Irving asks Cavs for trade

2017 NBA Finals- Game Five

2017 NBA Finals- Game Five

This is also known as the "we believe LeBron leaves next summer so let's just be proactive and get all we can" plan.

The Cavs didn't make the playoffs in his first three seasons, but since James returned in July 2014 they have made three straight NBA Finals appearances and won one title.

On Friday, Kyrie Irving's request to be traded from Cleveland in a meeting with owner Dan Gilbert last week became public, and suddenly, an already tumultuous summer for the Cavaliers now appears it might alter the National Basketball Association landscape for the 2017-18 season and beyond.

In 2015, the Nuggets traded Timofey Mozgov, along with a 2015 second-round pick, to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for two protected 2015 first-round picks. And while Irving has had to play off of James for much of that time, he seemed to have found a comfort zone in doing so, saying frequently how much he'd learned about winning and improved team chemistry with James in the locker room.

The Heat would make also make sense in this category because Miami is a big market, but the trade would be a great fit for both teams if the Heat would accept a trade involving Irving in exchange for giving the Cavs Goran Dragic, Justise Winslow, and Tyler Johnson. However, he did average 18 points per game last season, and has drawn interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves among other teams.

The Nuggets and Cavs have some previous trade history.

Rose was thought to be a potential backup, but now it appears he could be needed to start if the Cavs and Irving are indeed breaking up.

While he will still be making upwards of $20 million dollars a season on average, that number is substantially smaller than the $30-plus million averages in the recent contracts of fellow stars Paul Millsap (who signed with Denver as free agent this offseason), Stephen Curry, and James Harden. The Knicks benefit because they get a young offensive stud in Irving to pair with an even younger stud in Porzingis. One thing Rose brings to the Cavaliers or any team that takes him is the ability to create. The Cavs lost to the Warriors in five games in 2017 and in six in 2015, when Irving suffered a season-ending knee injury in Game 1.

He discussed the challenge during last month's NBA Finals. "Selfishly, I always wanted to just show everyone in the whole entire world exactly who I was every single time". Last season, he shot 22 percent.
