Reports: Kyrie eyeing Knicks, ignoring Cavs

Ashish Mathur

Another day, another new rumor surrounding Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving.

By now, everyone knows that Irving has requested a trade and is looking to create his own legacy to escape the shadow of LeBron James.

The Cavs are talking to a number of teams currently and are said to be in no rush to make a deal.

Anyone who is under the assumption that Irving is open to the idea of repairing his relationship with James and the Cavs probably won't take this next bit of news well.

">ESPN's Pablo Torre, meanwhile, created more headlines Thursday when he said on First Take that Irving wants to go home and play for the New York Knicks, citing a source.

New York is willing to include Carmelo Anthony and future first round picks in a deal for Irving, according to reports, but it is unclear if Cleveland has any interest in pursuing that deal.

Sources have told Amico Hoops the Cavs will not be pursuing a swap of Irving for Anthony -- as the Cavs are demanding young talent as part of a package in return for Irving.
