NBA Rumors: Cavaliers have no plans to trade Kyrie Irving


The Cleveland Cavaliers are a disaster right now to say the least. Yes, they’ve planned relatively well since firing former general manager Chris Grant, but the collection of talent amassed simply isn’t going to work.

Knowing this, the Cavs have all but suggested they will be players come the NBA’s trade deadline, but they will not be entertaining offers for Kyrie Irving. That’s the word from Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders who (responding to a fans question) says the Cavaliers aren’t remotely interested in any deal involving the former Duke star.

If CLE decides to deal Kyrie, —> not anything they are remotely interested in considering.

While Cleveland has plenty of problems, Irving isn’t one of them – despite his desire to sometimes pound the air out of the ball.

There simply isn’t anything out there which would make the Cavaliers better in the short term or long term that would involve Irving.

Cleveland should have success moving some of their other players though like Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao, if they so incline.

    I really doubt the Cavs would trade Irving. He is their best player.
    Without him they have a very slim chance of signing another top free agent next year.
    They need to build a team around somebody. Right now he is their only hope.
