Kyrie Irving

The Brooklyn Nets appear destined to lose their top two stars this offseason after 12-time All-Star forward Kevin Durant requested a trade from the franchise last week. That was followed by reports that the team would also likely trade Kyrie Irving, with the Los Angeles Lakers emerging as the early favorites to land him in a potential Irving for Russell Westbrook-centered trade package.

While the Lakers still seem to be the favorites, two other teams have reportedly emerged to be interested in trading for Irving.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, Irving has “several suitors” and among those including the Lakers are the Dallas Mavericks and the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers being interested in Irving is especially intriguing considering Irving’s past with 76ers guard James Harden.

While the two were on the Nets together last season, it was reported that a big part of Harden being traded to the 76ers was because of his tumultuous relationship with Irving.

Many around the NBA world don’t see a potential reunion between Irving and Harden going well if they were to play together in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile many are interested to see a potential backcourt of Luka Dončić and Irving in Dallas, which would certainly make the Mavericks a must-watch team next year.

Irving to the Mavericks would seemingly be a great move for the Mavericks to fill the void of Jalen Brunson, who left this offseason to sign a massive contract with the New York Knicks.

It’s unclear exactly when the team will officially move Irving, but it certainly appears that they have a number of teams interested and that the Lakers may have some competition for a potential reunion between Irving and LeBron James next year.
