A new rumor emerged with the destination of Kyrie Irving. Ever since Irving told the Cavaliers he wanted out, rumors have circulated of potential trade offers by teams. Irving told the Cavaliers that he preferred to play for the Timberwolves, Spurs, Knicks, or Heat.

According to Daniel Starkand of Lakers Nation, the Phoenix Suns could be a dark horse. According to sources, the Suns offered Eric Bledsoe, Dragan Bender, and a Draft Pick for Irving. There's no confirmation that the Cavaliers are even interested in this deal as it faces many flaws.

Unproven commodities offered for Irving

The Cavaliers were reportedly interested in Josh Jackson, the No. 4 overall pick in this year's draft. However, the Suns have reportedly said they will refuse any trades that involve Jackson or Devin Booker. That leaves what the Suns offered. Bender averaged 3.4 points and 2.4 rebounds in 43 games this past season. He was the No. 4 overall pick in 2016.

Why would the Cavaliers pull the plug on a four time All Star point guard for a player that had a terrible season, and a draft pick?

The Cavaliers were reported in asking for more than Andrew Wiggins when the Minnesota Timberwolves made a trade offer. The Cavaliers don't even have to trade Irving, but this trade would likely get denied.

A group of guards that would cause confusing rotations

Bledsoe is a proven point guard in the league, but the Cavaliers just signed Derrick Rose to a one-year deal. It would be confusing how the Cavaliers would rotate Rose, Bledsoe, JR Smith, Deron Williams, and Kyle Korver. The Cavaliers would also have LeBron James, Kevin Love, and Tristan Thompson to work in.

Having this potential roster, the Cavaliers would have two options. They could run a three guard system that included James in the post. James has never been a true power forward in his recent seasons. There's option two where Love, Thompson, and James were on the floor, but how would coach Tyronn Lue divide playing time up? Long story short, this trade would cause more problems for the Cavaliers than benefits.

Trade not likely

When all of the lines are connected, the Cavaliers would not be receiving a quality haul in return.

The Cavaliers would have too many problems figuring out how to put lineups together. Plus, not a single player offered by the Suns is of All Star caliber or a future superstar. If Wiggins, a potential impact player, is not enough to bring in Irving, then Bledsoe, Bender, and a future draft pick will not get the job done either.
