CLEVELAND (CBSMiami) — The long offseason for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers may be about to get longer.
All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving asked Cavs owner Dan Gilbert to trade him, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported Friday.
He allegedly wants to be more of a focal point of the offense and doesn’t want to play alongside LeBron, the report said.
A possible destination?
The 6-year pro, a top player at the position and one of the best overall talents in the NBA, averaged 25.2 points and 5.8 assists per game last year.
