Kyrie Irving to Lakers? Top 5 options after trade request

(BVM) – Kyrie Irving has reportedly requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets and expects to be dealt before the Feb. 9 NBA trade deadline. The news comes just eight days after Irving, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, was selected as a starter for the 2023 All-Star Game while averaging 27.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists (one of just eight players averaging at least 25-5-5 this season).

It’s a tough break for the Nets (31-20) who entered the day entrenched in the Eastern Conference playoff race with the fourth seed. It also marks the third trade request Brooklyn has weathered in the last two seasons after James Harden got his wish on trade deadline day during the 2021-22 campaign (Kevin Durant rescinded his).

Irving and the Nets reportedly had recent talks of an extension before the two sides were unable to come to an agreement. The result was Friday’s trade request and now, the 30-year-old guard will likely be headed elsewhere.

Here are the top five landing spots for Irving to realistically land.
