"I'm not sure. Phoenix, of course, hired (former Cavalier) James Jones this offseason", McMenamin said.

While some of the teams in Irving's list like the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat are a tough fit due to the lack of necessary assets, the Clippers reportedly had made an effort to acquire the 25-year-old star.

According to McMenamin on the BBall Breakdown podcast, Irving went consecutive days without speaking to his teammates during practice in between the in and Toronto series.

"It's one thing to say people go through their ups and downs in the regular season, but when you get to the playoffs, the main thing is the main thing, and we're brothers, and we're pulling together to get this thing done", McMenamin said, via Deadspin. Jones is obviously a close friend of LeBron James and his team is one of the front-runners in the chase for Kyrie.

On the other hand, Brighton & Hove Albion will try to give it all for a win in club's first-ever Premier League game. He added: "We played four games, one with four at the back and the last three with three at the back".

That decision will see West have more of an input on matters from an executive point of view and if anybody can pull off an Irving trade, it's the logo. Could Cleveland not talk to Phoenix now after this leak of information? McMenamin's comments above start at the 20:37 mark.

It sounds like Kyrie Irving's displeasure with the Cleveland Cavaliers may have gone further than his desire to lead a team on his own. This could have been crucial if they had momentary collapses throughout those series.
