The biggest news circulating around the NBA is the divide between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets. Even with the 2022 NBA Draft just days away, his future dominated headlines on Monday as the update was attention-grabbing. One of the biggest reports has linked the Los Angeles Lakers as a potential trade destination.
It has been rumored throughout the offseason that the Nets were not comfortable offering Irving a long-term contract. They have been unable to count on him being available throughout his tenure in Brooklyn, so their hesitancy to commit to him on a lucrative, multi-year contract is understandable.
Now, it has been revealed that there could be some exit plans already in place for the mercurial point guard. The Los Angeles Lakers, LA Clippers and New York Knicks are three potential landing spots that have been mentioned. It’s not a total surprise those are the mentioned landing spots as all three are big market teams with deep pockets.
