As the Cleveland Cavaliers crazy season continues to spiral out of control another bomb shell came out today in Chad Ford’s weekly chat. Kyrie Irving is unhappy and wants out of Cleveland, according to reports.
Virtually every GM in the league believes that Grant will be gone this summer if things don’t get turned around this season. He doesn’t have much time. The thinking is that there’s no way Dan Gilbert is going to let him make another lottery pick if that’s the direction the Cavs end up heading. Grant’s goal (via his owner) is to get this team competitive and into the playoffs. The Deng move was supposed to help. But so far … nothing. Chemistry is a major issue there and some of that is on Mike Brown. But more of it is on the collection of players in Cleveland at the moment. Something has to happen quick. Kyrie Irving has been telling people privately he wants out. Cleveland can’t afford to lose him and LeBron. They know the urgency. I expect them to be major players at the deadline.
Not surprising that Irving would be unhappy and want out. The team is not playing well or as a team, Irving could see that as a long term problem and not desire to stick around. We at FoS also expect the team to be big players at the deadline this year in a attempt to pull the team together. Yet is there a trade, a player or a move that could change how Irving feels? Winning tends to change everything.
How does that change how you feel about Irving? Should the Cavs look to move him? What could go worse this season? Are you more frustrated with the Cavs then the Browns?
