National Basketball Association reporter David Aldridge revealed that Irving made a trade request last month in hopes of landing in Chicago and playing alongside Jimmy Butler. Also by adding Kyrie, this could show Carmelo that the Knicks still want to make some sort of push in a rather weak Eastern Conference.

The kid with the insane handles rocked the Rock "N Roll Hall of Fame capital when he asked the Cavs" front office to trade him out of Cleveland.

After rumors emerged that Cleveland Cavaliers superstar Kyrie Irving has requested a trade, we have learned the frontrunners to land him.

Irving's agent, Jeff Wechsler, would not confirm or deny whether Irving asked for a trade.

With Kyrie Irving wanting out of Cleveland, you have to think that Masai Ujiri and the Raptors have at least made a phone call inquiring what the asking price is. Irving has been with the Cavaliers since being their No. 1 overall pick out of Duke in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The Law and Justice party has said sweeping changes are needed to reform an inefficient and sometimes corrupt judicial system. In December, PiS backed off a proposal to restrict media access to parliament - again, after impassioned street protests .

Smith said in a recent appearance on ESPN's Sportscenter that "LeBron James had everything to do with the news getting out". Irving considered asking for a trade after last year's title for the same reasons he now wants to leave.

In Barcelona, there are many suggestions that Neymar wants to move to PSG because he is exhausted of playing in the shadow of Lionel Messi, and there's a strikingly similar situation developing in Cleveland as reports on NBA Radio claimed that the 2016 NBA Finals MVP was ready to be the main guy elsewhere. The New York Knicks, Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves are other possible destinations listed by Irving's camp. "We are respectfully going to keep those private". Second off, the Knicks have not had a prominent point guard for as long as I could recall.

Irving going to San Antonio would be a game changer for the organization.

Irving, a four-time All-Star who averaged a career-best 25.2 points and 5.8 assists last season, has three years and $60 million remaining on his contract, with a 15% trade kicker.

Star big man Kristaps Porzingis was reportedly on the trade block before Phil Jackson stepped down as Knicks team president.
