Tired Of Secondary Role Cavs’ Kyrie Irving Requests Trade

by admin on Friday, July 21st, 2017

KYRIE IRVING CAVALIERS NBA 2017Problems continue to mount for the Cleveland Cavaliers after losing in the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors.

Now Kyrie Irving reportedly told his agent that he would like to leave the Ohio franchise. This was reported by journalist Brian Windhorst (ESPN), noting that the point guard wants to be in a team where he can be a more relevant player.

Irving has played his entire NBA career in Cleveland, but he no longer wants a secondary role playing alongside LeBron James and wants an opportunity to play for a team where he can be the franchise player.

According to Windhorst’s report LeBron James is perplexed and disappointed after learning of Irving’s intentions as he had no idea Irving was unhappy with his role or wanted out of Cleveland.

Irving was the first pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. At the end of the 2011-2012 season, he was named Rookie of the Year and averaged 21.6 points, 5.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds in his six seasons.

Jeff Wechsler, Irving’s agent, told Wojnarowski that they had met with the Cavs’ leadership and talked about different scenarios regarding Irving’s future with the team.

Adrian Wojnarowski anticipates that the favorite destination for Irving would be the San Antonio Spurs.

The New York Knicks, Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves would also be interested in the four-time All-Star (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017).

If Irving decides to play for coach Gregg Popovich, the Spurs would pack quite a punch. He would definitely help the Spurs contend for a new title along Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili, LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills, Tony Parker, Rudy Gay and Kawhi Leonard.

As a result of this trade request the Cleveland Cavaliers will be meeting next week with free agent point guard Derrick Rose to possibly find a short-term solution to the vacancy that his departure would create. The Los Angeles Lakers are also showing interest in the 28-year-old guard.
