Cavs Rumors: Clippers Willing to Part With Patrick Beverley and DeAndre Jordan for Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving and Patrick Beverley

The Kyrie Irving sweepstakes continues.

After a week that was filled with numerous rumors and reports of trade proposals, the options available to the Cleveland Cavaliers have started to become more and more clear.

According to a source close to Eric Rosenthal, the Los Angeles Clippers have made it known that they are willing to deal All-Star DeAndre Jordan and recently acquired point guard Patrick Beverley in exchange for Irving.

Rosenthal continued to describe some of the particulars of a potential trade, adding that the Clippers wouldn’t be able to include Beverley in a multi-trade deal until late August, but that his current two-year, $10.54 million contract would be highly attractive to the Cavaliers.

Rosenthal even included the interesting fact that Irving could have been a Clipper in 2011, but the first overall draft pick they would have used on him was sent to the Cavs in a deal to rid themselves of Baron Davis.

As it stands, this is still nothing more than a rumor, but it’s another sign of just how badly Irving’s talent is coveted by many of the teams in the NBA.
