ESPN's Brian Windhorst has reported that Irving has dropped a bombshell on the Cavaliers by requesting a trade last week.

Irving's agent, Jeff Wechsler, did not specifically confirm a trade request in comments to With this change of heart and sudden availability, should the Denver Nuggets pursue a trade for Irving?

In order for a trade featuring Anthony for Irving to work for the Cavaliers, they'd need to find a way to clear up some additional cap space.

Irving averaged a career-high 25.2 points and 5.8 assists per game while shooting 40.1 percent from 3-point range last season. However, if the reported three-way trade takes place with the Cavaliers, Bledsoe would be Cleveland-bound.

Basically, Irving wants to be the center of attention somewhere, which is perfectly fine - he is a superstar who wants the opportunity to prove this on his own team.
