off the cuff some Irving trades that in theory make sense
Irving for Paul, Crowder
Irving, Mills for Westbrook, the picks
Irving for Powell, Covington, Coffey
Irving for Russell
Irving for Hardaway, Bertans, 1st
I was just thinking of the CP3 for Kyrie one. That could work for both sides. Give them some fresh blood / new hope. Both teams could use that.
I love the D'Angelo Russell idea. I hadn't thought of that. Former Nets player. They know him & they like him. He is young and looking for a long term commitment. Brooklyn get a PG they can build around next to Durant for the next 5 years unlike with Kyrie who may walk at the end of the season. That is a good swap for BKN.
Minnesota meanwhile has had a disappointing season. Kyrie is a big name. A big time shooter. An interesting fit next to Towns, Gobert and Edwards. That is a major Big 4 to build around.
