Cavs 'fixated' on Getting Young Star for Kyrie Irving

Both statements go hand-in-hand. Nearly everybody has spoken about what their future looks like, and this includes media members, players, executives and more.

It's not shocking the Raptors weighed all options after ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst reported Irving was seeking a trade away from the Cavaliers. It seems unlikely that he would ask to leave a team that he believed was a legitimate championship contender. That's fine. I've talked about that at length in the past.

As the Cleveland Cavaliers deliberate on deals to move All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, the franchise is operating under a self-prescribed mandate: presume a future without LeBron James. That may be hard for the Spurs to accomplish, unless they had a sudden change of heart with Kawhi Leonard (something very unlikely to happen, one would think).

Woj also stated the Cavs are also interested in trading for Boston's Jayson Tatum, Phoenix's Josh Jackson or Denver's Jamal Murray, if the Porzingis/Knicks deal doesn't progress. Although last season Rose was more like the "old" Derrick Rose, his outside shooting and defense still fell in bottom percentiles of the league, which could potentially hinder the Cavaliers if they were to be in the finals.

When describing the dynamic of James and Irving, Gilbert Arenas said it best.

A young star is key for Cleveland because of the uncertain future of LeBron James.

Let's say hypothetically that Kevin Durant suffered the injury in game 1 of that series instead of Leonard.

But Porzingis offers a more unique upside than Irving.

It's been a rough couple of months for Cleveland, starting with their loss in June. But that's easier said than done, because Irving is one of the few players who actually might be too good to trade, because of how hard it will be to get equal value back. On top of that, their roster has nearly no wriggle room. This past postseason that didn't go as planned. The Warriors won in 5, and it took a historic offensive performance by the Cavs in game four just to avoid a sweep.

Bledsoe alone is not enough if the Suns want Irving, however, which is why Jackson's name has been mentioned in trade rumors.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, many around the National Basketball Association are questioning how committed the Knicks really are to Porzingis.
