Kyrie Irving recently requested trade from Cavaliers
Cleveland Cavaliers starting point guard Kyrie Irving apparently wants out of “Believe Land.” According to a Friday afternoon report from Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Irving requested a trade away from the Cavaliers just last week.
“The request came last week and was made to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Irving has expressed that he wants to go play in a situation where he can be a more focal point and no longer wants to play alongside LeBron James, sources said,” writes Windhorst.
League sources confirmed the report to Adam Zagoria of FanRag Sports.
The 25-year-old Irving has notably spent his entire six-year NBA career as a member of the Cavaliers after Cleveland originally selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Duke.
