Back in October, it was reported that the Brooklyn Nets were listening to trade calls for point guard Kyrie Irving. More recently, a report from Ian Begley stated that they still are.

Irving has yet to take the court for the Nets this season, as he refuses to get the COVID vaccine. The Nets have said that he is not permitted to be with the team as long as that is the case.

Now, the team has faired well without him, and currently sits at the number one spot in the Eastern Conference. However, it’s hard to argue that they wouldn’t be better if Irving were around.

So, if the Nets get impatient with Irving, what are some NBA trades they could pull off to add more talent? What are some deals that could get done?

Before that, though, it’s important to note that not all of these trades will reflect the value of Irving. These NBA trades would likely only happen if the Nets are sick of dealing with him and his value tanks even further.

NBA Trades for the Brooklyn Nets to get rid of Kyrie Irving: Denver Nuggets

Nets receive: Will Barton, Monte Morris, Jamychal Green, 2024 First-Round Pick

Nuggets receive: Kyrie Irving

This trade is likely the most unrealistic of the bunch considering Jamal Murray will (hopefully) be back next season, but he could potentially run the shooting guard, right?

With the slew of injuries Denver is dealing with, adding Kyrie Irving could make them lethal. The combo or Irving and Nikola Jokic would be one of the best in the NBA.

Brooklyn would be getting three quality rotation players who would improve their team as a whole, with Will Barton being the best of the bunch.

However, this would seriously deplete Denver’s depth for this season. They’d be in great shape for next season and beyond, though, with a core of Jokic, Irving, and Murray.
