Kyrie Irving #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers drives against Isaiah Thomas #4 of the Boston Celtics during the second quarter in the first round of the 2015 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden on April 23, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Cleveland had significantly valued the 2018 Nets pick in the trade, and Boston believed it allowed for Thomas' physical uncertainty in the current terms of the deal, league sources said.

Irving, 25, didn't get too deeply into his motives for asking to be traded.
Thomas entering the final year of his contract gave the Celtics their own hard decision to make over the 1.75m dynamo who had become a fan favourite, as well as a two-time All Star, since joining the team in 2015. Thomas, meanwhile, is in his previous year of contract with the Celtics.
