Kyrie Irving: Cavs ‘in a Very Peculiar Place … We Have a Great Owner'

It's been an interesting offseason for the Cavaliers.

On Monday, a report surfaced that LeBron James is frustrated with ownership/management and is concerned about Cleveland's ability to compete with the Warriors.

Then on Tuesday night, Kyrie Irving spoke to Sports Illustrated.

"I understand we're in a very peculiar place," Irving said. "We just have to make sure that all our pieces are aligned first and then we go from there. It's the summer time, a lot of craziness going on in the NBA.

"Best to just observe and then see what happens. But obviously there are some things I'm pretty sure our organization wants to do, and we'll go from there."

Irving was then asked how different the Cavs may look in a couple years.

"Like I said, we're in a peculiar place," Irving answered. "The best thing we can do is handle things with class and professionalism. Obviously we have a great owner that's willing to spend a little money on guys that he believes in.

"At this point, we just see what happens throughout the summer."

LeBron can become a free agent next summer, and Kyrie can hit the open market in July 2019.

Kevin Love -- who reportedly was on the trade block recently -- can also opt out of his deal in the summer of 2019.

Oh, and the Cavs still don't have a general manager...
