Kyrie Irving seeks trade, doesn't want a "Robin" role, LeBron James reaction?

Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics- Game Five

Wojnarowski said sources told him one of the preferred destinations for Irving is the San Antonio Spurs.

LeBron James was reportedly "blindsided and disappointed" by Kyrie's request, according to Windhorst.

The Knicks have been working for several weeks to trade Carmelo Anthony, who is nearly assured to be gone from NY before the start of the next season, as his relationship with management has deteriorated.

That can't be good news for the Dallas Mavericks, a longtime Spurs rival and the rest of the teams in the NBA Western Conference trying to move up in the West pecking order sometime in the future. James and Irving have formed a dynamic partnership over the past three years, with both players elevating their games in the 2016 Finals to overcome a 3-1 deficit to beat the Golden State Warriors. In addition, the point guard's desire to escape the looming shadow of James is serving as the key reason for the reported decision.

The Heat would likely have to include Goran Dragic or Hassan Whiteside in any trade for Irving. Brooks was the Pac-12 player of the year.

The Spurs have been the most successful National Basketball Association team over the past two decades.

If the trade were to go through, it would put the game in the peculiar position of depicting its cover star playing for his old team. When Gregg Popovich has a talented team, he knows exactly what to do with it. They acquired Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford.

Basically, Irving wants to be the center of attention somewhere, which is perfectly fine - he is a superstar who wants the opportunity to prove this on his own team. Suppose James were to leave next summer-and right now he doesn't have many reasons to stay-Irving would be left on a team devoid of assets and tied up in salary cap knots. is one of the offshore books that has taken its Cavaliers future odds down, but they have replaced it with some prop bets on where Irving will play next season.
