confident that they can keep Kyrie Irving after the trade on a long term. There are multiple reports that confirmed this but Kyrie still has 2 years on his deal.
