  • The Cavs' imperfect deadline was the best they could do

    The Cleveland Cavaliers lost the Kyrie Irving trade. They also made the best available Kyrie Irving trade, solely because of the one asset Cleveland held onto during Thursday's borderline unprecedented two-hour frenzy: the Nets pick, which could enter the lottery anywhere from No. 1 to No. 8. (Seriously: Look how close the standings are at the bottom.) Once Cleveland's dream scenario of landing both Eric Bledsoe and Paul George fell apart around the draft, no other team was offering anything so valuable for Irving -- veteran, young guy, draft pick, whatever. Perhaps the Cavs should have decided to ignore Irving's trade request, but they didn't, and they arrived at this trade deadline with an

  • Report: Cavaliers Only Open To Trading Nets' Pick for Long-Term Fix

    The Cavaliers are reportedly open to including the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round draft pick in a trade package only if it helps the team long run, reports Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer. Cleveland acquired the 2018 pick from the Celtics as part of the Kyrie Irving deal. According to Pluto, the pick is off limits for short-term help such as Clippers center DeAndre Jordan.

  • Report: Irving threatened season-ending knee surgery if Cavaliers refused to trade him

  • For Isaiah Thomas, no hard feelings in his return to Boston

    Isaiah Thomas wanted to make thing one perfectly clear during his return to Boston: He isn't holding onto any hard feelings about the way he left. Thomas returned to TD Garden on Wednesday night for the first time since he was dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers in August as part of the blockbuster trade that brought Kyrie Irving to the Celtics. It was the lowest point of a whirlwind summer for Thomas, which was compounded by his ongoing recovery from the hip injury that cut short his postseason run with Boston last season. The injury sidelined him for Cleveland's season opener against his former team back in October. He missed the Cavs' first 36 games before returning to action against Portland
