Latest NBA reports claimed that David Griffin, the former general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers already gave his opinion regarding the possible trade of Kyrie Irving. When he appeared on "The Jump", Griffin did not hesitate to say that Irving might be traded.

According to Yahoo Sports, David Griffin did not disappoint the fans when he was asked about Kyrie Irving's future in the league. He said that Kyrie is going to end up being traded. It can be recalled that the General Manager parted ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers last June just because of a contract dispute.

Meanwhile, Kyrie Irving reportedly requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers since he is no longer interested to play in the shadow of Lebron James. With regards to where that question came, it was revealed on ESPN before that Irving was the one who approached the team owner Dan Gilbert in the middle of July.

After that, some reports came out regarding the request of Kyrie Irving and some fans were waiting if this will happen. In fact, a report from NBA also mentioned a source which indicated that Irving was the first one who seeks a trade prior to the NBA draft.

It was also reported on Bleacher Report that it was the Cleveland Cavaliers which decided not to renew David Griffin's contract anymore last June 19 and this was just three days before the draft. The reports mentioned that Griffin was asking Chicago Bulls wing, Jimmy Butler if the latter is interested in joining the Cavaliers with some help from James and Irving.

Then David Griffin was asked what he will do if he was still in the Cavaliers when Irving made his intentions known. With this, he gave his insight regarding the decision of Irving and defended the player against criticism from former Cavs point guard Ron Harper. It can be recalled that Harper remarked about the issue and blamed ignorance and youth for the trade request.

If the trade is happening, sports analysts are still clueless with regards to the possible team Kyrie Irving wants to be traded. But with David Griffin offering inside information, it looks like Irving thinks he can be happier somewhere else.
