Kyrie Irving wants to be traded to the Spurs

Kyrie Irving walks off the court after the Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals

Irving declined to tell Sports Illustrated he was actually in the process of piecing together a list of potential trade destinations.

Last season, Irving, the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, averaged 25.2 points and 5.5 assists per game.

That demand reportedly happened last week and LeBron knew about it, and as he went through shock and disappointment, he allegedly leaked that info that surfaced on Friday of the trade request, according to Stephen A. Smith. "We are respectfully going to keep those private".

SI's Maggie Gray asked Irving, "How different could the Cavaliers team look in just a couple years" considering the latest rumors regarding LeBron James' leaving to join the Los Angeles Lakers after his contract is up in 2018. Should Cleveland be forced to trade Irving, it would pretty much be a boon for the Warriors - dependent, of course, on where Irving ends up.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski at ESPN, Kyrie Irving wants to be traded to the San Antonio Spurs. The Knicks have not had a great point guard since Stephon Marbury (some may argue that with Chris Duhon).




As the Knicks search for ways to ship Carmelo Anthony to either the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Houston Rockets, an attractive possibility has emerged.

It appears that not every National Basketball Association player wants to play alongside LeBron James, the best player of this generation. Meanwhile, Kyrie Irving would get one of his wishes (courtesy of CBS New York), which is to play for the Knicks.

Irving, 25, signed a five-year deal worth $90 million in July 2014 and is due $60 million over the next three seasons. While the idea of Irving and Kristaps Porzingis could turn the Knicks around, betting against big-time Knicks success is a smart play for Cleveland. However, if the reported three-way trade takes place with the Cavaliers, Bledsoe would be Cleveland-bound.

James has reportedly voiced concern about the team's future, fuelling speculation that he might leave his hometown club a second time.
