Kyrie Irving has a list of teams he’d like to consider at sign-and-trades

Adrian Wojnarowski: ESPN Sources: If Kyrie Irving can’t come to an agreement to stay with Brooklyn, he has a list of teams he’d like to consider at sign-and-trades, including Lakers, Clippers, Knicks, Heat, Mavs and 76ers. None of those teams have cap space to capture him without Nets’ help. Those are teams Irving is interested in, but he’s not necessarily a priority for all teams, sources said.

Kyrie being swapped with the Sixers and KD being swapped with the Warriors would be by far the funniest outcome – 16:31

I think the Nets are going to figure this out. I think Durant, Kyrie and Simmons will be in the opening day lineup.
But if they don’t, this will instantly become one of the greatest disasters in roster history. To go from favorites to this in ONE YEAR is unheard of. † 4:29 PM

Kevin Durant keeps an eye on the Brooklyn Nets’ situation and considers options with his future. Kyrie Irving will be leaving the Nets this summer and everything is going to change for the franchise. Nothing will be the same in Brooklyn #NetsWorld

Personally find it all too convenient that the 2 top insiders reported at the same time that it was much more than a threat to BKN.
But Kyrie must be the only in-prime star whose risk trumps reward? † 4:24 PM

If you like drama, conspiracy theories and the occasional disappearance, as well as a great security guard, Kyrie Irving is for you. Let’s take a look at Daryl Morey. † 4:22 p.m.

We noted earlier this week that people around Kyrie Irving have seen NYK as a potential destination should things go awry in his negotiations with BKN; @Adrian Wojnarowski reports that NYK is one of the teams Irving wants BKN to consider sign-&-trades in that scenario: on.sny.tv/gv3roJd – 16:21

I wrote earlier this week about the Knicks’ route to taking over Kyrie Irving, if they want to sign him.
They’re over the limit today, but they don’t need to sign and trade to bring in Kyrie. There are moves that can open maximum space.

The idea of ​​Brooklyn trading Kyrie to Philly to get Harden back after demanding Brooklyn go to Philly is so funny that I refuse to acknowledge how utterly insane and improbable it is. † 16:19

Intriguing leverage here by Kyrie/KD to get Irving his maximum deal with the Nets. We’ll see if Sean Marks blinks first, even though he’s holding the most cards. Durant is signed until 2025-26 and Kyrie can’t go anywhere he wants in free agency without the help of Nets. † 4.18 pm

Great viewer commentary on the @LockedOnLakers YouTube page! AK @LockedOnNBAPods
“LeBron’s GOAT case gets significantly stronger as he persuades Kyrie to take a massive pay cut to get back to work. No one would accept such a pay cut to be abused by Jordan on a daily basis.” – 13:57 o’clock

Kyrie Irving is suddenly, perhaps available, but disciplined teams with structure and a clear identity know better than to chase him. That makes the Lakers its ideal landing place. theathletic.com/3379101/2022/0… – 12:06

Where I say – with gritted teeth – that the Lakers should chase Kyrie Irving if he’s really available, but only because they’ve holed up in such a corner that they can’t afford to ask themselves the most important questions. theathletic.com/3379101/2022/0… – 8:27 pm

Things Kyrie must do to join the Lakers:
— Leave his hometown
— Leave his best friend
— Leave $30 million on the table

The Pistons could now break Twitter by absorbing Russell Westbrook with their new cap space.
Take the 27/29 firsts and help the Lakers clear the way for Kyrie lmao. No Pistons fan will get on with it, but it would be tantamount to trading Grant and room for three first. † 18:12

More about this storyline

Shams Charania: Sources: Kevin Durant keeps an eye on the situation of the Brooklyn Nets and considers options for his future. This now opens the way for Kyrie Irving to continue to find a new home through opt-in and trading. -through Twitter @ShamsCharania / June 23, 2022

The rumblings of Irving’s interest in the Lakers began when The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Monday that Irving was deadlocked in extension talks with the Brooklyn Nets. Even if this all turns out to be a smokescreen to shake off a long-standing Brooklyn commitment, the Lakers’ stance on this remains the most interesting. The question of whether they even want Irving is a statement in itself. Taking on Irving and everything that comes with it is hardly a good idea for most teams in the NBA. Many teams would politely decline. Not the Lakers. It couldn’t be. -via The Athletic / June 23, 2022

Then there’s the smallest sample-sized theater. James Wiseman played all 69 minutes at Memphis, while Darius Garland played five games at Vanderbilt. It is known that Kyrie Irving only played 11 games at Duke. Shaedon Sharpe, the top contender for 2022, has not played a single game for Kentucky this season. An executive said he was burned by an overly cautious medical staff who raised red flags that prevented him from selecting a first-round prospect. Many believe that training, which is more controlled by cops than ever, is overrated, as is performance in the NCAA tournament (see Williams, Derrick and Flynn, Jonny). Combining results can be tempting, although scouts and executives feel that the competition has made a proper correction on a traditional fetish – ‘athletics’. But at the same time, some say the swing toward “basketball IQ” has changed so dramatically in recent years that teams may look up to find that they don’t have the punch needed to compete. —via ESPN / June 23, 2022
