According to Dick Vitale of ESPN, the trade between the Cavaliers and Celtics will be agreed upon and happen.
The trade has been one of the most talked about topics of the NBA offseason and its only been about a week. The Cavs are concerned about Thomas’ hip injury and were said to be asking for either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown and the Celtics refused to let go of either one of them. With the trade already being agreed upon and the players on both sides being very aware of the situation, it would be in both teams’ best interest to just complete the trade. Team chemistry would be destroyed if Thomas and Irving went back to their former teams and would most likely have to be traded again anyway.
