A Kyrie Irving-Kristaps Porzingis trade being eyed

NBA Trade Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers eyeing NY Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis in exchange for Kyrie Irving

Once again, it will come down to their superstar LeBron James and his future with the team. LeBron James keeps posting cryptic messages on social media and names involved in potential trades keep getting mentioned, but overall, there doesn't seem to be any momentum building towards Irving finding a new National Basketball Association home.

The Cavs guard is willing to sign an extension with the Spurs if he were to be traded to San Antonio, ESPN reported Wednesday (AEDT).

One rumor has the Cavs sending Irving to the Detroit Pistons for a deal involving Pistons center Andre Drummond.

According to ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers are pretty much interested in getting Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis in a trade for Irving.

"This Irving trade process has been deliberate, and teams believe that the Cavaliers expect more aggressive conversations in September, closer to the start of training camps", Wojnarowski added. Over the plast three seasons, the Cavaliers have played 3,828 minutes - about 80 full games worth - with James on the floor without Irving.

By this point Asensio already had six goals in his first 11 appearances for Madrid , making him the team's top scorer at the time. After the Super Cup defeat, Sergio Busquets said Barca needed to renovate themselves otherwise there will be bigger problems.

It's no secret that LeBron and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert have had a tumultuous relationship since James" departure via "The Decision' in 2010. Even Jackson himself seems fairly confident that he is not going to Cleveland, at least not via a trade.

One team that hoped to get in on the Kyrie Irving sweepstakes was the Miami Heat. In the new Cleveland mindset, it's about young, building blocks like Porzingis.

Jackson, the fourth overall pick in the latest NBA Draft, is a hyper-athletic wing with the potential to be a lockdown defender and a playmaking forward.

This is all entirely too early to truly speculate, especially since the Celtics haven't made a formal offer. Still, the hangup is due to Cleveland having no interest in trying to win against the Warriors over the short term when they have a long term team to manage. Although last season Rose was more like the "old" Derrick Rose, his outside shooting and defense still fell in bottom percentiles of the league, which could potentially hinder the Cavaliers if they were to be in the finals.
