Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving doesn't quell LeBron James leaving chatter

Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving doesn't quell LeBron James leaving chatter

A report on Thursday afternoon from ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski indicates that National Basketball Association free agent Derrick Rose and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in talks for a one-year deal.

The Cavs are believed to be offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million for the upcoming season to play with Kyrie Irving in the team's backcourt.

If he joins the Cavaliers, it would mean that between Golden State and Cleveland, they would have every NBA MVP from 2009 through 2016.

The Bulls traded Rose to the New York Knicks last offseason.

James is aware of Irving's request, as are numerous Cavs teammates, and they are experiencing a range of emotions - sources said - from disappointment, to shock, to sadness. Attending a Fashionable 50 event in Los Angeles put on by SI, Irving said, "The best thing we can do is handle things with class and professionalism". He'd have a better chance to contend for a title in Cleveland, though he is likely looking for an opportunity to get as much playing time as possible.

General manager David Griffin could not come to an agreement on a new contract with Gilbert and left the organization, days before the draft.

The Cavs already have four-time All-Star Kyrie Irving at point guard. LeBron James is reportedly not impressed by the additions of Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Cedi Osman and the re-signing of Kyle Korver.

Cleveland Cavaliers team-mates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Last season, the Cavaliers were the only team to use the exemption. "We just have to make sure that all our pieces are aligned first and then we go from there. We are respectfully going to keep those private".

Nobody should feel sorry for Rose, who still has a lifetime contract with Adidas worth upwards of a reported $200 million.

As for Clark, he could help the Lakers' outside shooting after averaging a career-high 6.8 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from 3-point range last season with Golden State.
