The trade between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston and sent Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland is official.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics are sending a 2020 second-round pick (from Miami) along with the already agreed upon package of Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 first round pick.

Cleveland had until 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 31 to void the trade following Thomas’ physical.

Questions About Thomas’ Hip

The trade was delayed and nearly voided after Cleveland became uncertain about Thomas’ injured hip.

Thomas suffered a hip injury in the playoffs last season, forcing him to miss the rest of the Eastern Conference finals.

He has been rehabilitating it since his season ended.

If the trade had been voided, the Celtics would have gotten Thomas, Crowder, Zizic and the Nets 2018 first round pick back. Cleveland would have gotten Irving back.

According to reports, the Milwaukee Bucks were preparing to make an offer to Cleveland for Irving if the trade with the Celtics fell through.
