Report: Kyrie Irving Making It Known He Would Leave Cleveland If LeBron Leaves

The Cavs' star would be interested in leaving the team if LeBron does.

LeBron James reportedly isn't the only Cavs' star who is considering leaving the franchise in 2018.

Kyrie Irving is reportedly making it known that he'd be willing to leave Cleveland if James does next summer.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Irving has been contacting his Team USA teammates to let them know he might push for a trade next summer if James ends up leaving Cleveland for Los Angeles or somewhere else.

All-Star Kyrie Irving has been contacting some of his former Team USA teammates and letting them know that he might be willing to push for a trade, especially if he feels the Cavs’ run could end quickly with James able to opt out after next season.

Through back channels, Chicago would be one of the places that Irving would be interested to play.

Bulls' star Jimmy Butler is reportedly pushing for a trade to Cleveland to team up with Irving and James. If that happens, it's tough to see Irving leaving next summer. He'd certainly receive a lot of interest from other teams if he is put on the trading block, though.
