REPORT: LeBron James Is Trying To Get Kyrie Irving Traded To The Phoenix Suns
Within days of the shocking news that Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland, it was reported that LeBron James would let the front office deal with this as he was busy with his usual offseason workouts like last year.
Things quickly changed when former teammate James Jones became the vice president of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns. A light bulb went off for LeBron and he reportedly took the initiative of trying to get Kyrie traded to the Suns, as they have a bevy of young talent he would love to play alongside.
“LeBron James is doing some LeBron James offseason work. And my understanding is it’s not just Derrick Rose, it’s not just Eric Bledsoe. LeBron James happens to know a guy named James Jones . . . LeBron James is hustling behind the scenes, is my understanding, asking ‘Is Josh Jackson available for Kyrie Irving?’ And the answer back that I heard is ‘no, he is not.’ But LeBron James is hustling on behalf of the Cleveland Cavaliers, at least for this one year.”
