Well, according to Adam Kaufman, a beat reporter for the Boston Celtics, there's a slim chance Boston would consider trading their star free agent signing from 2017, but if they did, they better be ready to face the vast backlash.
Irving is eligible for an extension this summer but, even coming off another knee surgery that sidelined him for Boston's improbable run to the cusp of the Finals, was adamant that he'll wait for the summer of 2019 to examine his future.
Celtics fans have seen the best and worst moments of James' career up close in personal.
The Boston Celtics had high hopes entering the 2017-18 season but everything changed on opening night when star free agent acquisition Gordon Hayward was lost for the season with a gruesome leg injury just minutes into the new season.
However, Irving grew disgruntled in Cleveland. The big draft year for the Celtics could be next season, as they own the Philadelphia 76ers' (top 1 protected) or Sacramento Kings' (top 1 protected) pick, the Memphis Grizzlies (if it falls outside the top 8) and the Los Angeles Clippers pick (if it falls outside the top 14). Of course the teams would, it would save them tens of millions of dollars and get star players under control earlier. This is where general manager Danny Ainge would have to strip himself off all attachments to the marquee players on his roster as he did in sending Isaiah Thomas to the Cavaliers last offseason.
"That's the type of attitude and effort you love to be a part of", he said.
"For sure", Irving said. No doubt. There is no other player in the National Basketball Association capable of playing at the level James does.
Irving should probably be careful what he wishes for, because one question a day during the regular season would end up being a lot of questions by the end of the season.
Which team will LeBron James play for next season?
But, it's awfully tough to send Hayward away in a move like this without getting to see how he gels with the rest of this Celtics team.
