Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving Interested In Being Traded To Knicks

Report: Knicks' Carmelo Anthony focused on Rockets trade amid Kyrie Irving rumors

However, it was interesting as to the four teams he wants to go.

Irving, 25, has been with the Cavaliers since they made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft.

Back in June, Chicago Sun-Times Bulls reporter Joe Cowley mentioned that Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler have a good off-the-floor relationship and that Butler could "push for a trade" to Cleveland to play with Irving and James.

"Kyrie and I had a meeting with Cavs leadership where we discussed many different scenarios in reference to Kyrie and his future with the team", Irving's agent Jeff Wechsler told Wojnarowski. The Knicks desperately need a point guard and Irving listed NY as one of his preferred destinations.

We'll see in the next few days whether or not a serious contender emerges, but if you're a fan of one of those teams it's going to be hard not to get excited.

Earlier Friday, reports emerged that Irving met with the Cleveland Cavaliers last week and asked to be traded. The Cavaliers fired David Griffin last month, shortly after the Cavs' loss to Golden State in the NBA Finals. It makes sense. A trio of Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony makes a lot more sense than James, Anthony and Kevin Love.

While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Irving said the Cavaliers are in "a peculiar place".

Irving going to San Antonio would be a game changer for the organization.

The Knicks, obviously, have strong interest in Kyrie Irving (just like 29 other teams) but I'm told people in the Knicks front office would not be willing at this point to include Kristaps Porzingis in a trade.

As Spotrac points out, Anthony is set to make $26.24 million next season, while Irving is in line to be paid $18.86 million.

If this is indeed the case, it would provide a major wrinkle to the situation that could create a much larger strain between James and Irving. Irving averaged 25 points a game for the 2016-2017 season - a record for his professional career.

This follows the pattern James has taken with the Cavaliers in recent years. However as I have been thinking about it, I think it would make flawless sense for him to play for the Knicks.
