Why did Boston Celtics Trade Isaiah Thomas for Kyrie Irving?
After shocking the NBA universe with the unprecedented trade between eastern conference chief rival, people are still wondering why in the world would Boston Celtics trade their best man last year?
Danny Ainge may have said that the opportunity to grab a young player like Kyrie Irving in his prime does not come every day but it does not fully justify why he would trade Isaiah Thomas, the player who has single handedly carried the Celtics to eastern conference finals.
Then this news surfaced.
The Celtics reportedly had "significant concerns" regarding Isaiah Thomas' hip injury, and that factored into Boston's willingness to trade him for Kyrie Irving.
Did you mean that the Cleveland Cavaliers never checked on the status of the injury of Isaiah Thomas?
The Cavs are "anxious" to bring in Thomas for a physical so that they can put a firm timetable on his return date, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, but overall the Cavs' front office doesn't have any short term concerns regarding Thomas' health.
The former Boston Celtics point guard has one year left on his contract and his performance this year may have a big effect on the kind of offers he could get. Isaiah Thomas will be 29 years old.
