It's no secret Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving are interested in a reunion, and the two could link up sooner rather than later with the NBA's Feb. 9 trade deadline coming up.

James is "an immense proponent of making a deal for his former Cavaliers teammate and the Lakers are operating as a motivated suitor for Irving," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Irving reportedly requested a trade from the Nets on Friday after the two sides failed to come to an agreement on a new deal.

While Irving and James are possibly hoping for a reunion, the Nets will also likely take the best offer they receive for the veteran point guard, whether that be from the Lakers or someone else.

Irving opted in to the final year of his contract with the Nets during the offseason. If they don't trade him, they'll risk losing him for nothing in free agency this summer.
