Bovada Sportsbook Updates Odds On Kyrie Irving's Team To Begin 2017-18 Season

Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland, but the Cavaliers are still the betting favorite to be the star point guard's team when the 2017-18 season begins.

Irving reportedly prefers potential moves to the Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, or San Antonio Spurs.

Of course, without a no-trade clause in his contract, the Cavaliers are free to move Irving wherever they please.

Those four schools all appear in new odds released by Bovada, with the Knicks coming in behind the Cavaliers. There are a few other wild cards that sneak in as well.

Via ZagsBlog:

The Suns have been mentioned as a possible destination, especially considering a possible return could include Eric Bledsoe, who shares an agent with LeBron James. However, the team says it will not move the 2017 NBA Draft's No. 4 pick Josh Jackson.

The Celtics are famously stacked with assets, including potential early first round draft picks and guys like Jae Crowder and even Isaiah Thomas, who could be flipped for fellow point guard Irving. However, it seems unlikely that the Cavaliers will want to deal with their biggest Eastern Conference competitor.

Expect Irving speculation to drive discussion in the sports landscape for a while longer. Of course, as the odds indicate, there's a very good chance that the Cavaliers just hold on to him and wait for mid-season offers, or try to mend the relationship with the 25-year old superstar.
