#Kyrie Irving is still on the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he may soon be traded to another team [VIDEO]. Just a week ago, it was revealed that the All-Star point guard wants to leave the Cavaliers [VIDEO]as he is not happy with his role on the team. Irving reportedly wants to be the first option on his team and he seems tired of being overshadowed by #LeBron James. As long as James is there, Irving won't be the first option, and that is why he wants out.

The point guard wants to be traded to another team, and he has a list of a few preferred landing spots. One of those spots is Miami as Irving would like to join the Heat.

Since the team from South Beach doesn't have a true superstar, trading for Kyrie Irving would make a lot of sense and would make them competitive in the East.

Miami Heat's comments about the Irving trade

A few days ago, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Heat are willing to trade Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow to the Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving. While this trade would make a lot of sense for both teams, it seems that Miami has other plans.

The team denied rumors about the reported trade for Irving. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported it, saying that the Cavaliers ask for too much for their point guard.

It appears that the Heat will keep their current core intact and they won't be trading their key players. Goran Dragic is a big part of the team and he runs the offense.

On the other side, Winslow will be entering his third season and while he is coming off a season-ending injury, he is expected to have a breakout year.

Trading for a superstar would make sense for the #Miami Heat as they would be competitive in the East. With a player like Kyrie Irving on the roster, the Heat would have a chance to dethrone the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James. However, it seems that the team will not be making big moves anytime soon.

Where will Kyrie Irving land?

According to recent reports, there are 20 NBA teams interested in Kyrie Irving and six of them have already made offers to the Cavaliers. Knowing that Irving is not happy in Cleveland, it is unlikely that the Cavaliers will keep him on the team.

Teams like San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves are potential landing spots for the superstar guard and it won't be surprising if the Cavaliers trade their playmaker in the next few days. The only question that remains is what the Cleveland Cavaliers will get in return for Kyrie Irving.
