REPORT: Cavs Tried Offering Kyrie Irving to Warriors for Klay Thompson

Cavs GM Koby Altman made a big splash yesterday by coming out of what was looking like a lose-lose situation as a big winner by landing Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and a first round pick in 2018 for Kyrie Irving. Altman was privately working to make a big move for Kyrie all along, so when the C’s offered this package he went through with it fairly quick. The Undefeated is reporting that the Cavs even reached out to the “uninterested” Warriors about a Kyrie for Klay Thompson swap.

Altman was extremely focused on the future in making this trade, a source said. This trade may give James much more faith in Altman as a general manager. It would be hard to believe that Altman could have landed a better trade than the Boston one. He did call the uninterested Warriors about Klay Thompson, a source said.
