Kyrie Irving Trade: Cavs inquire about Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum

  • CLEVELAND OH – MARCH 23 Kyrie Irving

Now, the Cavaliers are reportedly seeking additional compensation for the roadblock with Thomas, in the form of either Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum; but Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reported on Monday that Cleveland had yet to make a request for an additional asset. "But Boston still has a war chest of future first-round picks of their own, and some picks they control from other teams, and Cleveland is going to try to get one more of those to finalize this deal".

The thinking now is if they can attach a draft pick to a deal for Shumpert and not receive a player in return, that would give them the flexibility to add another player to the roster in case Thomas goes down with a potentially season-ending injury.

Isaiah Thomas #4 of the Boston Celtics reacts in the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game Two of the 2017 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on May 19, 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts.

We will not know anything for sure until the Cavaliers reach out to the Celtics, but after nothing changed with the physical, the Cavaliers lose all the supposed leverage they had while speculating if Thomas' injury was worse than the Celtics had revealed.

There's just one issue: The Cavs haven't discussed that with the Celtics, according to a report by The Boston Herald's Mark Murphy. That is along with the players they were already receiving in return for Isaiah Thomas.

Regardless of what unfolds, Rose has a strong friendship with both players, and he feels they could easily work together on the court next season. Thomas went to Cleveland for the routine physical all players must pass in trade situations.

Defending champion Kerber knocked out in US Open first round
The world No 46 will face either Sweden's Rebecca Peterson or Denisa Allertova of the Czech Republic for a place in the last 32. It continues a disappointing year for 29-year-old Kerber , who has not won a title since her victory in NY 12 months ago.

The Cavaliers like this trade - the Thomas complications notwithstanding - especially the acquisition of Crowder and the unprotected first-round pick. As Mannix notes, Boston can throw in a second round pick - maybe their own, which will be in the mid-50s the next few years, guys drafted that deep rarely make the National Basketball Association (four guys in the 50s from the last two drafts played National Basketball Association games, none more than 42 total) - and that allows Cleveland to save face. The Boston Herald's Mark Murphy reports Cleveland hasn't even contacted Boston yet, and ESPN's Chris Haynes speculates the Cavaliers always meant to hold the trade up.

However, if both teams mutually agree to extend the deadline, they can. Thomas has one year left on his contract and if he's going to miss significant time in the only year he's guaranteed to be a Cavalier, then Boston better be ready to sweeten its offer.

This is all new ground for general manager Koby Altman, who has only been on the job full-time since mid-July.

But the concerns over Thomas have added an uneasiness to a trade we'll still be breaking down a decade from now.

So many predictions have been made out from this undecided trade deal between Irving and Thomas.
