Carmelo and Porzingis for Kyrie is really the only thing that makes sense in my opinion.

Minny should trade Wiggins back to Cleveland for Kyrie.

He's good, but I'm not ready to buckle for him.   It just highlights that the Cavs are breaking down.

 

Good.  

Unless you'd like to see someone at least stand in the way A LITTLE of GS

Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Didn't really happen on a consistent basis at all) 2. Miracle Trade (Also didn't happen. And we traded our best player for chump change) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Zubac exceeded, Ingram tried but disappointed overall)

READY FOR SEASON TO BE OVER!!!

I must admit that this is a setback for the NBA. Now the Warriors are complete favorites to win the title again.

I swear if Kyrie ends up on a western team then the NBA needs to get rid of conferences. This has become ridiculous. 30 wins will land you a playoff spot in the east at this point.

+1

 

Watch them only have 4 guys that receive any all star votes (Bron, DD, Lowry, Greek).

Cant even field a team

ESPN Sources: On Kyrie Irving front, Cavs were given four preferred landing spots: New York, Miami, San Antonio, Minnesota.

 

The fact that New York is on this list makes me think its fake.

Kyrie in San Antonio I'd love to see. 

What if Kyrie gets sent to Houston and Houston trades Chris Paul to the Cavs? :D

But wow if Kyrie winds up on the Heat.. does he get a concert too? :P

So of those listed I really don't see which one could trade for Kyrie without having to give up a major player. Miami would have to trade whiteside, Minny would have to trade wiggins, NY would have to trade KP, and Idk who spurs would even trade tbh. Knicks might do it but others I doubt it.

LMFAO...

 

Ain't no one valuing DeAndre Jordan that highly... A one-dimensional Center isn't exactly the type of player you want to acquire and place next to Lebron...

This makes sense to me...

Knicks are a troubled franchise so I can see them swinging for this...

 

Cavaliers Acquire:
Carmelo Anthony

Kristaps Porzingis

 

(Incentive: The floor would be spaced for Lebron to operate.  Melo, Love, and Porzingis would be ridiculous.)

 

Knicks Acquire:

Kyrie Irving

Tristan Thompson

 

(Incentive: The Knicks can finally move on from the Melo era and acquire a franchise player in Kyrie.  Porzingis is a solid piece, but I think you can let him go if it means acquiring Kyrie)

 

Cavaliers go out and sign Derrick Rose and offer him that starting spot.

 

Cavaliers Lineup

Derrick Rose / Jose Calderon

Lebron James / Iman Shumpert

Carmelo Anthony / Kyle Korver

Kevin Love / Jeff Green

Kristaps Porinzgis / Channing Frye

 

Highly unlikely but that's an interesting lineup if you ask me.

Heres another thing, what do the cavs want in return. Usually when teams trade a superstar away its to acquire picks and young players. Lebron won't want that.

Sensible blockbuster trade. But bro, you're willing to trade Kristaps for Kyrie but not Ball or Ingram lol.

I'm not willing... the Knicks may be though.

 

The Knicks are in a much different position than the Lakers.  They're probably one of the most misguided, troubled, and poorly ran organization in all of basketball.

So Kyrie doesn't wanna play with Bron anymore and you guys want him? I love his game too, but not over LeBron. It has to be one of the other apparently so I'd rather go after LeBron than he. Yes, Kyrie is much younger, but LeBron is obviously about the surest thing there is when it comes to winning at max.

There are better teams in the West than Cleveland, as currenlty constructed.
