交易评级

Wow. Long live the NBA offseason! The summer of blockbusters continued Tuesday, as the Cavaliers traded star guard Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Nets’ 2018 unprotected first-round pick, according to multiple reports.

哇哦。NBA休赛期万岁!夏季大片在周二继续上映——官方消息,骑士队送出全明星后卫凯里-欧文,从凯尔特人得到了以赛亚-托马斯、杰-克劳德、安特-日日奇和2018年的篮网首轮无保护选秀权。

The deal comes in the wake of Irving’s trade request earlier this summer. Thomas ended the playoffs unable to finish the conference finals against the Cavs due to injury, but is coming off the best season of his career. Let’s grade the deal from both sides.

这笔交易为今夏早些时候欧文的交易请求画上了句号。由于伤病,小托马斯没有打完和骑士的分区决赛就提前结束了季后赛之旅,但他依然打出了职业生涯最好的赛季。让我们分别为交易双方打个分。

CAVALIERS: A+

骑士队:A+

Cavaliers acquire: Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, Nets' 2018 unprotected first

骑士队得到:以赛亚-托马斯、杰-克劳德、安特-日日奇和2018年的篮网首轮无保护选秀权

Cleveland was in a difficult position after Irving’s trade request. The draft had already occurred, and teams were unable to trade free agents they signed in early July. But somehow, the Cavs are coming out of their deal with Boston with both short-term and long-term benefits.

在欧文请求交易以后,骑士队所处的环境危机四伏。选秀已经结束了,而各支球队也不能交易他们在七月初刚签下的自由球员。但无论如何,骑士与凯尔特人的交易兼顾了自己的长期和短期利益。

For next season—which could be LeBron’s last in Cleveland—the Cavs will still be very competitive. Thomas is a downgrade from Irving, but he’s still a tough scorer coming off a borderline MVP campaign who should be able to fill up the bucket alongside LeBron. Crowder is a great pickup for Cleveland.

下赛季——也可能是勒布朗在克利夫兰的最后一个赛季——骑士队依然能够非常有竞争力。小托马斯比起欧文稍逊一筹,但他依然是一个很厉害的得分手,是MVP竞争的边缘人物,他应该能够在勒布朗身边承担起得分重任。

The Cavs desperately needed a dependable three-point shooter who could also defend in the Finals, and Crowder fits that description perfectly. He’s on a cheap contract, and he will make the Cavs’ small-ball lineups much more palatable next season.

克劳德对骑士来说是绝佳补充。骑士队极度需要一个能在总决赛进行防守的可靠三分投手,而克劳德完美满足这点。他拿着廉价合同,并且下赛季,他能让骑士队的小球阵容更加美妙。

The real coup here is the Nets pick. Boston has so far been extremely reluctant to part with the assets they received from Brooklyn in 2013. Now, Cleveland owns what should be a very valuable lottery selection in next year’s draft.

真正的妙笔点睛是篮网的首轮签。到目前为止,凯尔特人一直非常不愿意放弃他们2013年从篮网交易来的资产。现在,骑士队拥有了一个可能在下一年的选秀中非常有价值的乐透签。

If LeBron leaves, the Cavs can kickstart their rebuild right away with a good pick. If LeBron stays, Cleveland has an asset that can be flipped for another star, or add some much-needed youth to the roster.

如果勒布朗离开了,骑士队能立刻用一个好签开始重建。如果勒布朗留下,骑士队能再用它换来一个球星,或者为球队阵容增加一些急需的年轻人才。

Thomas is in the final year of his contract, which means Cleveland will be in the tough position to decide whether to give him a max deal next summer. Still, the Cavs will have options, and many decisions will hinge on LeBron’s future first. Thomas’s contract status is not insignificant, but it’s an issue that won’t necessarily be very difficult to resolve.

小托马斯处于他合同期的最后一年,这意味着骑士队将面临是否要在明年夏天给他顶薪的艰难抉择。尽管如此,骑士队依然有着选择权,而许多决定将首先取决于勒布朗的未来。托马斯的合同状态绝非无足轻重,但这并不是一个非常难解决的问题。

Ultimately, the Cavs are still going to have issues on defense at point guard, but they haven’t gravely affected their short-term outlook while significantly brightening their long-term one.

最后,骑士队依然面临着控卫位置上的防守问题,但他们并没有在使其长期前景豁然开朗的同时,严重影响到他们的短期前景。

CELTICS: B

凯尔特人:B

Celtics acquire: Kyrie Irving

凯尔特人得到:凯里-欧文

After years of hesitation and false starts, Boston finally gave away a Nets draft pick, and it feels slightly underwhelming. Irving is a great scorer who is also young with a better contract status than Thomas moving forward.

在多年的犹豫和错误的开头以后,凯尔特人终于放弃了一个篮网选秀权,而这笔交易感觉有点寻常。欧文是一个非常好的得分手,很年轻,并且有着比小托马斯接下来更好的合同状况。

But he has serious deficiencies as a defender, and he was never able to lift Cleveland to respectable heights without James. After the various deals the Celtics went halfway in on, coming away with Irving for arguably their best asset leaves a little to be desired.

但他在防守端有着严重缺陷,且在没有詹姆斯的情况下,他从未能够把骑士提升到一个让人信服的高度。凯尔特人中途放弃了多笔交易,但最终用他们也许是最优质的资产换来了欧文,这给人留下的期待值不多。

But the deal is far from a failure for Boston. Irving is an upgrade over Thomas, his deal runs through next season, and his age is better aligned with Boston’s core. The Celtics also did well to hold on to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, two promising forwards who can be valuable contributors—and who also leave the door open for future trades.

但这对凯尔特人来说远不是一笔失败的交易。相比小托马斯,欧文更胜一筹,他的合同将在下赛季以后才结束,并且他的年龄和凯尔特人的核心更为匹配。凯尔特人也很好地留住了杰森-塔特姆和杰伦-布朗这两位有前途的前锋,他们能够成为有价值的贡献者——也为未来的交易留下了一扇打开的门。

It’s a good trade for the Celtics, but not necessarily a great one. It pushes them slightly closer to a Finals berth, which is an interesting push considering the team seemed intent on waiting out LeBron a few months ago. But with James’s future in the East in question, Boston is looking at a potentially wide-open conference in the near future with a talented young core that still has some flexibility for more moves.

对凯尔特人来说这是一笔好交易,但未必是绝佳的。这笔交易推动他们略微更靠近总决赛的席位,考虑到这支球队几个月前还一心想要等待勒布朗离开,这次推动显得有趣。但由于詹姆斯在东部的未来成疑,对于有着优质年轻核心的凯尔特人来说,未来有着无限可能。并且,他们仍然保留了操作的灵活性。

NBA WATCHERS: A++

吃瓜群众:A++

The best part of this deal? We won’t have to wait long to see how it plays out on the court. The first game of the NBA season is—you guessed it—Celtics at Cavaliers. See you on Oct. 17.

这笔交易最好的部分?我们不需要等太久就能看到它在场上的效果。NBA新赛季的揭幕战是——你猜到了——凯尔特人大战骑士。10月18日见。
