Kyrie Irving has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets.
The trade request comes after contract talks with the Nets did not go as desired.
Irving is on an expiring deal and is seeking a new home in free agency.
The Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks are potential suitors for Irving.
Phoenix is viewed as one of the few teams that can get a deal done with Brooklyn to keep both teams in pursuit of a championship.
James Jones, GM of the Suns, played with Irving on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Irving also has a relationship with Chris Paul, the point guard for the Suns.
Los Angeles Lakers are the first team to be linked with Irving because of his former teammate LeBron James.
The Lakers and Irving were linked in the offseason when both players were seeking new homes.
Kevin Durant's future with the Nets is also uncertain as he requested a trade before recommitting to the franchise last season.
