REPORT: These Six Teams Have Made Offers For Kyrie Irving


According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Spurs, Clippers, Heat, T-Wolves, Suns and Knicks have made trade offers to the Cavs for Kyrie Irving. Check out the details below.

So far, these are among the teams who’ve made offers to the Cavaliers for Irving, league sources say: The San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Phoenix Suns, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks and Miami Heat. There were approximately 20 teams that inquired with Cleveland upon the news of Irving’s trade request, league sources said, but far fewer have registered legitimate proposals. More loom in the shadows, and many simply don’t have the assets to make a deal happen.

The Cavaliers want a package that resembles the 2011 Nuggets-Knicks deal for Carmelo Anthony — young players, win-now veterans and draft picks, league sources said. For new general manager Koby Altman, this is a textbook way to open trade discussions. But for now, most Irving suitors are using the Timberwolves-Bulls trade model for Jimmy Butler, a scaled-down model of Melo’s rich return of assets.
