Kyrie Irving Was 'Upset' Cavaliers Tried to Trade Him to Pacers, Bulls

Kyrie Irving Was 'Upset' Cavaliers Tried to Trade Him to Pacers, Bulls

The Cavs' situation could be the best fit for Rose, 28, who is coming off his best season in five years.

But that hasn't stopped fans of the video game National Basketball Association 2K18 from fantasizing about Irving playing for another team.

Irving's request for a trade has put the franchise in a distressing position considering it has gone to three straight NBA Finals and has captured one title in that span. But Irving has yet to prove that he can be the No. 1 option on a winning team.

However, Winslow is coming off a shoulder surgery, and his shooting could be a concern for a team seeking to win now, especially for a LeBron James-led team that needs optimum spacing.

There's always additional facts about stories that don't immediately come to light, and the story of Kyrie Irving looking to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers just added another layer of interest.

Now, with Irving trying to jump ship, the Cavs' brass has upset James. Now that Derrick is interested, they might push for Irving's trade to acquire the free agent.

Irving's defense could be an issue contributing to these struggles.

The last three seasons might be misleading, because Irving wasn't asked to be a playmaker, but mostly a scorer, which he did quite well.

By comparison, Dragic held players to 44.4 percent shooting from the field and Heat shooting guard Dion Waiters limited players to 40.4 percent shooting last season. Though, given his full no-trade clause, he could basically control his destination, it appears he wants to stick it out in Cleveland a little longer and see if the Cavs have another run in them.

As the report notes, Irving also possesses something many stars yearn for - a championship ring. But all of these numbers raise some questions regarding his all-around game. Back in 2015, Irving told Cleveland.com that Bryant was the first person he called when he sustained an injury in the Eastern Conference playoffs. To prove that he can be the best player on an elite team.
