No he didn’t. That’s revisionist history.
Kyrie has never had large trade value and he will never have large trade value.
You will never ever ever be able to trade him and get equal talent because of his psychological makeup and the fact that he’s a bad defender that is mostly a net neutral on the court until the closing moments of a game at which point he can consistently be relied upon to at least generate a shot if not make it.
I repeat... Kyrie has never had high trade value and he never will.
For what it’s worth, he wasn’t just willing to be traded to just any place either, FYI. Kyrie is not good enough to dump half your roster for without a promise of him staying. There are maybe 5 guys in the league that fit that bill and Kyrie isn’t close to being one of them.
