Back in July, #Kyrie Irving dropped a bombshell on the front office of the Cleveland Cavaliers [VIDEO]when he requested a trade. It has been well reported that Kyrie wants to be the head guy, and focal point, and not #LeBron James' sidekick.

The Boston Celtics offered Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder, and a first round 2018 draft pick in trade for Kyrie Irving. Though this seemed like the trade of a lifetime, the deal has hit a serious snag.

Isaiah Thomas aggravated an old hip injury during the playoffs, which forced him out of the Eastern Conference Finals, and his time of return is up for debate. If this health issue cannot be figured out between the two teams, the trade will be vetoed.

Worst case scenario

Worst case scenario: The trade gets vetoed and everyone is back to the drawing board, or do they? A prospective landing spot for Kyrie Irving has surfaced in the case that this trade doesn't go through, the #Milwaukee Bucks.

ESPN's Zach Lowe reported today that the Milwaukee Bucks has stepped forward with a deal offer for the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard. They are offering guard Malcolm Brogdon and forward Khris Middleton in a trade for the All-Star point guard. It is also a likely option that Milwaukee would throw in a first round draft pick in order to secure Kyrie Irving's services.

An intriguing offer

Malcolm Brogdon is coming off a season worth talking about because the title of 2016-2017 Rookie of the Year is an incredible accomplishment. Especially, when you consider that Brogdon was the 36th selection of the second round in the 2016 NBA draft.

A young talent like that has a lot to learn, but also all the intangibles it takes to become an All-Star.

Khris Middleton may be a little more of a gamble. He is coming off a season where he was only able to play in 29 games last season. But, he put up career stats during the 2015-2016 season. He averaged 18 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and a steal in that season.

Complicated situation for the Cavs

The Cavaliers have a lot more riding on this trade then just getting some talent to stock around LeBron. They have to try an get this trade done. Could you imagine what that Cleveland locker room would be like if Kyrie Irving doesn't get traded, with all the has transpired and been said.?

Also, LeBron James will be a free agent at the end of this coming season, and Cleveland needs to make sure that what they do right now helps them to win right now and entice LeBron James to resign with Cleveland.

And the Kyrie Irving saga continues.
