HThere are common opinions among the leading experts on the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers are the main team in the search for the star that seems to have opened a window to go on the market: Kyrie Irving. The ‘point-guard’ of the Brooklyn Nets still hasn’t taken the step to sign his continuity or not with the franchise of the Long Island, and its renovation went into a ‘tunnel’. From there, gold and purple want to take advantage.
Because the Lakers need like eating a player who takes the step to lead alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. In view of the results, it is that Russell Westbrook was not in 2021-22, and his contract of more than 40 million dollars is another reason that puts him in the ‘picota’. And there’s LeBron James, who had his best partner in Irving on the Cavs. He would obviously be delighted to have you back.
As reported by Marc Stein, there had even been meetings between Kyrie Irving and LeBeon James. In Hollywood they discussed the future, although they do not dare to firmly ensure that the future of the Australian is bathed in gold and purple. And in the same line of opinion is the great market guru, Adrian Wojnarowski, who places the Los Angeles franchise as the most interested in Irving.
But, really, it would not be a complex operation. The Lakers don’t have a lot of resources to offer the Nets to be able to take Irving. Yes, it has the ‘Player Option’‘ as a form of pressure, but it sounds quite illogical to think that they would give up signing contracts for less than 30 ‘kilos’. The accounts of the Lakers could go through sending to Russell Westbrook, Talen Horton-Tucker or Kendrik Nunn. Or, a sign-and-trade by the Aussie after signing that $246 million high to be traded for Westbrook.
And if the Nets ‘release’ Irving there would be another directly related figure: Kevin Durant. They’re best friends, they signed together for the East Coast team and… I wouldn’t be very happy with the Australian leaving. And rumors are beginning to emerge with a possible exit if Irving decides to leave.
