On Twitter, we asked what deals you’d accept for Kyrie Irving. Here are some of the best responses. Note that these have not been checked in the trade machine. Thanks to CelticsBlog and SB Nation NBA for the idea.
All in on Josh Jackson
The Suns were, by far, the most common destination for Kyrie. If they do give up Josh Jackson, they would make a lot of sense and we know the Cavs are interested.
of course you TRY, but if it's not workable the Bled, Jackson, pick trade is the best— Dollshon Kizeric (@ericj_d) August 6, 2017
Kyrie, Shump, Fry for Bledsoe, Jackson, and Tyson Chandler.— Jamie (@RealKingJames_) August 6, 2017
Bledsoe + Jackson + Pick— Euro Switch Hands (@JustinBarzak) August 6, 2017
If we can't get Jackson, then no go on the Phoenix trade. Cavs need young talented wings and draft picks- if not, then keep @KyrieIrving— crimsonjoe (@crimsonjoe) August 6, 2017
Denver Stiffs must really like Colorado herbs
Kyrie for Tyler Lydon, Kenneth Faried, and a top 20 protected 2018 1st (turns into 2 seconds).— Denver Stiffs (@denverstiffs) August 6, 2017
Say hi to the trolls
I do agree with Chris Barnewall.
The Cavs should trade him for that Kevin Durant guy— Mike Zavagno (@MZavagno11) August 6, 2017
The one that happens the soonest— Chris Barnewall (@ChrisBarnewall) August 6, 2017
Trade him for Tim Couch— Alex (@Kaderly_) August 6, 2017
Kyrie and Shump for the 92 Dream Team— Andrew Robbins (@ARobbins_5) August 6, 2017
Bringing Delly back
@CavsRW is right: there has been no buzz about the Bucks yet. But, if they get involved, a deal could make sense for both sides. But would the Cavs willingly deal Kyrie to play with Giannis?
Haven't heard buzz around this but I think Milwaukee is the best trade partner. Middleton plus some combo of Brogdan/Parker/Delly.— RW (@CavsRW) August 6, 2017
Trade Kyrie for Western Conference Kyrie
Hot take: the Cavs would do this if it was really available.

Trading Kyrie to Charlotte
This isn’t an awful place to start, but it doesn’t give the Cavs any youth in return. Iman Shumpert would have to go to Charlotte to make the math work too.
I like Charlotte kemba batum— Brendan Murphy (@BCM11) August 6, 2017

I say put those two in a room with a plate of mini sandwiches and a couple bottles of wine and lock the fucking door.— "Connor" (@TylerEtchell) August 6, 2017
