Injured Isaiah Thomas vows to return as 'the same player'

Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers- Game Four

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told reporters that Thomas' hip played "some role" in the decision to trade him. Thomas met with Cleveland's doctors on Saturday, who raised some concerns that the 5-foot-9 guard's return to the floor might not be as soon as the team was hoping.

Because of this latest issue, some details as mentioned on CBS Sports were released with regards to the update on the said NBA blockbuster deal.

Before the deal, the teams exchanged information about the injured hip that had forced Thomas out of the playoffs, but Cleveland is making the argument that Boston wasn't entirely forthcoming.

In case James walks opts out next season and based on news reports, he probably will, the Cavs still have a high pick so they can start building foundations for the future.

Cleveland had significantly valued the 2018 Nets pick in the trade, and Boston believed it allowed for Thomas' physical uncertainty in the current terms of the deal, league sources said.

"The Cavs are no longer seeking one of the Celtics' top young players", Wojnarowski wrote.

That's a huge step from where the conversation was just a few days ago. While he never traded away a player as talented as Irving, his approval of the trade and comments on why it was such a great trade for the wine and gold is definitely a good thing and has to make Altman happy. This means that they can re-sign him while being in the luxury tax.

"The Milwaukee Bucks lurk on the fringes of the Irving bidding with an offer centered around Malcolm Brogdon, the reining NBA Rookie of the Year, and Khris Middleton, sources say".

If Cleveland really does want more in exchange for Kyrie Irving, the Boston Celtics don't know the specifics.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowki reported on Sportscenter that the Cavaliers are asking about Jayson Tatum and second-year wing Jaylen Brown. But the deal was subject to all players taking-and passing-a physical, and the Cavs decided to explore their options regarding the completion of the deal after examining Thomas' hip. I wouldn't be surprised if either one of those teams went to the final. But after bringing the two-time All-Star guard to Cleveland late last week for his physical, the Cavaliers suddenly were concerned about when.or if.Thomas would be available in 2017-18.

If the Cavaliers want to void the deal, they will need to do so by 10 a.m. on Thursday morning.

It is likely that Cleveland would ask for something more - possibly significantly more - SB Nation noted. "That doesn't mean he won't be the best available player at the trade deadline".
