Cleveland reportedly wants a "blue-chip prospect" along with veterans that can keep them playing at a championship level and draft picks if they were to part with the four-time all star. Denver has all of those assets to offer if they do engage in trade talks with the Cavs.
In terms of fit, Miller, who knows Irving's game well, thinks it's a good one.
"I think it's perfect. If you can roll out Kyrie, Paul Millsap, and Joker[Nikola Jokic], and obviously, the other guys they have. They'll have to trade someone but you've got Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler's in there," Miller said. "You're a top-four team in the West."
The 17-year veteran also had some good perspective on Irving, his situation in Cleveland, and his relationship with LeBron James:
A lot of it's untrue. Obviously, Kyrie has made it clear that he'd like to get moved and would like to do some things but I think they're for different reasons than people think. And it's not about a relationship between Lebron and Kyrie going sour. I think they had an unbelievable run, three years, and won a championship together. There's some things that are true and some things that are not.
He's a smart kid, understands, works hard. It's another path. I think he's looking at a couple different things. This is not coming from him, it's a guess, just like anyone else, but I do know him pretty well, is that he's looking, does this Cleveland Cavalier team that's assembled right now, can they beat Golden State? And another thing he's looking at, is LeBron coming back next year?.....I think he's looking at those two things right now....He's trying to get ahead of the curve.
