'I'll be back' says Thomas as Celtics-Cavs wrangle

Irving has been wanting out [VIDEO] of Cleveland for weeks, and there have been talks about where he might be traded.

The Cavaliers reportedly want Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum along with Isaiah Thomas in a deal that will send star Kyrie Irving to the Celtics. In a recent interview with Comcast SportsNet New England, general manager Danny Ainge admitted there was a possibility Thomas wouldn't be ready for the start of the season. A team which stood atop his former, Cleveland Cavaliers last season in the Eastern Conference. In its latest update, the said trade involving Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas is back on and the Celtics just agreed to give up the second draft in order to compensate for Thomas' injured hip.

The Cavs had initially sought an additional first-round pick or another young player as insurance against Thomas's injury, a negotiating gambit rejected by Boston.

Thomas opted to not have surgery and is undergoing a rehab process instead this offseason.

"I cursed probably twice, and then I ran out", Irving said.

The playmaker also released a 4-minute video, via ESPN's Rachel Nichols, where he explained his decision to leave the organization. The two players, arriving from Utah and Cleveland respectively, spoke at the press conference and Irving addressed the reasons why he left LeBron James in Ohio. Crowder will improve the Cleveland Cavaliers game on both ends of the floor in the small forward or power forward position, as he is arguably better than Iman Shumpert in every way. I have a daughter, and I have a family that I love dearly and once I know the team was going to make a move, I was just patiently waiting. Irving is exactly the type of player the Celtics need, a proven playoff performer and a victor.

Kyrie Irving does, and as the newest member of the Boston Celtics, Irving recorded a farewell video to his spurned team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Boston Celtics will formally introduce their two summer All-Star acquisitions in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on Friday morning at TD Garden. "I put a lot of hours in and a lot of work into just trying to accomplish things that I have dreamt of as a kid". Given that the Cavaliers only got a future second-round pick, the information they learned at the physical was presumably not much more than they were originally given by the Celtics.
