Cavs Rumors: Sources Reveal Specific Reason Kyrie Irving Wants to Join Knicks ‘Very Badly’

Kyrie Irving Cavs Knicks

On Thursday, ESPN’s Pablo Torre revealed that disgruntled Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has a deep desire to join the New York Knicks, and now it appears we know why.

That’s because Yahoo Sports’ Jordan Schultz took to Twitter to explain that Irving is very intrigued by the prospect of playing with Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis in head coach Jeff Hornacek‘s system, which would allow Irving to control the ball in a fast-paced offense.

It was also reported that one of the primary reasons Irving wants to leave the Cavaliers is because he wants to be the face of a franchise and no longer play in LeBron James‘ shadow. With the Knicks, Irving would have the opportunity to compete with Porzingis, a young and improving star, and be that face he so desperately desires.

It seems Irving’s intentions are clear, but what really matters in trade discussions going forward is what the Cavaliers want in return.
