I'm not a fan of either team by a long shot, but I think the Cavs just pantsed the Celts on this deal.
2018 1RDP fm Brooklyn, top 10 protected. If it is protected, then it becomes UNPROTECTED in 2019.
Irving is 3 yrs younger and has an extra year on his contract. Both are similar players. But Thomas has never been a troublemaker. They got a haul after he said he wanted out.
Irving wanted out b/c he wants to be "the man". I wonder how that will over in BOS. While I loathe Ainge on just about every level, he has shown himself to be a very astute GM...... until trading the top overall pick in the draft, his inability to land Butler or George, and now this.
Irving is a Kobe Bryant type ball-hog w/o the defensive talent.
Well done, Cavs, well done.
