NBA Rumors: Kyrie Irving To Be Traded Before 2015 NBA Trade Deadline?

One of the most promising young players in the NBA today could be on the move before the NBA trade deadline in 2015. Up-and-coming point guard Kyrie Irving has stated publicly that he wants to stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that may be far from the actual truth according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst:

And while Irving has said all the right things about staying put in public, it’s no secret that Irving’s camp has been making it known for years now the point guard would like to be elsewhere long term. No matter how much he denies it.

On July 1, the Cavs will make a final pitch to Irving in order to lock him up for the foreseeable future. Cleveland will attempt to sign Irving to a lucrative long-term deal, but may struggle to do so and therefore be forced to trade him before the 2015 NBA trade deadline according to Windhorst:

The Cleveland Cavaliers will offer Irving a maximum contract extension once they’re allowed to on July 1, and if he hasn’t signed it by October, the team will likely be forced to trade him before the Oct. 31 deadline for third-year players to extend their contracts.

With the Cavs seemingly going nowhere with Irving leading the way, Cleveland trading the reigning All-Star MVP elsewhere may not be as farfetched as once thought. If he wants out of Cleveland, there’s no point in begging him to stay like the Cavs did with LeBron James a few years back.

As a result of Irving potentially being on his way out, a possible destination is with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Recently, Irving was linked to the Lakers with talk of the young point guard desiring to land in Los Angeles if he did leave Cleveland.

At this point in time, it may be a stretch to say that Irving is destined to become a Lakers, but if he’s on his way out and has expressed an interest in wearing the purple and gold, it may be realistic possibility.

  • lakers_824

    Kyrie (10-16 mill)
    Kobe
    Melo (Paycut 16mill) OR sign Nick Young and get Kevin Love year after
    Pau (Paycut 8mill)
    Embiid (3-5mill)

      Lmao.. I’ll run through walmart butt a$$ naked if that happen.

    All the Lakers have to do is lose more games so they have a chance to draft Joel Embiid to play the center spot. Now, let injury prone Nash and Pau walk. You have 28 millions of cap space. You offer Kyrie Irving what Nash is getting 9 millions a season. In 2015, try to sign Kevin Love if not you can wait till 2016 when Kobe leaves, go after Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis. You will have a cap space of 24 millions from Kobe and Pau 19 millions. A total of 43 millions. The Lakers can a tender of 20 millions for Durant and 10 millions for Davis. In 2016, the starting lineup should be Joel Embiid at center, Anthony Davis at power forward, Kevin Durant at small forward, sign a free agent to play shooting guard, Kyrie Irving for point guard.

    Just tired of the every looming superstar FA on the Laker rumor mil. Of course they’re all possibilities but LN thirst meter is on defcon 5. Not a good look.

  • Marty Susman

    Irving would be a GREAT point for the Lakers…If they are unable to get the Ausi in the draft, then maybe send the Cav’s Farmar & Henry.

    • kobe24

      Honestly I’m more open to the Aussie kid + Kevin Love…

      Exum + Love could be a great one two punch however id would be even better to get Exum at the two spot with irving being the floor manager

  • Kay Carter

    Starters: Kyrie
    Kobe
    Deng
