Original Story:

Fireworks are flying in the NBA world, as word broke Tuesday evening that the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers are in advanced discussions on a deal that would involve Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas. However, there might be a sticking point in the negotiations and, as usual, it would involve Celtics general manager Danny Ainge trying to hold on to a young asset.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN indicated on SportsCenter that the Celtics don’t want to part with No. 3 overall pick Jayson Tatum and that was echoed by a report from CSNNE.com.
