On Friday it was reported that Cavaliers G Kyrie Irving was unhappy playing with LeBron James and would like to be traded.
Today, the Celtics have made a call to the Cavs inquiring about the unhappy guard:

I don’t see Cleveland sending Irving to the only team in the East that can threaten them. But, if the Celtics pull this off, that would be absolutely insane. The deal would most likely include IT, Crowder and either another player or future pick. Last year Irving averaged 25.2 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 5.8 APG.
I’ll tell you what, if losing IT (who made it known he wants max money) means that we can land Kyrie Irving, you do that 100% of the time. Irving with Hayward, Tatum, Brown, Horford and the rest are legit contenders. I don’t see this happening, but we can dream, right?
