This is a more than fair return for Irving. I don't even think Charlotte would do it, since the upgrade of Kemba to Kyrie isn't very much.
But the answer to the question "Does this make the Celtics better" is a big, resounding, no. The problem with this Celtics team everyone talks about is that there are too many players who need minutes. Trading one of your best players for a slight downgrade in talent at PG and a couple of players who will never see the floor in this rotation makes the team worse.
