According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, Irving recently requested a trade and no longer has interest in teaming with LeBron James.
Windhorst added that Irving mentioned the San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat as teams he would have interest in getting traded to.
Lowe mentioned that Boston could be a strong trade partner for Cleveland since it has the ability to offer several intriguing assets, including a potential package of guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder and any number of possible high, first-round draft picks.
The 25-year-old Irving is coming off a career year that saw him average 25.2 points, 5.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game.

He also excelled in the playoffs to the tune of 25.9 points, 5.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per contest.
Irving has been named an All-Star in four of his six NBA seasons, and his resume is among the NBA's best since entering the league as the No. 1 overall pick in 2011.
He is a former Rookie of the Year, All-NBA First Team selection, NBA All-Star Game MVP and NBA champion.
The Celtics finished first in the Eastern Conference during the 2016-17 regular season ahead of Cleveland, and they added a major free-agent signing in swingman Gordon Hayward this offseason.
Provided Boston can find a way to add Irving to a core that includes Hayward and big man Al Horford, it may be able to close the gap on Cleveland's Eastern Conference dominance.
