Nuggets Won’t Include Gary Harris And Jamal Murray In Deal For Kyrie Irving

As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue to search for a major haul in return for point guard Kyrie Irving on the trade market teams are making it clear what they are willing to give Cleveland in return.

It’s not exactly what the Cavs were hoping for especially in relation to the Denver Nuggets.

According to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Nuggets are considered one of the teams with the assets to intrigue the Cavs and mentioned a potential 3-team swap that would include the Phoenix Suns, but noted that Denver is hesitant to move Gary Harris and Jamal Murray in a deal.

Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon reported that the Cavs have been looking for a return of “a veteran starter, a blue chipper on a rookie contract and a first-round pick” in any deal for Irving.

Harris averaged 14.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists for Denver last season while Murray posted 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

Both players are important pieces of a young Nuggets core that also features Nikola Jokic, Juan Hernangomez and Emmanuel Mudiay.

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”

Cavs’ JR Smith Requests Trade

Published

Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith is looking to get traded from the team, as he is upset with his playing time this season.

“Yeah,” Smith, 33, said when asked about requesting a trade, according to ESPN.

“They know. They don’t want me here, so they obviously know.”

Smith is earning $14.7 million this season, and is in his 15th year in the league, and at age 33, he may not be an attractive trade piece for even contending teams looking for veteran depth down the stretch.

Cleveland has been gauging the market for Kyle Korver, looking to trade him as soon as possible.
