Kyrie Irving

In his weekly chat on, NBA Insider Chad Ford said on Thursday that he’s hearing Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving wants out. Ford also talked about how GM Chris Grant is on the hot seat and how the team needs to turn it around. That part isn’t really news, the Irving info is.

This was what Ford said when asked about whether or not Cavs brass was on the hot seat, and how active they’d be at the trading deadline.

Virtually every GM in the league believes that Grant will be gone this summer if things don’t get turned around this season. He doesn’t have much time. The thinking is that there’s no way Dan Gilbert is going to let him make another lottery pick if that’s the direction the Cavs end up heading. Grant’s goal (via his owner) is to get this team competitive and into the playoffs.
