In the wake of the recent news that #Kyrie Irving wants to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers because of his discontent of playing with #LeBron James, the crazy, hypothetical trades have begun. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, James will not waive his no-trade clause at any time this season. However, there’s nothing wrong with wondering who has the best chance of trading for James with the pieces they already have.

All of the following scenarios are unlikely. However, if the Cavaliers felt that they would rather keep Kyrie Irving, then these trades can help stir up a debate of what the best decision would be.
