Irving reportedly requested a trade from the Cavs during a meeting with management on July 7.
The four-time All-Star would prefer to be shipped to the Spurs, Timberwolves, Heat or Knicks, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Although Irving was born in Australia, he grew up in West Orange, New Jersey -- which is about 20 miles away from Madison Square Garden.
The Cavs have been trying to get a hold of Irving, but the 25-year old is not talking to anybody from the organization, according to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.
Irving averaged 25.2 points and 5.8 assists per game last season, shooting over 47 percent from the field and 40 percent from deep.
In the 2017 NBA Finals, he registered 29.4 points over the five games.
The Knicks owe Joakim Noah over $17.7 million next season, over $18.5 million in 2018-19 and nearly $19.3 million in 2019-20.
The Knicks also just signed Tim Hardaway Jr. (who they traded in June 2015) to a 4-year contract worth nearly $71 million.

The Warriors made a move on Thursday.
Golden State agreed to terms on a training camp invite with Antonius Cleveland, NBC Sports Bay Area has learned.
As a senior at Southeast Missouri State last year, Cleveland averaged 16.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
He shot over 54 percent from the field and over 38 percent from 3-point territory (28 for 73).
The 6'6" guard played for the Portland Trail Blazers during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
Over six games, he averaged 5.8 points.
If Cleveland doesn't nab the 15th roster spot with Golden State, he could end up with the Santa Cruz Warriors as an affiliate player.
ESPN's Ian Begley first reported Cleveland's deal with the Warriors.
Great move by GSW. Not easy to find wings with size, length and two-way potential. Big fan of Antonius Cleveland's. https://t.co/uso89ARFHw— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) July 27, 2017
