Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant isn’t surprised by the developments of Kyrie Irving wanting out of Cleveland, and out of the shadows of LeBron James.

Trade requests occur routinely behind the scenes without anyone knowing, Durant said.

“It’s just a regular NBA problem, right? A lot of teams have gone through this before,” Durant told ESPN. “They’ll figure it out. That’s a great organization, a championship organization. They’ll figure it out.”

James and Irving haven’t communicated since the request was made in July. Two alpha males on the same team not getting along isn’t new territory. The Cavaliers seek young assets in return for Irving, but newly hired general manager Koby Altman will be patient and is willing to extend the asset search into the regular season.
