(AP/WJW) — Former Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving got his wish and was traded by the Brooklyn Nets to the Dallas Mavericks, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press Sunday.

The Mavericks will trade Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and a draft package to the Nets, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced a move.

In turn, Dallas will have another star-level player paired with MVP candidate Luka Doncic.

The move came just days after Irving told the Nets he wanted a trade. He was not with Brooklyn for Saturday night’s game, as the team said he was injured and was released from the arena.

It also ends a tumultuous sojourn in Brooklyn.

Irving signed with his hometown team in 2019 in hopes of winning the title by playing alongside Kevin Durant.

But one saga followed another, as evidenced by having to miss almost the entire home schedule last season due to his refusal to vaccinate against COVID-19, as well as an eight-game suspension earlier this season after the team stated that she was dismayed by his repeated failure. “to say in no uncertain terms that he has no anti-Semitic beliefs” after he posted a link to the film on Twitter.

Now 30, he played for the Cavs from 2011 to 2017 and was instrumental in bringing home the NBA championship in 2016.
