Cavs Irving Rebuts Talks of Him Wanting Out of Cleveland


Following the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 100-96 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday that snapped a two-game losing streak, guard Kyrie Irving responded to remarks by ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith that Irving was unhappy playing for the Cavs. Earlier Monday, Smith, speaking on ESPN’s First Take, said the 23-year-old Irving would prefer to be out of Cleveland and suit up for another franchise.

“There’s nothing to really address,” Irving said after putting up 22 points, six assists and an 11-for-11 mark from the free throw line against the Pacers. “Obviously there’s going to be some misunderstandings; it’s part of being on a team”.
