Kevin Durant Weighs In On Cavaliers’ Situation

It may seem like the Cavaliers have a unique problem on their hands with Kyrie Irving requesting a trade. However, Kevin Durant tells Chris Haynes of ESPN.com that trade requests routinely occur behind the scenes without the media learning of them.

“It’s just a regular NBA problem, right? A lot of teams have gone through this before,” Durant said. “They’ll figure it out. That’s a great organization, a championship organization. They’ll figure it out.”

Having a deal in place by the time training camp begins would avoid a potential distraction. However, if Irving isn’t moved by then, Durant believes Irving and LeBron James would eventually work out their differences.

“It’s not the end of the world,” Durant said. “Both of those guys won a championship together. They love each other. If Kyrie wants to do something else, that’s on him. I’m sure whatever happens, it’ll work out for the best for both of them. But it’s just a normal NBA problem. It’s just two big stars that it’s happening to.”

Earlier in the week, Durant played pickup basketball with James and Carmelo Anthony among others. The 2013/14 MVP downplayed the event.

“If somebody wants to hoop, we just hoop. We just went out there and played, bro. Nothing too serious,” Durant said.

      Durant played out his contract. Which is what Kyrie is going to do if the only offers are the LOL-worthy ones that get posted here by fanboys.

        There may not enough teams that want to win, to make a good tradimg market for winners. Irving outplayed Wall and Lowery inthe playoffs and Curry in 2016 but there aren’t enough GMs that care. Meanwhile bleacher report and others rank Wall and Lowery ahead of Irving. Do the real contests not matter?

        • Wall is universally considered ahead of Kyrie, but I think most people would rank Irving ahead of Lowry. In the east I would say
          1.Wall
          2.Irving
          3.IT
          4.Lowry
          5. Kemba or Dragic

            What do you think of Wall’s recent comment, where he is okay with missing the last 11 shots versus Boston in gm7 because he wasn’t passive? (0 for 11 better than 0 for 0)
            Stats: Beal 12/22, Porter 6/10, Wall 8/23
            “Selfish” Irving would have at least gotten to the line (where Wall went 1/2).
            But yes Wall is usually ranked higher.

              Can’t rate players of just one game, even if it is conference finals

                The PG position may not be the right place for a volume-shooting mentality. I would prefer that a PG who is not hitting, set someone else up, or draw fouls.
                For a PG, C, or top defender, especially, 0/0 IS better than 0/11!
