Will The Cavs Trade Irving For Knicks Carmelo Anthony?

Okay, so the blood is barely in the water, but assuming ESPN has this right and Kyrie Irving wants to be traded, the Cleveland Cavaliers may as well get on the phone with the Knicks and get a deal done for Carmelo Anthony.

It’s very possible per the ESPN trade machine.

There is no way a deal like this would have been on the table before Irving’s agent talked to the Cavaliers management, but the likelihood of getting a better deal done under duress isn’t all that good and the Knicks will be at least as desperate to deal as Cleveland.

Who else can the Cavs trade for that might help smooth over this pending disaster with LeBron James? Let the rampant speculation begin.
