Again, this seems like nothing more than sports talk radio chatter, rooted in very little beyond James' much-publicized free agency and Irving's recent declaration that he has no plans to sign a contract extension with the Celtics this offseason because it doesn't make sense financially. Irving, who is set to make just over $21 million this year, will nearly certainly be set to sign for even more money in a new contract, whether in Boston or elsewhere. Maybe that means sending Irving to the Knicks in a three-way deal this summer, with the Cavs sending LeBron James to the Celtics. As Real GM's Keith Smith points out, Irving signing an extension instead of a new contract next summer would cost him about $80 million.
Irving, who requested a trade from the Cavaliers last summer reportedly in an attempt to move away from James and lead his own team, was asked if he would be open to reuniting with LeBron on Tuesday.
"In this business, I've kind of experienced it all and I've seen a lot, so we'll see what management decides", Irving said, as quoted on NBA.com. Sure, New York is a new opportunity, but the Knicks are far from contenders, and they are unlikely to reach that status even if they somehow acquired Irving. Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the outside-looker, but they were just - they were always locked in.
Irving requested a trade away from Cleveland and James past year, telling the front office he'd prefer to go to New York, San Antonio, Minnesota or Miami. "Only beneficial. I love that they have that belief in themselves because they saw it firsthand what it was like to be on that big stage".
