How did Kyrie Irving Perform in the 2022-23 season?
Kyrie started the season with Brooklyn Nets, where he scored at an average of 27.1 points in 40 games. He scored 1084 points for the Nets before moving to the Dallas Mavericks.
With Mavericks, Irving maintained his performance and scored 539 points in 20 games he played for them, with an average of 27 points per game.
Which is the most probable destination for Kyrie Irving?
Irving’s arrival would require a sign-and-trade for most of the teams. This might also be seen as a favor to Kyrie rather than actually wanting to sign the American star.
Rockets might look up to Irving if they miss out on their other targets. They have a keen interest in VanVleet, but if they fail to sign him, Irving will be their best available option.
Signing with the Lakers and Clippers would be great for both teams. Houston may also try to sign the former Rookie of the Year.

What is the Dallas Mavericks’ situation with Kyrie Irving?
Generally, meetings are a decoy to get better long-term deals and this might be the case this time as well. Irving will probably consider re-signing the deal, but the 31-year-old has injury concerns and has been the center of controversies which might affect the deal. Dallas Mavericks might consider looking for other options if the two parties fail to find a middle ground.
It is for sure that Kyrie Irving has a lot to think over and decide, and nothing can be said about his final destination yet. It’ll be fun to see where the American ends up.
