The trade between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers – Kyrie Irving for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizc and the Brooklyn Nets’ first-round draft pick – had been halted due to reported subpar results in Isaiah Thomas’ physical. The Cavs had reportedly been hoping to receive another asset in the deal. Well, they got a minor one, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

The second-round pick will be that of the Miami Heat, reports USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt:

Wojnarowski confirms:

So, for clarity’s sake:

Cavaliers receive: Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crwoder, Ante Zizic, 2018 Brooklyn Nets first-round pick, 2020 Miami Heat second-round pick.

Celtics receive: Kyrie Irving.

The drama is over.
