Kyrie Irving has been itching to play with Anthony Davis 'for months'?

Kyrie Irving has been itching to play with Anthony Davis 'for months'? The reported trade of Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers could also lead to the addition of soon-to-be free agent Kyrie Irving. David Aldridge of The Athletic reported that his sources say Irving has been looking to team up with Davis “for months.” This ties nicely in with previous reports indicating Irving wasn’t adverse to the idea of once again teaming up with former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James — this time in Los Angeles. The Lakers have already seen a significant boost in expectations following the Davis trade and are now the heavy favorites to win the 2020 NBA Finals.

Less than three weeks before he enters free agency, Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving on Wednesday parted ways with longtime agent Jeff Wechsler, according to ESPN. Wechsler did not respond to a text message on Wednesday night.

ESPN said Irving is planning to sign with Roc Nation Sports, the agency with longtime connections to Warriors superstar Kevin Durant. Irving and Durant have reportedly expressed interest in playing together next season, although the ruptured Achilles’ tendon Durant suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday could cloud that matter somewhat.

Kyrie Irving tells Celtics' nation at an event at the TD Garden that he plans to re- sign with Boston. If Irving had signed an extension with Boston this past summer, he would have potentially left more than million on the table than if he waited and re- signed with the Celtics next summer.

Rich Kleiman, a longtime Roc Nation executive, has since branched off to form Thirty-Five Ventures, where he works almost exclusively with Durant. Durant is still listed on Roc Nation’s list of clients on its website, however.

Roc Nation Sports was founded in 2013 by the rapper Jay-Z, who then subsequently sold his minority stake in the Brooklyn Nets because NBA agents cannot be a part of NBA ownership groups. The Nets are expected to be among Irving’s suitors when free agency begins on June 30.

Wechsler had represented Irving since his rookie year in 2011 and was instrumental in building Irving’s “Uncle Drew” brand that morphed from a Pepsi commercial to a feature film last summer. He also represents Celtics forward Jayson Tatum.
