Kyrie Irving requesting trade out of Cleveland to find bigger role

Kyrie Irving is ready to end his run with the Cleveland Cavaliers, as league sources told ESPN that the guard has asked the team to trade him.

The request came last week and was made to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Irving has expressed that he wants to play in a situation where he can be more of a focal point and that he no longer wants to play alongside LeBron James, sources said.

Among several possibilities discussed in Irving's meeting with the Cavaliers, the San Antonio Spurs were raised as a preferred destination, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Other teams Irving said he'd be willing to join were the New York Knicks, Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources told ESPN. Irving also considered the Chicago Bulls before the club traded Jimmy Butler, league sources told ESPN's Ian Begley.

I agree, maybe Irving is better than IT, but the difference between them isn't big enough to make any drastic changes, the C's problem this year will be the same as last year, rebounding. Just the fact that there's so much turmoil in Cleveland helps the Celtics.
It's not the kill, It's the thrill of the chase

I'd love for the Knicks to get him, but it probably wouldnt be long until he realized how bad management is and would want out

You would think, now is the perfect time to capitalize. But him and IT most likely can't play together and that would be the worst defensive backcourt in the NBA
