In exchange for Irving, the Celtics sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the 18 Nets pick to Cleveland.
James and Irving will now face each other as opponents when the Cavaliers play the Celtics to open the season October 17 in Cleveland.
Aside from the shocking Irving's trade request, some sports analysts also claimed that this deal involving Kyrie and Thomas can already be considered as one of the most surprising and impactful trades in the history of National Basketball Association. For example, a team could include a first-round pick in a deal, but add a protection that allows the team to retain the pick if it ends up being in the top three of the lottery. The Celtics are, more or less, their only competition for the Eastern Conference crown, and LeBron has a decade-long rivalry with Boston. The NBA season may still be 54 days away, but the King is getting his body and mind ready early, as we all await another season of greatness from one of the greatest to ever do it. But despite Thomas' stellar play and seemingly high approval ratings in Boston through the course of last season, Celtics fans still took to the streets and posted videos on social media of them burning his jersey once the trade was officially announced.
Winfield explains every other major move the Celtics made between 2013 and now that led to acquiring Uncle Drew from Cleveland, including moving Rajon Rondo to the Mavericks in 2014 and grabbing Isaiah Thomas from the Suns in 2015 for nearly nothing. At 6-foot-6 and a solid 235 pounds, he can cover Kevin Durant or Draymond Green pretty well and possibly Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in a pinch.
For the Celtics, the advantage is clear.
Of course, the Cavaliers gave up a four-time All-Star in Irving to make this deal. Kyrie Irving has three years and US$60 million (AU$76 million) left on the five-year extension he signed in 2014.
