The Kyrie Irving – Isiah Thompson Trade
Pre-season basketball is known to be just as exciting as the regular season. Trade rumors, Gatorade Summer League basketball games, staff changes, and the like are all examples of what can be expected before the regular season begins. Teams hope of transforming and cultivating their rosters to be playoff, and championship finals ready. General managers and front offices of struggling and in some cases, not so struggling NBA franchises, devise trade deals, evaluate contracts, and buy outs to examine very carefully the economy of the league. Notable Eastern Conference giants such as Cleveland and Boston are two teams that engaged in an unprecedented trade deal sparking up new talks of player’s loyalty with their future and potential in their new homes.
