Cavs' Gilbert: 'We killed it' with Kyrie Irving trade



The decision to trade Kyrie Irving to Boston for a future first-round pick, Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic and Jae Crowder was a bona fide win for the Cavaliers.

That's how Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert feels, anyway, a sentiment expressed via The Cleveland Plain Dealer on Wednesday. Citing Irving's desire to be traded – and his agent alluding to his need for knee surgery if he wasn't dealt – Gilbert dubbed the Cavs' escape from the awkward predicament nothing short of a win for the hard-fallen franchise. [19659002] “We could have ended up with nothing. Looking back after all the moves [general manager] Koby [Altman] made, we killed it in that trade, "Gilbert declared after stating he thinks Irving, an unrestricted free agent this summer, will leave Boston.

Irving has averaged 24.1

points , 6.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds en route to a pair of All-Star appearances in his two years with the Celtics.He missed the 2018 Playoffs due to injury, however, before Boston suffered a 4-1 second-round defeat to Milwaukee in 2019

Cleveland, meanwhile, used the Nets pick they acquired in the trade to draft Collin Sexton, who earned All-Rookie Second Team honors in 2018-19.Zizic showed promise as the Cavs backup center this season, while Crowder and Thomas were traded again just months after Cleveland acquired them.
