Spurs on Kyrie Irving's short list of trade destinations, reports say

Although, any team with an open point guard position will likely pursue Irving.

Overall, it's hard to argue that a trade which included Anthony and multiple first-round picks wouldn't be enticing for the Cavaliers.

Irving's agent, Jeff Wechsler, did not specifically confirm a trade request in comments to Cleveland.com.

During the meeting, Irving reportedly talked about the San Antonio Spurs as a preferred destination, but he's willing to join the Minnesota Timberwolves, Miami Heat and New York Knicks as well.

The kid with the insane handles rocked the Rock "N Roll Hall of Fame capital when he asked the Cavs" front office to trade him out of Cleveland.

The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly knew before the NBA Draft that Kyrie Irving wanted to be traded.

With Kyrie Irving wanting out of Cleveland, you have to think that Masai Ujiri and the Raptors have at least made a phone call inquiring what the asking price is.

It would also enable Irving to take over as a No. 1 scoring option in a major market.

The Timberwolves reportedly are one of the teams Irving would prefer to be traded to as he reportedly has grown exhausted of playing second fiddle to LeBron James.

Irving, 25, signed a five-year deal worth $90 million in July 2014 and is due $60 million over the next three seasons.

What will make Irving attractive to teams around the league is his team-friendly contract. But the Cavs might bite because of the bulk of deal would be given to them, while the Clippers land their next star point guard.

What seemed like an unbreakable bond on and off the court quickly must've deteriorated during the offseason as LeBron James and Kyrie Irving seemed to be headed for a divorce. Irving averaged 25 points a game for the 2016-2017 season - a record for his professional career. As Aldridge reported, the Cavaliers were trying to lure Butler to Cleveland.

"They believe that LeBron James got word of it, and was put off by it, and leaked it".

Even still a deal featuring Anthony for Irving makes a lot of sense.
