Report: Cavs, Celtics to talk on phone regarding Irving-Thomas deal

Report: Cavs, Celtics to talk on phone regarding Irving-Thomas deal

The Cavs and Celtics aren't done talking after all.

Amid rumors that the Cavaliers are concerned about Isaiah Thomas' hip, the two sides will reportedly speak on the phone Saturday according to ESPN.

At the moment, the deal that was announced Wednesday has Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick going to Cleveland for Kyrie Irving.

But the latest development in Thomas' physical exam could reportedly cause the Cavs to ask for more compensation or possibly even void the deal altogether.

That could create a very awkward situation if Irving was forced to return to Cleveland after requesting a trade.

Kerr: Nick Young vs Pat McCaw 'hasn't crystalized at all for me'

Programming note: Warriors-Mavs coverage starts today at 4:30pm with Warriors Pregame Live on NBC Sports Bay Area.

In the Warriors' win over the Pelicans on Friday night, Pat McCaw did not get any playing time.

Nick Young was on the floor for 11 minutes.

"The way I look at Nick and Patrick -- I don't think either one has won the job, backup two," Kerr said after the game. "So I may play Pat tomorrow, I don't know. We'll figure it out.

"They're both gonna play, and there are gonna be nights where one of 'em may not get in."

On Saturday night against the Grizzlies, Young was -3 in five minutes and missed both of his 3-point attempts.

McCaw recorded two assists and a steal but he was -9 in 12 minutes.

Following shootaround on Monday in Dallas, Kerr said the following:

Sounds like this is going to be a point of discussion for the foreseeable future...

After the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies on Saturday night in Memphis, they flew to Dallas.

And on Sunday in the Lone Star State, Steph Curry enjoyed some free time on the golf course:

This is not the first time Curry has enjoyed a round of golf with Obama, as the two hit the links back in August 2015.

"My third time actually, so it's old news," Curry joked after shootaround on Monday. "We're always teammates. We're 2-1 now. Much better record than the Warriors."

What was Obama like?

"Same personality, same kind of charisma and vibe around him," Curry said. "Just maybe two or three less secret service members."

Curry and the Warriors face the Mavs on Monday night.

Seth Curry unfortunately will not suit up because of a left leg injury.
