Cavs trade rumors: Kristaps Porzingis trade contingent on taking Joakim Noah?

Cavs trade rumors: Kristaps Porzingis trade contingent on taking Joakim Noah?

It is important to remember here that the Cavaliers' higher-ups will still be the ones to trade Irving, and they will be seeking the best offer in exchange for their dynamic playmaker.

In case you missed Adrian Wojnarowski's latest Kyrie Irving update over at ESPN, the Cavs don't appear any closer to a deal for Irving today than they were a week ago, or the week before that. Wojnarowski believes the Cavs may wait until September before engaging in "aggressive conversations".

"Milwaukee has shown interest in Irving, too, league sources said, but there isn't that one young star - of course, Giannis Antetokounmpo is untouchable - who makes sense for Cleveland".

In addition to Porzingis, the Cavs are "fixated" on other up-and-coming stars such as Boston's Jayson Tatum, Phoenix's Josh Jackson and Denver's Jamal Murray, according to Wojnarowski.

After all, the Clippers are in the midst of an eventful offseason that has already included the trade of former franchise point guard Chris Paul and the addition of several new players. The whole report from Woj is worth a read as it details a few of the potential landing spots for Irving and the current obstacles to him landing there.

Cleveland is determined to get an elite young player for Irving, which means this: "The trade plan the Cavaliers would have prioritized, with James committed for the long term - veterans to surround James and draft picks - isn't in motion".

There had been some tension between Porzingis, 22, and the Knicks after the 7-foot-3 Latvian skipped his exit interview with then-team president Phil Jackson out of frustration over how the team was being run.

Our own John Gambadoro reported last month that Suns brass informed Jackson he wouldn't be involved in any Irving trade, yet the rumors persist. The ban will stretch through the first 12 games of next season.
