While trade rumors for Anthony Davis are hitting a peak right now, the Lakers still have heaps of cap flexibility and haven’t dialed back their hunt for a max salary free agent. Kyrie Irving was the Robin to LeBron’s Batman in Cleveland and the two have shown that at their best, they are a championship caliber duo.
Irving struggled with an injury his first year in Boston before putting up career numbers on a team that fell far short of expectations. With a roster that had a bit TOO heavy of a logjam, the Celtics were unable to find a cohesive rhythm throughout the season and as a result of the disappointing year, Irving seems to be looking for a new home. Brooklyn seems to be his preferred destination of choice, however, the Lakers still find themselves as the other destination that Irving seems to be considering at this time.
