NBA trade rumors are starting to swirl once again to Kyrie Irving. After his surprising trade request from the Cleveland Cavaliers came out, numerous speculations about his potential destination have emerged. Now, the latest information is saying that Irving allegedly picked the Los Angeles Clippers as a potential landing spot for him. And many believed that this is an interesting choice for him.

For the past weeks, Kyrie Irving has been in the spotlight of controversies after his shocking trade demand from the Cleveland Cavaliers organization surfaced.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Irving has said to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert that he wants to play on a team where he can be the focal point and doesn't want to play alongside LeBron James, sources said. Moreover, Kyrie initially named four teams as his preferred destination if ever he will be traded.

Irving's initial suitors

The San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Miami Heat were listed as the potential landing spot for Kyrie Irving. Out of those teams, the Spurs allegedly have the edge to get the services of the 25-year old point guard because of its great basketball culture and rich winning tradition.

However, the Phoenix Suns have offered guard Eric Bledsoe, forward/center Dragan Bender and a protected 2018 first-round draft pick to the Cavs to give up Irving, but it appears that it wasn't enough for them.

Earlier reports also floated that the Cavs are also targeting a possible trade deal with the Portland Trail Blazers for a Damian Lillard-Kyrie Irving swap. But it looks like that Kyrie has another team in mind.

Kyrie Irving to LA Clippers

According to Hoops Hype, veteran NBA reporter Peter Vecsey revealed in the podcast with Alex Kennedy that Irving would like to play for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Vecsey, who already linked Irving to the Clippers in his recent Patreon column, believed that the four-time NBA All-Star guard would eventually land to Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Clippers reportedly would love to have Kyrie Irving on their roster. After trading Chris Paul to Houston Rockets this offseason, the Clippers are in dire need of point guard to run their offense.

However, it seems that the Clippers didn't have enough assets to get Irving. But, with new Clippers consultant, Jerry West now has a say on forming the team, it is not impossible for a trade deal to happen.

West brought Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant to Los Angeles Lakers when he was the general manager of the team. And as history goes, that transaction created a dynasty in Los Angeles for years. With that, it won't be surprising if Kyrie Irving will be wearing a Clippers uniform in the coming days.
