Since, he left the Cleveland Cavaliers, Irving has moved twice. He’s played for three teams in the span of six years. Irving is arguably a top-five point guard in the active NBA. His ball-handling skills are better than any active point guard.

Things didn’t work out in Brooklyn the way that he and Kevin Durant wanted them to go. There were no championships won and it ended with both players being traded. After he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, they went 8-12 and missed out on the playoffs. The reports that he was going to meet with the Suns were rather interesting because that meant Kyrie Irving would have to sign the veteran minimum. Phoenix could not execute a sign-and-trade due to being over the second tax apron, which also means they don’t have access to the Taxpayer MLE’s.

For now though, Kyrie Irving is staying in Dallas on a three year, $126 million deal.
