Kyrie Irving got his wish and the Eastern Conference, for one season at least, got a monster rivalry in the making.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are sending Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Nets’ unprotected 2018 first-round pick, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania.



Irving averaged a career-high 25.2 points to go along with 5.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals last season. He has two guaranteed years left on his contract.

Thomas, 28, averaged 28.9 points (third in the NBA), 5.9 assists, and 2.7 boards per contest for the Celtics, who finished atop the East.
