According to sources, Kyrie Irving had a meeting last week the Cavs front office and discussed trade scenarios, and his displeasure with playing alongside LeBron James. The news broke today via Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Irving’s agent Jeff Wechsler would not confirm or deny if Kyrie actually requested a trade at the meeting. This comes less than a month after the Cavs dismissed GM David Griffin.

LeBron James was obviously blindsided by the report that Kyrie wants out. James must be feeling the off-season blues as teams all around the NBA are adding big pieces while his Cavs seem to be losing ground in the arms race.

Last week Kyrie had this to say to Sports Illustrated about the Cavs off-season situation…

“I understand we’re in a very peculiar place. We just have to, you know, make sure that all our pieces are aligned first, and then we go from there. It’s the summertime, a lot of craziness going on in the NBA.”

This makes for an even more interesting, and crazy, late summer activity period in the NBA. We will continue to follow this story as more details emerge.
