Brian Windhorst On Kyrie Irving Saga: "I Don't Think Cavs Have A Deal They Like"

Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland, but the Cavaliers may not have a deal they like enough to move him.

Trades involving teams like the Heat, Knicks, Suns, Timberwolves, and many others have been floated since news broke that Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cavs.

Of course, Irving isn't one of the lucky few players in the NBA with a no-trade cause. That, and the two years remaining on his contract, make him a valuable trade asset for the Cavs, and not one that the team feels it needs to give up lightly.

While he still may get moved, ESPN's Brian Windhorst told ESPN 850 WKNR in Cleveland that he doesn't believe the team has a deal it is comfortable with.

Of course, if Irving does start the season with Cleveland, it could be awkward for the franchise, considering the potential animosity between he and LeBron James.

The Cavaliers could be looking for guys like Devin Booker or Andrew Wiggins, budding NBA stars, and picks for Irving, one of the NBA's most dynamic and clutch scorers. If not, the Cavs will be an even more interesting team to watch to start the year, and the trade deadline could have some serious added intrigue.
