Cavs, Knicks discussing potential Kyrie Irving-Carmelo Anthony deal

It’s looking like Cleveland’s Big 3 may not involve Kyrie Irving next season.

The Cavaliers are reportedly considering a three-team trade that would send Irving to the Knicks in exchange for Carmelo Anthony, according to Yahoo Sports. Initial reports suggest the third team involved may be the Suns. An ESPN report suggested the Knicks would also send future first-rounders to Cleveland in order to get rid of Anthony get Irving.

An unidentified source told the Post that Joe Tsai, executive VP of the Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, is among those expressing interest, though his representatives denied that to the Post.

Nets representatives reportedly had 20 meetings lined up last month in China after Prokhorov’s failed attempts to sell a minority stake in the team.

Allen & Co., the investment bank, hasn’t circulated a sale book yet, according to the Post, but Prokhorov has said that he’s hopeful the majority ownership stake in the team that he took over in 2010 would fetch $2 billion.

The Nets were valued at $1.8 billion by Forbes in its latest ranking of teams, seventh on the list and just ahead of the Rockets, who also are for sale.

As crazy as turning a 6-10 power forward into a point guard might sound, Griffin has been one of the best passing big men in the NBA for most of his career.

Griffin then finished behind five forwards in assists per game in 2015-16 and 2016-17.
