Kyrie Irving    G  Cavaliers

 

 

The Celtics have expressed interest in Kyrie Irving but have not yet made a formal offer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Cavs are determined to get back a young, promising player in any potential Irving trade, as they are unsure if LeBron James will re-sign next summer. The Celtic they are reportedly keen on is Jayson Tatum. Boston certainly has the assets to make a very tempting offer, but the fact that the two teams are likely to meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals complicates the situation. Wojnarowski believes the Cavs may wait until September before engaging in "aggressive conversations."

Kyrie Irving went "consecutive days without speaking to teammates at practice" between the first and second round of the NBA playoffs last year, James Jones told ESPN's Dave McMenamin. It's certainly possible he was just not talking to his teammates because he was locked in on winning games, but it's peculiar for the team's point guard. McMenamin added that Irving wasn't happy about a week before the July 21 report saying he requested a trade, and that Irving is just looking for a different situation. This story won't be going away any time soon.

Kyrie Irving reportedly is not interested in signing an extension with any team at this point. Irving wants out of Cleveland, but with two years left on his contract, he's not willing to sign a long-term deal with whoever trades for him. The Suns still look like the team that will be able to offer the Cavs the most enticing trade package for Irving, but their unwillingness to include Josh Jackson in any deal for Uncle Drew has been a stumbling block in trade talks thus far.

Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer said the Cavaliers have named their price for Kyrie Irving. Per Vardon, the Cavaliers want a veteran starter, a blue chipper on a rookie contract and a first-round pick for the superstar PG. Vardon adds that the Cavs are "working diligently to make Irving happy" and that they intend to grant his trade request. One possible destination is Phoenix with the Suns offering Eric Bledsoe and a 2018 first-round pick (via Miami), but they are not willing to include Josh Jackson which is a major roadblock for this potential trade.

Seven teams have submitted trade offers to Cleveland for Kyrie Irving, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Since word leaked that Irving wanted out of Cleveland, approximately 20 teams have contacted the Cavs to inquire about what it would take to land Kyrie. Wojnarowski only provides details about one of the proposed trades, and that's Miami willing to offer a package centered around Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow. Cavs new GM Koby Altman is apparently looking to land a haul similar to what the Nuggets got for Carmelo Anthony back in 2011: "young players, win-now veterans and draft picks."

According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, the Cavaliers have unsuccessfully tried to contract Kyrie Irving since his trade request. Lloyd adds that Irving isn't talking to anyone from the organization. New general manager Koby Altman called the situation "fluid" at Wednesday's press conference, but it sure sounds like Irving is heading out the door. He's under contract for the next two seasons with a player option for the third, so expect the Cavs to hold out for the best possible package in return.

When asked if the Cavs intended to trade Kyrie Irving, new general manager Koby Altman called the situation "fluid" and that the team has been in touch with Irving's representation. Owner Dan Gilbert said it wasn't appropriate to discuss the details of the team's meeting with Irving, but he does expect the All-Star guard to be at camp. Gilbert also addressed the narrative of the Cavs having a tough offseason. "This thing is not broken," Gilbert said. When Altman was asked if Kyrie and LeBron James could co-exist, he talked a lot about the past, and said some reports of animosity between them have been "overblown" recently. Basically, the Cavs aren't going to be able to ignore this elephant in the room and the Kyrie trade talk won't be going away any time soon.

Cleveland management reportedly views a Kyrie Irving trade as "almost inevitable," as they're not confident in their ability to salvage the relationship. The Cavs are reportedly looking for a "king's ransom" in return for Irving and they're placing a high premium on bringing in a "blue-chip young player," according to sources of Zach Lowe of ESPN. Phoenix has surfaced as one of the more intriguing potential landing spots for Irving, but that deal would likely hinge on the Suns' willingness to part ways with Josh Jackson, whom they're reportedly enamored with. Boston has also reached out to Cleveland, but Lowe notes that it's unlikely we'll see the top-2 teams out East strike a deal this summer.
