Boston Celtics: Why they should sweeten the deal with the Cavaliers

Boston Celtics: Remaining free agents that can help in 2017

It appears that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics will be reworking a deal involving superstars Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas.

ISAIAH THOMAS: His move to Cleveland comes after he had a career-best season while helping Boston reach the Eastern Conference final.

The Celtics have already been linked to Pelicans star Anthony Davis, and while New Orleans has said they are not shopping him, Boston is hoping they can lure him away - and believe adding Kyrie Irving has helped their chances of doing so.

In shipping Kyrie to Boston, the Cavaliers got Celtics' leading scorer Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 unprotected first-round pick [VIDEO] via Brooklyn Nets.

Another picture of Crowder in Cavs gear while standing in a hospital room also made its rounds on the Internet, which may have been taken while undergoing his physical for Cleveland. Boston also has multiple second-round draft picks, which they could include in a deal. "Boston believes that it was completely transparent with Cleveland about where Thomas was physically, his rehab", Wojnarowski added.

Austin hadn't heard of I.T.'s injury holding up the deal. but told TMZ Sports NBA fans can chill out about it cause the Cavs and Celtics are handlin' business. If the trade doesn't go through by Wednesday night, both teams will need to mutually agree to extend the trade-review deadline. They have until Thursday to complete the trade.

Thomas did not undergo surgery to fix his hip, and Celtics president Danny Ainge admitted on a conference call last week after the trade was announced that "there's going to be probably a little bit of a delay for Isaiah as he starts the season this year, but - um - I think that Isaiah should be fine and healthy as the season goes along".

Irving will become an unrestricted free agent in 2020, and if you're going to offer a star point guard the max, give it to the younger player. Still, it is unlikely that the Celtics could find a point guard of Thomas' stature on the market - never mind Irving's. "Emotionally, he's wounded." Thomas would go on to say that "I think it's going to be hard for him to trust again".
