The Cleveland Cavaliers point-guard has requested a trade, and since then, many teams are trying to acquire the NBA superstar. A recent rumor states that Irving has a high possibility to land with the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Phoenix Suns. Irving has a few teams where he wishes to go including the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs, and Miami Heat.

Given the current situation, it seems that Kyrie Irving will soon be breaking his partnership with LeBron James. The 25-year-old guard is at his peak in his NBA career, and the T-wolves would not want to miss an opportunity. According to CBS Sports, they are serious about obtaining Irving.

Who will the Timberwolves trade for Kyrie Irving?

Rumor has it that Minnesota might be ready to part with Andrew Wiggins for Irving. That said, the Cavaliers need to be happy with the deal or they might consider other options. As for Kyrie, he would be happy if he is traded to Minnesota. In fact, he mentioned the wolves as one of his preferences.

Back in 2014, the Cavs traded Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota for Kevin Love. Every team in the NBA is trying to build a stronger team, and the Cavs are adamant to be set as a win-now organization. Considering these options, they might want something more from the wolves.

Phoenix Suns are also planning a trade with Cleveland

Surprisingly, the Phoenix Suns are also involved in trade talks with the Cavs for Irving.

They have a strong asset that they could offer in return for the point guard. Eric Bledsoe seems to be the right player that could take Irving's place. Mainly because he is a point guard and he could turn out to be the right person to replace Irving.

Bledsoe is coming off of his best all-around season, with 21.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.4 steals per game, the Cavs need not worry about production.

Eric managed to pull through this by sitting out of the last 14 games. At the end of the day, the Cavs will take a closer look and take the best offer to trade Irving's services.

It appears that the Phoenix Suns have an advantage over the Timberwolves. They have other, stronger assets like Josh Jackson, also mentioned to be a candidate for Irving's trade.

The moment Irving requested a trade from the Cavaliers, the rumors have been swirling around the young point guard.

It is clear that he wants out from the Cavs, and the team has also made it clear that they will be ready to trade their point guard if they get a good replacement.
