Kyrie Irving adamant in denying trade request reports

February 3, 2014

Following reports that he was privately begging out of Cleveland, Kyrie Irving‘s future with the Cavs seemed as guaranteed as LeBron James‘ with the same franchise the summer of the Decision.

Irving addressed those reports this weekend, and according to Cleveland Plain Dealer NBA writer Mary Schmitt Boyer, he was convincing in his commitment to the Cavaliers.

“It’s always been very veiled, the reports […] I don’t think we’ve ever seen an actual report that he’s demanded to be traded, asked to be traded, anything like that,” Schmitt Boyer said on SiriusXM NBA Radio. “He was emphatic [in denying the reports …] I’m going to take him at his word, and frankly the Cavaliers control him for a long time, so I guess at this point he’s going to have to decide if he wants to be part of the problem or part of the solution.”
