Denver Nuggets won't use two certain players in trade for Kyrie Irving

Irving is one of the top point guards in National Basketball Association, and the Cavs will require a powerful replacement for their star player.

Say what you want about Cavaliers new GM Koby Altman being under qualified for the job, every single source that will speak to his approach to the Kyrie Irving situation has been complementary. They might want to acquire Irving, but not by giving up the 20-year-old emerging shooting guard. The Suns should take full advantage of Irving's lack of commitment and get a team friendly deal for the All-Star point guard. All of those things can only work to make this situation more complicated and they could also mean that Irving is not going to be traded for a while.

Irving's contract contains a 15 percent trade bonus that would pay him an additional $2.9 million in both the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.

Despite losing Paul, the Clippers got the best possible deal done after Paul opted into the final year of his deal and said he wanted to be traded.

Sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes that the Cavaliers were disturbed that Irving's request was made public, believing it could impact his trade value. Thus far, it seems like the Cavs are only able to get teams to agree on two of the three.

The Phoenix Suns are the team to watch on Kyrie Irving.

The Miami Heat reportedly offered Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow, but did not include anything more in the offer.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are also considered a team that could win out in an Irving trade if they included Andrew Wiggins in a package. A deal that is similar to that of the 2011 Nuggets-Knicks trade for Carmelo Anthony.

Pluto went on to note that the Suns would like to offer Cleveland a package of Brandon Knight, T.J. Warren, and Eric Bledsoe for Irving and some other pieces, such as Iman Shumpert or Channing Frye, in order to make the salaries line up. The Cavs should not create any deadlines this summer/fall because they control Irving's rights for the next two seasons before a player option. If they hang on to Irving, they risk entering next season with an ugly chemistry problem.

While he has input a list of the four teams he would like to be traded to, including a New York Knicks team he said he "very badly" wished to play for, his current team is not obligated to deal him to where he wishes. However, this is also going to make getting out of Cleveland very hard for him.
