Irving traded for Thomas, Crowder, Zizic, 18 Nets pick

Major trade in the East in the NBA, I'm sure you've heard of it. This'll definitely shake up basketball in the East. Do the Celtics have a chance at the finals? Was this a good trade for Cleveland or Boston?

Head scratcher of a trade.  A rare misstep by Ainge.

Looks like it could possibly be voided due to Isaiah Thomas' hip injury:

It still went through after the Celtics threw in a 2nd round pick to compensate for Thomas's injury. As a Bucks fan, I'm just glad the rumored potential deal of the Bucks sending Middleton and Brogdon to the Cavs for Irving never took place. As good as Irving is, I think he would have totally disrupted the building team the Bucks have going on. I'll be happier if the Bucks just keep building around the major pieces that have, like Giannis, Middleton, Parker, Brogdon, and Maker.
