It appears that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics will be reworking a deal involving superstars Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas. If the Celtics oblige then the swap of Isaiah Thomas for Kyrie Irving will be made official.

Cleveland began looking for more compensation from Boston following Thomas' physical with the Cavs on Friday, where they discovered that his injury was more severe than they thought. For this reason, we can't get too upset when a beloved player is traded, OR when they decide to leave for another team.

More Cavs trade rumors, even after the franchise makes the biggest trade of the summer. The Cavs would seemingly want to wrap up an Irving trade before they hold media day on September 25 and begin practice the next day.

On the other hand, he added: "All along, Boston has believed it was clear in its assessment of Thomas' physical status and that the information was communicated to the Cavaliers in the conversations before Tuesday's trade". As Thomas' injury certainly casts a cloud over the conclusion of this trade, the Cavs are hoping for an extra asset to sweeten the deal, and reduce the risk. There shouldn't be any scenario where Boston would give up either player. Cleveland was in talks to trade Shumpert and his $10.3 million contract to Minnesota or Houston, but both deals fell apart.

The Macau Journalists Association strongly condemned the ban of Hong Kong reporters and said it was a huge blow to press freedom. The gambling hub was forced to rely on backup generators to power its casinos.

Thomas initially injured his hip in March during the regular season and missed two games. The undersized Thomas averaged a career-high tally of 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game last season.

The Pelicans essentially have a "playoffs or bust" mentality going into the season after trading for DeMarcus Cousins at the deadline previous year and, with Cousins set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, the future of the franchise is largely uncertain. If this attempt goes pear-shaped, they could always renegotiate with the Cavs and throw in the extra asset.

"Now, Cleveland is going to try to inquire about a couple of the Celtics' young players, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, who they tried to get in the original trade, that is very unlikely". But the most impact could be the 2018 unprotected first-round pick.

Cavaliers backup shooting guard Iman Shumpert has reportedly requested a similar trade, seemingly frustrated after being on the team's trading block numerous times the last two years.
