The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to send Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in a deal for Isaiah Thomas, league sources told The Vertical.
The Celtics are sending Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 first-round pick to Cleveland, league sources told The Vertical.
Irving agreed to waive his trade kicker to complete the deal, league sources told The Vertical.
Irving requested a trade in mid-July after meeting with the Cavs, and the situation created an urgency for the franchise to find a suitable trade agreement. The Cavaliers are acquiring a starting point guard in Thomas, a versatile player on a team-friendly contract in Crowder and an attractive Nets’ pick.
