Kyrie Irving situation is getting more and more interesting as of late. Recent information is saying that he might likely be traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers and heads to a team that not everyone expected. Former Cavaliers general manager David Griffin made the biggest revelation saying that Irving also listed the Boston Celtics as his preferred destination.

Up until now, Irving's trade request from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert came as shock to many basketball fans. After helping the Cavaliers win its first NBA championship in three consecutive NBA Finals appearances, Irving surprisingly demanded to be out of the team and move on to another team.

With that, numerous teams have shown their interest to acquire the 25-year old point guard.

Where will Irving land?

As soon as Irving's trade request came out, six teams already offered a deal to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyrie. The team includes the San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns. Out of those teams, the Spurs is reportedly the frontrunner to acquire the four-time NBA All-Star.

While other teams like the Knicks, Clippers, Heat and Timberwolves have seems to give up, the Suns made one latest offer to the Cavs. However, ex-Cavs GM David Griffin just recently revealed another team who might have the inside track of landing Irving.

And unexpectedly, the team he mentioned is Cleveland's Eastern Conference rival, the Boston Celtics.

Irving to Celtics?

Just last month, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN already reported that the Boston Celtics was one of Kyrie's first suitors. Now, almost two months after he was removed from the front office by the Cavs organization, Griffin may perhaps validate the connection of Irving and the Celtics.

Griffin appeared on ESPN TV show The Jump last Monday and linked Kyrie to Celtics twice.

Griffin initially lauds Irving's bravery to ask for a trade and likes how the shifty point guard handles the situation. Now, the former Cavs GM mentioned that Kyrie listed Celtics coach Brad Stevens as one of the coaches he wants to play aside from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, according to Ball Don't Lie's analyst Ben Rohrbach.

And for the second time, Griffin once again brought up the Celtics by mentioning that Irving would love to accompany other great players like Gordon Hayward in Boston and Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio. Some say that this is an interesting trade given that the Celtics have enough assets like Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder to offer. Other say it is improbable to take place but in NBA, strangest things happen.
