However, the Knicks don't appear to be willing to include the Zinger in a potential trade, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

If Cleveland agrees to trade Irving, the Boston Celtics would be smart to go all in for this upcoming season.

It's a possibility that Irving switches conferences, though, as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Irving said the Cavaliers are in "a peculiar place". Irving has been with the Cavaliers since being their No. 1 overall pick out of Duke in the 2011 NBA Draft. NY can't just ship him out of town before Anthony's approval - and all signs point to the Rockets still being the favorite for him as far as preference, although Cleveland is also on his short list of preferred teams. Everyone assumed he was talking about LeBron James's uncertain future with the team, but on Friday news broke suggesting that perhaps he was talking about his own.

The Timberwolves reportedly are one of the teams Irving would prefer to be traded to as he reportedly has grown exhausted of playing second fiddle to LeBron James.

But Israel's defence minister Avigdor Lieberman said it can live without security cooperation with the Palestinians. A neighbour, an off-duty soldier, heard the screams, rushed to the home and opened fire, wounding the attacker.

The New York option might prove the most titillating to the basketball world, as it's also been rumored that Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is open to a trade to the Cavs. The Cavaliers made it to three straight NBA Finals and won a championship since James' return.

Irving and Butler are close, but the Cavs went the other way with that information - trying to line up a trade for Butler. But you can expect many teams to pursue Irving, and those with more and better assets. The Australian-born point guard played high school basketball in Montclair and Elizabeth, New Jersey, which would make a trade to NY something of a homecoming.

Irving would be a game changer for the Nuggets. Irving averaged 25 points a game for the 2016-2017 season - a record for his professional career.

For Irving the Knicks make a ton sense because he wants to be the so called "the man" and the Knicks only have Porzingis as another star.
