Cavaliers asking for a lot more as blockbuster veto threat looms

Cleveland wanted an All-Star talent in return for Kyrie, and that's exactly what they got in the form of Isaiah Thomas, not to mention defensive-stopper Jae Crowder and the coveted Brooklyn Nets pick. If the trade doesn't go through by Wednesday night, both teams will need to mutually agree to extend the trade-review deadline. The Cavaliers were not informed that much of the extent of the injury of Thomas and that they are now looking for more assets in addition from what they already got.

Should the deal fall through and the star guards remain on their current teams, National Basketball Association fans can enjoy increased drama between Irving and James and Thomas and the franchise that was happy to trade him.

Despite what may happen with the potential veto of last weeks trade, Isaiah Thomas is no longer a Boston Celtics player as far as he's concerned. Boston does have control of several second-round draft picks, too, which also could be included into a deal.

The Cavaliers are both trying to set up for a championship run this season and prepare for their future, with LeBron James able to opt out after the year. The C's additionally possess the Clippers' 2019 first-round pick, which is lottery-protected. "Boston believes that it was completely transparent with Cleveland about where Thomas was physically, his rehab".

There has been growing belief that Thomas will not be ready to join the Cavs' training camp and could also miss a significant part of next season as he continues to recover from the hip pointer injury.

Irving was scheduled to take his physical with the Celtics on Saturday in Boston, league sources said.

Sure, one of those future draft picks that Boston trades away could turn into a future superstar, but we already have our future superstar in Irving. Still, it is unlikely that the Celtics could find a point guard of Thomas' stature on the market - never mind Irving's.

Shumpert has actually been a solid role player for the Cavaliers in his two-plus seasons with the team. The Cavaliers could ultimately help themselves in the short term by moving Irving to one of the several Western Conference teams with whom they had discussed deals.
