LeBron Won't Waive No-trade Clause for Any Team

Clearly, Rose is nowhere near a replacement for Irving, but the signing would give the Cavaliers a starting caliber point guard should they trade Irving and fail to get a suitable signal caller back in return.

Miami could save Cleveland money by offering Dragic, Wayne Ellington, and Justise Winslow for [Iman] Shumpert and Irving, but Cleveland would likely turn up its nose unless the market proves cool.

It was not a sudden burst of anger with Kyrie Irving, but instead a gnawing frustration with LeBron James that built through years.

The 28-year-old Rose averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists in 64 games last season, his eighth since being drafted first overall by Chicago in 2008. That he wants to be the Alpha, that he wants to have a team like Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving. It's the summertime, a lot of craziness going on in the National Basketball Association.

Irving is under contract for three more seasons, but can opt out in the summer of 2019.

Irving's request for a trade has put the franchise in a distressing position considering it has gone to three straight NBA Finals and has captured one title in that span. That said, Irving has little leverage to force himself from being traded there. Even when it was him and Kevin Love (which might suggest why it's been so hard for the Cavaliers to find a trade for Love), the Cavaliers had a negative net rating. Instead, he could be a complementary scoring option to LeBron James and Co. As Kyrie Irving admitted in a recent interview, things aren't looking great. The Cavs might need some changes even after they let go of Irving, but it is not impossible.

No one really knows what's going to happen at this point. Though, given his full no-trade clause, he could basically control his destination, it appears he wants to stick it out in Cleveland a little longer and see if the Cavs have another run in them.
