Cavaliers asking for a lot more as blockbuster veto threat looms

  • CLEVELAND OH – MARCH 23 Kyrie Irving

League sources have now told ESPN that the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers are planning to hold a telephone call today to talk about the uncertain status of the Kyrie Irving trade.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Friday night that Thomas had his physical earlier in the day and that the Cavs are "weighing their options". 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.

The trade, announced by both teams, saw Irving land in Boston with Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and an unprotected first round pick originally belonging to the Brooklyn Nets head back to Cleveland.

Just days after the blockbuster National Basketball Association trade (courtesy of the Boston Globe) shipping Thomas and Irving to the Cavaliers and Celtics was agreed upon, it may be reversed.

Now, the Cavaliers are conducting a thorough review of the trade and plotting their next step, which may also include asking the Celtics for more compensation.

Kyrie's departure gives additional security to the Cavaliers' future should LeBron James made a decision to leave Cleveland next year. If and when Cleveland does request another asset, Boston probably will not cheerfully hand over Tatum, their prized first-round draft pick, or another draft pick that they have carefully stockpiled. Since Isaiah Thomas most likely isn't the long-term answer, Boston needs that superstar talent to match Hayward. However, both teams can agree to extend the deadline if interested.

Salvador Segovia drove around the neighborhood searching for Otis, but still had no luck finding the German shepherd. Meanwhile, neighbor Tiele Dockens saw Otis carrying his bag of food and took a picture, which has since gone viral.

The Celtics have reportedly drawn a line in the sand on the deal as they believe they were up front with Cleveland about Thomas' injury.

The Pelicans essentially have a "playoffs or bust" mentality going into the season after trading for DeMarcus Cousins at the deadline a year ago and, with Cousins set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, the future of the franchise is largely uncertain.

Several other factors come into play when considering how much Cleveland should ask for.

An already shocking trade has become all the more complex.

Trading with the Celtics for an injured Isaiah Thomas may have stung the Cavaliers a bit. They have until Thursday to complete the trade.
