With the Brooklyn Nets on the verge of implosion, teams around the association are starting to smell blood in the water.
According to multiple league sources, Irving's future with the Nets has fallen under doubt, and his relationship with Kevin Durant may not be all it has been cracked up to be.
Now, there is a sense Irving could be available for the taking and the Miami Heat are making sure to follow the whole situation.
In fact, according to Marc Stein, the Heat could become serious contenders for Uncle Drew if he officially hits the trade market.
"Yet we should also file this away for potential down-the-road relevance: Miami is believed to have some level of interest in joining the chase for Irving — should the Nets reach the point of actively
trying to trade him — and would figure to be a more legitimate landing spot than the teams initially mentioned given the Heat’s various trade assets.
In the right situation, Kyrie could really thrive. Playing alongside Jimmy Butler and Erik Spoelstra in a notoriously disciplined culture could be all Irving needs to revert back to his Cleveland ways.
It would do wonders for the Heat, who appear to be just one piece away from true title contention.
