Report: No contact between Celtics and Cavs over adding more to trade


If the Cavs are seeking additional compensation from the Celtics in the Isaiah Thomas-Kyrie Irving trade, they haven't let the Celtics know, according to a Boston Herald report. 

The Herald's Mark Murphy reports that there's been no contact between the two teams since the reports Friday night that the Cavs, alarmed by Isaiah Thomas’ physical, want more as part of the deal.


More from Murphy's story:

The Celtics are said to have no contingency plan in place — due to the lack of contact — and no plan to either include another asset to make the trade go through or to draw a line and refuse further compensation.

The Cavs, who have not expressed dissatisfaction to the Celtics, let alone made an alternative demand, have until Thursday morning to void the deal. The sides can also agree to extend the deadline.

The Celtics medical staff, headed by Dr. Brian McKeon, was in extensive contact with its Cleveland counterpart in the days leading up to the Aug. 22 trade, with an equally extensive exchange of information stemming from Thomas’ recovery from a torn labrum in his right hip.
