Report: LeBron James Denies Reaching Out To Suns In Irving Trade Talks

Cleveland– Not a day goes by in Cleveland where there aren’t multiple conflicting reports about the Cavaliers’ potential Kyrie Irving trade.

Today is no different.

A “source close to James” is now denying a earlier report from ESPN’s Pablo Torre that James was “hustling behind the scenes” to see if the Phoenix Suns had interest in trading Josh Jackson for Irving.

The report was not out of the realm of possibility, given James’ close relationship with the Suns’ vice president of basketball operations and former Cavaliers teammate, James Jones.

Numerous other reports have stated, however, that Jackson is in fact off the table in all Suns’ trade talks.

James also made headlines after inviting Phoenix’s Eric Bledsoe to a workout with himself and Derrick Rose in Las Vegas.

    Just a heads up Ashley. Sam Amico has reported that Jackson is on the table. I don’t know if he is or isn’t. Just letting you know about a contrary “source”.
