Kyrie Irving Wants A Trade To The Knicks 'Very Badly'

Kyrie Irving Wants A Trade To The Knicks 'Very Badly'

Any trade the Cavaliers do would have to include a point guard going to Cleveland.

That's the four teams that Irving reportedly asked to be dealt to, along with the Clippers and the Suns.

Another obstacle in the "Irving to the Knicks" plan is that the Cavaliers still have final say over the matter.

If Irving's desired endgame for his reported trade request is to eventually become a New York Knick, there is a fairly decent chance that he may not get what he ultimately wants.

Irving is only 25 and he is already one of the best players in the league.

Even though they didn't make Irving's wish list, the Suns' interest is logical. Carmelo Anthony would gladly play alongside LeBron James.




"Go back through every team he's played on, talked to people involved - or just study the results - and it doesn't matter whether it was high school, college, U.S. development and national teams, and in the NBA - and you see a pattern of him impacting winning".

The NBA world has been focused on the Cleveland Cavaliers for the past week following Kyrie Irving's trade request, but there's more going on than just Irving's unhappiness.

A month removed from the NBA Finals, the Cavs have changed GMs and could be on the verge of trading their All-Star point guard.

James has been too good and there is too much talent on the Cavaliers to assume their immediate downfall. With the draft's top pick, Cleveland selects Irving, who average 17.5 points and 4.3 assists in 11 games at Duke in the lone season of his college career. Butler and George are demonstrably better players, but they aren't almost as big of stars. This is the pick the Suns acquired from the Miami Heat a few years ago and taking into account how weak the East is, the Heat will most likely make the playoffs, which means the Cavaliers would not get a lottery pick. He's been showing why he's the No. 1 pick in the draft.

In the same article, Irving was asked about taking over as the Cavs" new franchise player and stated: "I wasn't really anxious about filling LeBron's shoes or filling that void.

The other nugget of information that Lloyd offers there is that Irving isn't in contact with the team right now.
