Just when the NBA Offseason was grinding to a halt, a giant bombshell hits us all. It has now been confirmed that Kyrie Irving asked for a trade in a meeting with the Cavs last week. According to sources, Kyrie no longer wants to play alongside LeBron James and seeks to become the focal point of a new team.
But Kyrie doesn't just want to go to any random squad. He has a specific team in mind, which has just been revealed to the public via ESPN NBA reporters Brian Windhorst and Chris Haynes. San Antonio. That's one of the teams Kyrie wishes to play for, and there's a good chance they get him. An offer of Murray, Green, and Aldridge for Kyrie and an additional player.
With Irving and Kawhi, the Spurs would easily become the Warriors' biggest threat out West. They'd be a formidable force for years to come.
This news is still young, but already the pursuit has begun. When one of the best point guards suddenly becomes available, it's always a good idea to try your luck. The Spurs intend to be one of those teams.
