Cavs nearly landed George, Bledsoe in 3-team Kyrie trade

Cavs nearly landed George, Bledsoe in 3-team Kyrie trade

Rumors had run rampant of the Cleveland Cavaliers exploring trade options to move Kyrie Irving in order to land big-time free agents, even before the 25-year-old requested a trade. According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, the Cavs were in line to thread a three-team trade with the Indiana Pacers and the Phoenix Suns, signifying Irvings exit from The Land.

This three-team deal would have landed star swingman Paul George and point guard Eric Bledsoe to Cleveland, while Irving and sharp-shot Channing Frye would make their way to Phoenix, with the Pacers receiving the Suns No. 4 overall selection and Jared Dudley, as well as the Cavs Iman Shumpert.

Bill Simmons even hinted during his podcast (listen at the 8:12 mark) that Cleveland was trying to trade Irving even before he approached the front office asking for a trade.

The Cavs were coming off a devastating loss to the Golden State Warriors in a five-game series and it was clear as water they needed to switch things up if they hoped to get another chance at the crown. LeBron James had played undoubtedly the best series of his NBA career and it was all for naught, making the front office aware that changes needed to be made.
