Isaiah Thomas has been traded to the Cavaliers as a part of a package for Kyrie Irving. Thomas made it clear that he will be seeking a max deal in 2018, so that along with his hip injury may have factored into Boston's decision. The Cavaliers got quite a haul from the Celtics including Jae Crowder and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick which could have tremendous value. As for Thomas, he teams up with the best passer in the league in LeBron James, and while his numbers will likely trend down, his efficiency should rise. If he's a full go for training camp like he's anticipating, Thomas will still be an early-round fantasy pick in Cleveland. In case you missed it, he will have a fresh timetable after he undergoes another scan on his hip in early September.

The Celtics and Cavs have reportedly engaged in "serious" discussions regarding a trade that would send Kyrie Irving to Boston in a package that would include Isaiah Thomas and draft picks. The teams are still fine tuning the deal, but initial reports indicate that Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic would also be included in the package that Boston would send to Cleveland in exchange for Irving. In terms of fantasy hoops, Thomas wouldn't be quite the same usage monster he was with the Celtics as a member of the Cavs, and Derrick Rose would somewhat complicate the equation, so he'd likely see a slight dip in value in Cleveland. Crowder might not even start with the Cavs, so his value would take a fairly large hit.

Brad Stevens revealed during a recent interview that the Celtics won't have an official timetable for Isaiah Thomas (hip) until he undergoes another scan in early-September. "He has another follow-up and another scan in the early part of September," said Stevens of Thomas. "Obviously, it’s been a lot of appropriate rest, a lot of rehab. There have been some good strides here certainly in the last month or few weeks, but we’re not going to know that until after that early September timeframe." Thomas opted to let the labral tear in his right hip heal naturally, which has involved a fairly lengthy recovery period, but most reports up to this point have indicated that he'll be ready for camp.

Isaiah Thomas said that he is "very confident" that he'll get offered a max contract as a free agent next summer. Thomas will make just $6.3 million next season, an incredible value for the Celtics considering he'll likely be among the league's leading scorers once again. "I deserve [the max]," said Thomas. "I put the work in, and you can put me down against any guard in the NBA. My numbers are up there with the best players in the world, and my team is winning." The Celtics can offer approximately $177 million over five years. Considering Kyle Lowry got $100 million over three years, it's unlikely the C's offer Thomas the max.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) said that he "should be ready" for training camp. He opted to not have surgery this offseason and added that he's already started shooting and working on his cardio. "The hip is great," Thomas said. "It’s going well. Rehabbing it, but it’s going well. It’s a real slow rehab process, but it’s getting better and that’s what it’s all about." The Celtics have a lot more firepower after acquiring Gordon Hayward this summer, so Thomas' fantasy value could take a slight hit after posting monster averages of 28.9 points, 5.9 dimes and 3.2 triples last season.

Danny Ainge confirmed on Wednesday that Isaiah Thomas will not require hip surgery this offseason. "Isaiah is making good progress," Ainge said. "He’s out on the court; he’s shooting. He’s full-speed ahead on the stationary bike and working in the swimming pool. He’s progressing nicely." Thomas was forced out of the playoffs after severely aggravating his rip hip injury during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but he's been evaluated by multiple hip specialist since and it sounds like he'll be fine after some rest and relaxation. Thomas probably won't be a first-round talent next season with Gordon Hayward now in Boston, but he should still be able to flirt with top-25 value.
