It has been three weeks since Kyrie Irving has requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since then, many teams have approached the Cavs with trade deals, but they have been patiently waiting for the best offer. The Cavaliers will need to give up Irving at some point of time. With a recent update from Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN, it appears that the Phoenix Suns are all set to complete a deal for the all star point guard.

The Cavs are willing to part with one of the strongest assets, but they have still not got the right offer. The Phoenix Suns are ready to ship Eric Bledsoe and Dragan Bender to the Cavaliers. In return, they would acquire Kyrie Irving, but it turns out that the Suns might need to step up their trade offer as the Cavs are still hesitant.

The Suns are not ready to part with Josh Jackson or Devin Booker

The Phoenix Suns are holding on to their stars like Josh Jackson and Devin Booker.

According to Fansided, if the Suns offer Booker and Jackson for Irving the Cavs might just agree on the deal. At this moment, the Cavs might not be interested in Eric Bledsoe and Dragan Bender. They have got offers from the Miami Heat and other teams, but nobody knows what the Cavs want in return for their point guard.

Dragan Bender would emerge to be a great player for the future Cavaliers. As for Eric Bledsoe, he has great potential but might not be enough along with Bender.

If the Phoenix Suns add Marquese Chriss to the package, they might be able to strike a deal with the Cavs. Chriss has a great future with his age backing him as an advantage. The 20-year-old NBA star could be a valuable prospect for the Cavaliers.

Will the Suns offer Marquese Chriss along with Dragan Bender and Eric Bledsoe?

Striking a three player deal for Irving might not be in the interest of the Suns, but the Cavs might consider the option.

On the other hand, giving up a player like Marquese Chriss is not an easy task for the Suns. They could use Chriss as the young core and develop their team for the future.

If the Cavs strike a three player deal with the Suns for Irving, they might retain Marquese Chriss and Eric Bledsoe. Plus they will also have the option to trade Dragan Bender to another team. Bledsoe has managed to emerge as one of the top point guards in the league, he averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists per game last season.

These are the options that the Suns have at the moment. The Cleveland Cavaliers might wait it out a few more days to see what best they could get for Kyrie Irving.
