Raptors Contacted Cavs About Kyrie Irving

by August 16, 2017

The Toronto Raptors’ front-office did their “due diligence” and contacted the Cleveland Cavaliers about Kyrie Irving‘s availability this summer.

Raptors GM Bobby Webster said his franchise would be “remiss not to call.”

Toronto re-upped with All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry on a three-year, $100 million pact.

Per Sporting News (via TSN 1050 Radio):

“Definitely,” Webster said. “We all do our due diligence. Things don’t always make sense, but if they do we’re always prepared.”


“That’s a lot of talk that we do, that doesn’t really see the light of day that happens behind closed doors,” Webster added.


“When a player like that becomes available you’d be remiss not to call.”
