Kyrie Irving Says Cavs Are In A “Peculiar Place”

LOS ANGELES– Kyrie Irving attended Sports Illustrated’s Fashionable 50 event last night, and took some time to talk Cavaliers’ free agency.

Irving described the Cavs as being “in a peculiar place,” when asked by Sports Illustrated how different his team could look in the next couple of years.

“Like I said, we’re in a peculiar place,” Irving said.

“The best thing we can do is handle things with class and professionalism. Obviously we have a great owner that’s willing to spend a little money on guys that he believes in. At this point, we just see what happens throughout the summer.”

Free agency has obviously been less than stellar for the Cavs, who still do not have a general manager after parting ways with David Griffin. The Cavs also missed out on acquiring Paul George and Jimmy Butler.

As a result, rumors have surfaced that James, who is scheduled to become a free agent following the 2017-18 season, has become frustrated with the Cavs’ moves (or lack thereof) this summer. These rumors further fuel the speculation that James will leave Cleveland in 2018.
