It is likely that both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics will back out of their blockbuster National Basketball Association trade.

"Now, Cleveland is going to try to inquire about a couple of the Celtics' young players, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, who they tried to get in the original trade, that is very unlikely", Wojnarowski said. On Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the Cavs plan to seek further compensation in the trade after Thomas' physical.

If Boston sources are already saying that they "may" part with a second round pick, then it's likely that happens.

Both teams racked up so many because the bitterness didn't end with the sixth inning brawl - nor did the unsafe pitches. Facing Zach Duke in a lefty-lefty matchup, Asuaje grounded an 0-1 pitch just under diving first baseman Jedd Gyorko.

After the Cleveland Cavaliers' physical examination of former Boston Celtics point guard, Isaiah Thomas, the organization has requested an additional trade asset, on top of the agreed upon deal which included Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected 2018 first round pick.

After the details of the Cavaliers and Celtics trade were released, everyone said that Boston was fleeced in the deal.

Kyrie's departure gives additional security to the Cavaliers' future should LeBron James made a decision to leave Cleveland next year.

After finally acquiring Kyrie Irving via trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the #Boston Celtics are looking to make one more big move as the offseason slowly comes to an end. To build a championship roster, the Cavs traded draft picks and didn't have a first-round pick in 2016 and 2017.

Several other factors come into play when considering how much Cleveland should ask for.

According to a 2016 Rand Corp study, there were an estimated 1,320 to 6,000 transgender people openly serving in the military. President Donald Trump's proposed ban on transgender persons in the military is reportedly moving forward.

Sure, one of those future draft picks that Boston trades away could turn into a future superstar, but we already have our future superstar in Irving. It's possible the Cavaliers believe Thomas will miss more games than Boston did. They have until Thursday to complete the trade. The Cavaliers could ultimately help themselves in the short term by moving Irving to one of the several Western Conference teams with whom they had discussed deals.
