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.
