This offseason has been very intense so far, but we are just getting started! NBA Finals finished two weeks ago and free agency will start on July 1, which will make this summer even more exciting. There are a lot of amazing free agents who will be on the market and it should be one of the most intense free agency periods. Cleveland Cavaliers, who lost the NBA Finals in only five games, are looking to improve their roster and take the Golden State Warriors down next season.

The Cavaliers are already involved in trade talks and they have expressed their interest in some big-name free agents.

The latest report indicates that the 2016 NBA champions were close to trading Kyrie Irving to the Phoenix Suns. However, the deal didn't go through and the point guard will most likely stay in Cleveland for another year.

Irving to Phoenix, Paul George to Cleveland

Kyrie Irving was included in a trade that would eventually conclude with Paul George coming to Cleveland. The idea was to send Irving and another Cavalier, such as Channing Frye, to the Suns and get Eric Bledsoe and the fourth pick in the 2017 NBA draft in return.

The Cavaliers would then send the draft pick to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for George.

Considering that the Cavaliers would basically get both George and Bledsoe for Irving and Frye, it doesn't seem like a bad trade for them. On the other side, the Suns would get a young superstar in Irving and the Pacers would have a high draft pick they could use to start rebuilding.

While this trade seems perfect for all three teams involved, it did not go through. Irving is still in Cleveland while George remains on a trade block. The Suns used their pick to draft Josh Jackson, who has the potential to be one of the best players in the league in a few years.

Will Kyrie Irving be traded?

According to the report, LeBron James cannot give a guarantee that he will stay in Cleveland after next season. Therefore, it won't be surprising if the Cavaliers decide to make some drastic changes to the roster as they can't do much without LeBron.

It was mostly Kevin Love who was included in numerous trades this offseason, but it seems that Kyrie Irving is not safe either. Will he be traded this summer for someone who can help the Cavaliers beat the Warriors next year? There is no doubt that trading Irving would be a bad move as he is one of the best point guards in the league. However, it won't be surprising if the Cavaliers decide to trade him as they could potentially get a superstar who'd help them win another championship.
