Thomas re-aggravated "right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear" against the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals.

The Cavaliers will also get the Miami Heat's 2020 second-round pick, but the Brooklyn Net's unprotected 2018 first-round pick is, without a doubt, the most attractive trade asset they got in return for Irving.

The two-time NBA All-Star point guard said a lot went through his head at the moment and the first thing he did was think about his family. The Boston Celtics have improved their package deal because of the injury concerns regarding the former Boston Celtic Isaiah Thomas.

Thomas said that he is "just getting treatment each and every day" and working in the weight room.

The Cavaliers will introduce its newest members - Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic in the roster during a press conference on Thursday, September 7, at the Cleveland Clinic Courts.

The Celtics sent him to the Cavaliers in exchange for Kyrie Irving, giving Thomas the opportunity to play alongside a three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James.

Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

Thomas will be the starting point guard for the Cavs next season, and he should benefit from playing alongside James. "You get to play with LeBron James!". That looming payday in free agency now depends on his medical history and if he can play up to par, following a season in which he put up 28.9 points per game.

"It's not about social media or anything like that connecting with (fans), it's all about showing what you bring to the team and showing how much you respect the game of basketball", said Crowder. "Like Koby said we have a plan and we're just going to attack that plan and get me back to 100 percent as soon as possible".

Now Crowder comes back to the team that initially selected him out of Marquette University, looking to fuel the bench as a lockdown defender and knock-down shooter -- one which the Cavs will make great use of coming into the start of the season. "I just told her 'I'm going to Cleveland, ' and five minutes later she passed".

Thomas was expected to rake in the big bucks with the Celtics before the trade materialized. I'm blessed to be traded to a situation where we could win a championship next year.
