Kyrie Irving, a star player for the Brooklyn Nets, has requested a trade.

He is set to become a free agent this summer.

Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, and Dallas Mavericks have shown interest in acquiring Irving.

Irving has not provided a list of preferred teams, but wants to be traded to a team that will sign him to an extension.

The Nets were reluctant to sign a long-term contract with Irving due to concerns about his reliability and behavior.

Irving is seeking a four-year, $198.5 million contract extension.

If he is traded, he can sign a two-year, $78.6 million extension with his new team.

Teams like the Lakers and Mavericks are considering an Irving deal, but are cautious about signing him to a long-term contract.

The Phoenix Suns have a good roster and may offer the best trade scenario for Brooklyn.

The trade request has sparked interest in how it will impact Kevin Durant's future with the Nets.
