Not sure I believe it . the part about Lebron not being given the straight.
But I guess it wouldn't surprise me this entire scenario has more to do with why Lebron left than Irving actually being gone, I mean if he is was being told one thing and 15 min later the exact opposite happens, it proves Gilbert was holding the threat of trading Irving over Lebron trying to get him to commit long term and when he still refused to do so, Gilbert gave Irving what he wanted buying into a lottery pick as the best case scenario return knowing without Lebrons commitment when Gilbert needed it the most he was gone anyway.
If Ainge had yet to put the Brooklyn pick on the table, and the next best offer was meh, I could see Gilbert grabbing it while it was there.
I don't ...I mean they made a fuss over the miami 2nd . picks were Gilberts main interest for Irving and the Nets pick was the highest offer.
