ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski dropped a major bombshell around the National Basketball Association world Friday night when he indicated that the Cleveland Cavaliers were weighing options before making the blockbuster Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas trade official.

After a career season, Thomas was ultimately shut down after the Celtics lost the first two games against the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

This may all be for nothing if Isaiah Thomas is cleared by the Cavaliers team doctors but according to league sources, IT hasn't even started running yet.

After Irving demanded to be traded in July, the Cavaliers entertained numerous offers before striking a deal with Boston. He re-injured the hip during the Eastern Conference semifinals and eventually missed the final three games of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Isiah also said the Cavaliers need to make sure that Isaiah's heart is in the right place. All players must pass [a] physical, or a deal can be voided. Thomas left Cleveland Friday evening after taking the physical. After all, Isaiah Thomas is three years older than Irving, and that could be a big factor on whether he would decline after sustaining a hip injury last season. The Cavs' front-office, led by new general manager Koby Altman, worked hard over the summer to accommodate Irving's wish for a trade.

But the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement allows a trade to be voided if a player fails a physical, with one such instance past year when then Houston Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas failed a medical and the three-team deal between the Rockets, Detroit Pistons and Philadelphia 76ers was cancelled. Kyrie Irving is the lone player headed to Boston from Cleveland. It was thought that he may have to have hip surgery but that turned out not to be the case. The trade could benefit Golden State because the featured piece can't quite stay on the floor against them during crunch time.

"In the deal, Cleveland has placed the most value on the 2018 unprotected first-round pick that Boston controls from the Nets, league sources said". The clincher, though, is the 2018 first round pick, which has the potential to turn into a rising star in next year's draft.
