Sources: Cavaliers could veto blockbuster trade if Celtics don't revise agreement

Report: Milwaukee Bucks Offered Shocking Deal To Cavs For Kyrie Irving

Someone happened to noticed the young guard playing National Basketball Association 2K17 on Xbox in the early morning hours of Monday as the Cleveland Cavaliers and ran up a 13-point lead on the Celtics.

It is likely that both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics will back out of their blockbuster National Basketball Association trade. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Cleveland has targeted Boston's #3 overall pick in the draft, Jayson Tatum, though the Celtics have remained unwilling to include the former Duke Blue Devil in any of the trade negotiations.

A Cavs source said the two sides need to reach a conclusion by Wednesday evening or mutually agree to extend the deadline.

The Cavaliers, for their part, said they were unaware of how long Thomas will be out when they made the deal.

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to review their blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics, determining the next course of action. But then they got an up close look at IT during his physical, and became very reluctant to complete the trade that will send Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics. Should the Boston Celtics surrender any additional assets to ensure Kyrie Irving winds up in Celtics' green?

The Celtics now have only three big men capable of playing center on their roster: Al Horford, Aron Baynes, and European free agent Daniel Theis.

Guam unafraid of North Korea's nuclear missile attack
The rotations also came as North Korea increasingly upped the ante in the standoff over its development of nuclear weapons. That means they sense the increasing likelihood of an armed conflict between the United States and North Korea.

Neither player may increase the Cavs' championship odds much in 2017, but when paired with a draft pick could help Cleveland land another All-Star to pair alongside James, Kevin Love and Thomas - provided he's eventually at full strength and still included in the deal.

If Cleveland isn't satisfied with its findings on Thomas, the club could scrap the trade. That is enough for the Cavaliers to take a pause on the trade.

The Cavs were rumored to ask for either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown after further examining Thomas' physical state following the season-ending hip injury he suffered last postseason playing against Cleveland.

If the deal fell apart, it could be awkward for all parties involved.

This means it's possible he may never play a game for the Cavaliers if the injury is worse than initially expected. They are now weighing their options regarding the trade for Thomas. Cleveland could be facing a bigger challenge bringing Irving, 25, back into the contentious Cavaliers situation. If the Celtics balk at the Cavaliers request, the trade is in jeopardy. The Celtics did not, and could not, hide that fact from Cleveland even if they wanted to.

The Cavaliers want to maximize Thomas' potential because he's entering the final year of the deal that he signed with the Phoenix Suns in 2014.
