Done Deal, Kyrie Comes To Boston [VIDEO]
It took a 2020 second round draft pick but the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers have finally, officially, agreed to the big trade sending Kyrie Irving to Boston and Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland.
The deadline of 10am today was approaching and the two teams hammered out things last night.
