Report: Kyrie Was Included In Trade Talks For Butler, George

Cleveland was reportedly considering moving him for one of the All-Star forwards available.

Kyrie Irving wants to be traded.

According to a report by ESPN, though, the Cavs' point guard was upset that Cleveland thought about trading him earlier in the summer.

A new story by ESPN says that Irving was frustrated when he learned that the Cavs included him in trade talks for Paul George and Jimmy Butler, two All-Star forwards who were available and ended up getting moved to Oklahoma City and Minnesota, respectively.

From ESPN:

Some of these talks included Irving, which upset him even more when he found out about it, sources said. Previously, Griffin had worked to keep lines of communication with Irving open, but now Irving was in the dark.

Irving now wants to be traded to New York, Minnesota, Miami or San Antonio, according to reports.

It's been a wild summer in the NBA.
