Cavaliers reportedly tried trading Kyrie Irving before he asked to be moved

Across the National Basketball Association, only two players (Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James) now have more votes than Irving, and he's within shouting distance of both players. See what happens next.

James ended his media remarks with a throwaway line that didn't show the same level of confidence, however.

No formal offer was made by any of the teams, but news of this potential transaction stung Irving, who, sources close to him say, became convinced that LeBron [James]'s camp, which also represents Bledsoe, orchestrated the trade talks. "The [Thomas] injury affected them a lot".
