Would this trade be possible?
The Cleveland Cavaliers will most-likely trade Kyrie Irving at some point during the 2017-18 season.
A month after news leaked stating Kyrie met with the Cavs and asked for a trade, many trade rumors have been thrown around, but Irving has remained in Cleveland.
On Tuesday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, detailed the trade possibilities for Kyrie.
Trade talks for Kyrie have been complicated by the fact that Kyrie reportedly said he’s not willing to agree to a long-term deal after being traded to his new team.
However, according to Wojnarowski, Kyrie would sign a long-term deal with the San Antonio Spurs.
From his report:
The Spurs have interest in Irving, league sources say, and Irving’s willingness to commit to an extension with the Spurs makes for legitimate win-now deal possibilities for Cleveland.
A trade with the Spurs is unlikely, unless the Cavs can guarantee LeBron James won’t leave after the 2017-18 season. James is likely headed elsewhere, meaning a trade between the Cavs and Spurs won’t happen.
Trade talks should increase as we enter September, so it will be interesting to see who emerges in the fight for Kyrie.
