The trade is yet to officially and completely go through, yes. However, I am very confident that it will. There is no better offer out there for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Plain and simple.
Now let's not forget what else Cleveland got in this deal. They got the most valuable contract in the NBA. Jae Crowder is making chump change compared to what other NBA starters have been bringing in.
The Celtics have no reason to give up anything more. The only ones that think there is more to come seems to be the Cleveland front office.
It does not appear that the players in this deal think it'll be reversed.
The Celtics have been working out players (highlighted by Thomas Robinson) during this whole ordeal. They will only have an open roster spot if this deal were to go through.
Now, if the Celtics feel they have to give up something else just to get this over with, what will they give up?
What they may give up is one of their own '18 or '19 draft picks.
So again, rest assured that (as Celtics fans) you will be seeing Irving in green come time for the season. This chaos will most likely be over soon. The Celtics gave the best offer for Kyrie the Cavs will ever find.
