Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving and Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell are two of the best players who may become available this offseason, and the latter is apparently open to teaming up with the former.
As NBA Central shared, Russell liked an Instagram post of his Nets jersey next to a custom one for Irving:

This comes after Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Irving parted ways with longtime agent Jeff Wechsler and noted he is expected to partner with Roc Nation Sports.
Jay-Z, who once held an ownership stake in the Nets, founded Roc Nation Sports, so connections can be made with this move. What's more, Wojnarowski reported Irving has previously discussed the possibility of teaming up with Kevin Durant in Brooklyn.
