Storyline: Kyrie Irving to Heat?

5 rumors in this storyline

“It would help. I’m not against that,” Waiters said of a possible move by the Heat to acquire Irving. “Just know, there’s an alpha male over there too in myself. I think that’s the biggest thing with everybody – oh he’s got irrational confidence. Like I tell everybody man, I come from [Philadelphia]. If I can make it from here I can make it anywhere. My Mom got shot. My Dad got shot. Come on bro, ain’t nothing I ain’t ever seen. Why not? I need that confidence every day to get through. It’s got nothing to do with ball. It’s who I am. It was instilled in me. Just know there’s an alpha male over there already. [Irving] can come down and we can boogie together.”

The Miami Heat are willing to part with Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow as centerpieces for an Irving trade, league sources said. With the Cleveland-Miami history, there’s little chance for a deal unless the Heat offered an overwhelming package. Gilbert may have unwittingly thrust pressure onto Altman in a Wednesday news conference, declaring “Indiana could’ve done better” in its trade package for Paul George. The Cavaliers have more leverage in a deal because Irving has two years on his contract to George’s one.
