Derrick Rose has been in contact with Chicago Bulls

Derrick Rose has been in contact with Chicago Bulls”

The idea of the Cavaliers adding Rose on a team-friendly deal to pair him with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love makes sense. Other teams Irving said he'd be willing to join were the New York Knicks, Miami and Minnesota.

ESPN.com first reported the request.

Irving's request to leave a team with the best player in the world and being the point guard of a perennial championship contender may be peculiar, but given the uncertainty surrounding the Cavs and LeBron's future, making a move now may not be so insane in the long-term. "We are respectfully going to keep those private".

The meeting with Cavs' management was within the last couple of weeks, though it's unclear exactly when.

Kyrie Irving wants the stage for himself.

"We just have to, you know, make sure that all our pieces are aligned first, and then we go from there", Irving told the magazine.

James, according to two sources, had no idea that Irving was unhappy with his role this past season or wanted out of Cleveland. The Lakers can extend Rose a more lucrative offer than Cleveland, and those two seem to be the two favorites to sign Rose, while there hasn't been much news out of Milwaukee after he was connected to the Bucks last week.

Altman has been with the Cavs since 2012 and had worked as David Griffin's assistant since after the 2016 title season.

The request came last week and was made to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.

The Sporting News reported that the Cavaliers were considering a three-team deal that would send Kyrie to the Knicks for Carmelo Anthony.

Irving signed a five-year, $94.3 million max rookie extension in January, 2014. The team has talked to Rose about a one-year contract in recent days, a source familiar with the negotiations told the AP on Thursday. When Irving signed that deal, both he and the Cavaliers envisioned his being the face of the franchise for years to come. Ultimately, this move could be to satisfy LeBron James.

Yet that, apparently, is no longer enough.

But while the National Basketball Association trade rumors of a Carmelo Anthony for Kyrie Irving swap heat up, there are other reports that Anthony still has his eyes on the Rockets. This summer is obviously a huge turning point for the organization, and they need to make a smart decision.
