ESPN’s Pablo Torre co-hosted “First Take” Thursday morning alongside future co-host partner Bomani Jones, and he broke some major news on the program.

Torre, when talking about Cleveland Cavalier Kyrie Irving, said one of his sources informed him that Irving “very badly” wants to be a New York Knick.

This isn’t a huge surprise, as Irving listed the Knicks in his preferred destinations that include the Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat. The Knicks would also be a homecoming for Irving.

Still, finding a way to add Irving without giving up budding Knick superstar Kristaps Porzingis makes this possibility very unlikely.

It is interesting, though, and perhaps the longer this drags on, the asking price for Irving will go down and the Knicks will be in a position to add Irving without having to include Porzingis in a deal.
