Irving is currently in the final year of the five-year, $94 million contract that he signed with Cleveland before the 2015-16 season. Last Summer Irving demanded a trade from the Cavilers. He then joined Boston in a trade from the Cavaliers last August, but his season ended in March due to a knee injury.
