The Irving cover was already featured on the game’s website:
In exchange, the Celtics sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Nets’ 2018 first-round pick to the Cavs.
With the game available by preorder September 15, it wasn’t immediately clear which jersey Irving will be wearing on the cover in less than a month.
