Before the Boston Celtics landed Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers the Cavs reached out to the Golden State Warriors to talk trade.

Cleveland liked a package that would send Irving to Golden State in return for a package centered around Klay Thompson, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated.
