CLEVELAND (WCMH) — Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving has asked the team to trade him, league sources tell ESPN.

The request was made last week to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, the sources said, adding that LeBron James was “blindsided and disappointed” by the news.

Irving has been with the Cavs since 2011. His agent would not confirm or deny the rumor, ESPN reports. 

The Cavs parted ways with general manager David Griffin last month.
