Cavs add second-round pick from Celtics to complete Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas trade

1:29 AM ET

With a Thursday morning deadline looming, the Boston Celtics agreed to send the Cleveland Cavaliers a 2020 second-round draft pick via the Miami Heat to acquire four-time All-Star guard Kyrie Irving and complete the blockbuster trade.

The Celtics resisted the Cavaliers’ desire for a first-round pick to compensate the Cavs’ reluctance to sign off on Isaiah Thomas‘ hip injury, and Cleveland finally agreed to consummate the deal late Wednesday night.

Irving is scheduled to be introduced at a news conference in Boston on Friday, league sources said.
