Irving is averaging 23.8 points and the Celtics want to keep him as fresh as possible going into the postseason. The Celtics have lost four straight and are fifth in the Eastern Conference entering Tuesday night's game in Cleveland. Irving played his first six seasons with Cleveland. The six-time All-Star demanded a trade following the 2016-17 season and was dealt to Boston. He hasn't played in Cleveland since the 2017-18 opener.

It’s no longer a pipe dream. There’s now a chance that LeBron James and Kyrie Irving link up in Los Angeles as Lakers teammates.

With Bryant being an impending free agent, it was previously reported that he had not closed the door on the possibility of rejoining his former championship teammate.

Now comes this note from ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith indicating that Irving will indeed give the Lakers a free agent meeting this coming summer.

“I’m told Kyrie Irving will grant the Lakers an interview this offseason,” Smith said on ESPN’s First Take. “The Lakers will have an opportunity to get Kyrie Irving to come to LA. I didn’t say he’s coming to LA. I did not say that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do.”

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving reportedly talk or text every day

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving reportedly talk or text every day There's speculation that the friendship between Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could play a huge role in the upcoming wave of free agency. The fact that the two superstars are said to be in daily contact has led to suspicion there may be something big brewing between the two pals. During a recent episode of “The Hoop Collective” podcast, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported Durant and Irving are in nearly constant communication. “I’ve had someone reputable this week tell me their relationship is as strong as ever, that Durant and Kyrie talk every day and, if not, text every day,” Windhorst said.

Closing up shop on what has been a disappointing season, the Lakers have cap room for two max-contract free agents. We previously looked at a few options. However, none of those players included a point guard of Irving’s ilk.

Los Angeles seems to be in good hands with Rajon Rondo at the point. He meshes well with LeBron. But  Irving would clearly be a dramatic upgrade.

With Irving currently a member of the Celtics, whispers are that Irving will leave Boston in free agency. Most of the talk has surrounded the possibility of him teaming up with Kevin Durant as a member of the Knicks. This could throw some hot water on that idea.
