The NBA trade deadline is quickly approaching, and rumors are swirling around Kyrie Irving and his future. According to a recent report from CBS Sports, the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks have been reluctant to commit to a long-term deal with the mercurial star.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith discussed potential trade suitors for Kyrie Irving and his reaction to the trade request. He believes the Mavericks could be a potential landing spot, but it’s uncertain whether they would be willing to commit to a long-term deal.
Tristan Thompson reportedly texted Kyrie Irving about reuniting on the Lakers, but that appears to be unlikely. Irving has asked the Brooklyn Nets for a trade ahead of the deadline, according to ESPN.
The NBA trade deadline is February 6th, and it remains to be seen where Kyrie Irving will end up. For more information, view full coverage on USNN.
