Cavs in serious talks with Suns, Knicks to trade Kyrie Irving for Carmelo Anthony, Eric Bledsoe

As most hoops fans know, the Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers are (and have been) interested in acquiring New York Knicks All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony. Until now, talks between the two sides have flown under the media’s proverbial radar. However, according to a report from Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports that was released earlier today, a deal for Melo is a real possibility for the Cavs — if they can manage to bring a third team into the mix, which they appear to be working on.

Schultz reports that the Cavs would need to incorporate a third team (possibly the Phoenix Suns) in any deal for Anthony, as they simply don’t have much to offer a player of his caliber at this very moment.

News of Cleveland’s renewed trade discussions with the Knicks comes on the heels of ESPN’s Brian Windhorst’s report that Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving requested a trade in a meeting with team owner Dan Gilbert last week.

Whether or not a trade will actually come to fruition can only be speculated on at this point. Be sure to keep your browsers locked on Cavs Nation for more updates on this topic as they become available.
