The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Kyrie Irving situation remain the NBA's hottest topic. As reported earlier this summer, Irving requested a trade, and it seems as though his departure is inevitable. The 25-year-old point guard named several teams as his preferred landing spots, but it is obvious that almost every team in the NBA would welcome him. After Kyrie named the Knicks, the Heat, the Timberwolves, and the Spurs as his preferred trade destinations, nobody thought any other team could be involved in this potential deal.

But as time went on teams started inquiring about the All-Star point guard, and reportedly, the Phoenix Suns have the best pieces to offer, though the Denver Nuggets could also be in the mix.

Denver has a lot to offer

The Nuggets missed the playoffs narrowly last season as they finished ninth in the Western Conference standings with a 40-42 record. The last time Denver played a playoff game was during the 2012/2013 season, but with the way they played last season it seems like they are headed in the right direction.

Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com wrote on his page that the Nuggets are also involved in a potential Kyrie Irving trade deal, but apparently no official offer has been made yet. Pluto reported that Denver has several good pieces that could be interesting for the Cavaliers and one of those pieces is their young shooting guard Gary Harris. The other one is their point guard Jamal Murray and the Cavaliers would like to include the pair of them in this potential trade, according to Pluto.

Would Kyrie Irving fit with the Nuggets?

Irving still has two more years left on his current contract with the Cavaliers, and it is questionable if he will commit long-term with the Nuggets if they acquire him this summer. If indeed this deal goes through, Cleveland would get two good, young players with great potential for the future. Harris is a 6-foot-4 shooting guard that played extremely well for the Nuggets last season.

He averaged 14.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season while shooting 42% from the three-point line. Jamal Murray was the seventh pick in last year's draft, and he showed flashes of his potential in his first season with Denver. At 6-foot-4 Murray has great size for the point guard position and Cleveland would love to have him for the future. In his rookie season with the Nuggets, Murray averaged 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game.
