It would be a coup for the Knicks to dump Melo and get Irving. Pairing Irving and Porzingis would be terrific for them.

But it's hard for me to believe the Cavs couldn't get a better return for Irving than the Knicks could ever offer (assuming Porzingis is off the table).

Irving, Zingie, Hardaway. Need one more.

My impression is the media is way out ahead of anything serious. I doubt the Cavs are doing much of anything. They have been through this before. There is much fake news here on the tweets, trade suggestions etc.

Cleveland doesn't want just Melo in return. NY doesn't want to trade Porzingis. Of the four teams (NY, Miami, SA, and Minny), NY has the worst chance, in my opinion.

San Antonio would be a great fit. Lamarcus plus anyone not named Kawhi Leonard could prob get it done.

Three way trade? Danny should get involved while decent secondary players get tossed around....

why would Danny get involved? We have 16 guaranteed contracts of players we want. We can't take on salary

We could send some pieces like Rozier and another player for the guy we like, eg. Willy Hernangomez

NYC is desperate for basketball relevance, CLE will be desperate to placate James.   But teams know that CLE is dealing from a weakened stance and they won't get the kitchen sink.

I agree, at least for the moment while other teams are acutely aware of the situation and may try to lowball the Cavs.  Things could change before the trade deadline when playoff-bound teams understand their needs better, and getting Kyrie could be perceived as a move to get them over the top.

Had the same thought, but Cavs would need a PG in return, maybe in a 3-way trade.
