20 Teams Including Spurs, Clippers, & Knicks Have Made Trade Offers To Cleveland For Kyrie Irving
If the Cleveland Cavaliers truly are trying to unload their star point guard to another team for various assets, there are a boatload of teams willing to take him right now.
Approximately 20 teams have inquired about Kyrie Irving, asking the Cavs what it would take for them to get him on their team, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
“So far, these are among the teams who’ve made offers to the Cavaliers for Irving, league sources tell ESPN: The San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Phoenix Suns, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks and Miami Heat. There were approximately 20 teams that inquired with Cleveland upon the news of Irving’s trade request, league sources said.
While many have inquired, Woj reported not many have the assets to make a real offer, and fewer have registered legitimate proposals. The Cavs are also looking for a trade package that resembles the 2011 Denver Nuggets-New York Knicks deal for Carmelo Anthony—young players, win-now veterans and draft picks.
The all-star point guard averaged 25.2 points, 5.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals on 47.3 percent shooting in 72 games for the Cavaliers this past season.
