Cavs 'Would Love' To Acquire Devin Booker In Kyrie Irving Trade

It has been a while now since current Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving sent shockwaves through the National Basketball Association after a reported trade request from him was made public. Just about every team in the league would have a hard time assembling a championship-caliber core around Irving within just two years, so there is a chance that he may leave town before the franchise that trades for him can even contend seriously.

He is putting the Cavaliers in a really hard position for three reasons outside of losing their All-Star point guard. While it seemed unlikely for him to go back, he still has yet to be traded, and talks have seemed to stall out on a few fronts.

At the moment, the most likely option looks to be that there will be a three-team trade between the Cavaliers, the Nuggets, and the Phoenix Suns, but whether that will even happen remains to be seen. All of those things can only work to make this situation more complicated and they could also mean that Irving is not going to be traded for a while. In exchange for a star player they got multiple useful players, and promptly won 57 games in the first full, non-lockout shortened season without Anthony.

It appears the Suns are holding firm that they won't include rookie Josh Jackson in any deal to bring the suddenly disgruntled Irving to into the fold, according to myriad reports.

Irving is now unwilling to commit to any team at the moment, as he has two seasons left on his contract and would like to keep his options open.

While teams start out demanding the farm for superstars, they rarely get what they're asking for. But Irving felt the time had come to take his destiny into his own hands.

Looking at the scope of the way teams have played free agency, Irving may have been better off staying in the "shadow" of James for another year to find a team on a one-year rental deal, like George and the Thunder.
