Report: Kyrie Irving believed LeBron James wanted Cavaliers to trade Irving

Report: Kyrie Irving believed LeBron James wanted Cavaliers to trade Irving
Published On: Fri, Feb 08
June 13, 2016; Oakland, CA, USA; Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) and guard Kyrie Irving (2) speak to media following the 112-97 victory against the Golden State Warriors in game five of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Kyrie IrvingA reportedly requested a trade from the Cavaliers only afterA hearing they discussed trading him.

But maybe Irvinga€™s problem wasna€™t with the Cavs as an organization exploring trading him.

Maybe it was with a specific Cav looking to trade him a€“A LeBron James.

Jackie MacMullan of ESPN:

He was convinced and remains convinced a€“ maybe not now, maybe now because hea€™s so enlightened a€“ that LeBron wanted him gone, that LeBron wanted him traded, that LeBron wanted to bring in his guys. And thata€™s when he decided to go. It wasna€™t that Gilbert was maybe going to trade him. The fact that he thought LeBron wanted him moved on. And now LeBron denies that that was ever the case. I asked him myself.

LeBron reportedlyA suggestedA Cleveland trade Irving forA Damian Lillard, but that was supposedly after Irvinga€™s trade request.
