Kyrie Irving had an amazing NBA season, even though his team Boston Celtics was not performing well. The 27-year-old point guard for Boston Celtics was one of the breakthrough players of NBA 2018-19 season. Irving had wonderful stats, with 23.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game and a shooting score of 48.7/40.1/87.3.
While the Boston Celtics team constantly let him down, Irving is on the path to be a free agent. All the top NBA teams are ready to make a trade for Kyrie Irving, and here are the five teams in which he could be a future player.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks were one of the worst performers of the last NBA season and are planning to change their whole team. Knicks were also the top earner last year with around $4 billion from various sources, but what matters is that they have $70 million in their cap space. Kevin Durant is also being eyed by the New York Knicks, and landing the 2 biggest star player could bring the team back in the game.
Brooklyn Nets is one of the most stable teams in the NBA, yet there are high chances that they end up with Irvin for the next season. D’Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe from Brooklyn Nets are planning to a free agent this season, which makes a lot of top spots open. The Brooklyn Nets should use this trade-off to get Kyrie Irving and reach for the NBA finals next season.
Los Angeles Lakers
While LeBron James is the star player for the Los Angeles Lakers, he is planning to take a break from the game for some time. It is the reason why the Lakers are trying to get Irvin in their team. Earlier it was not possible because James and Irvin were not on talking terms, but now they have solved everything and the duo would do great on the basketball field. Meanwhile, LA Lakers are also eyeing for Anthony Davis, and the big three James, Irving and Davis still sounds a dream for Lakers.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Clippers has more chances than the Lakers to bring Kyrie Irving in their squad. The Clippers are currently having $52 million in cap space and could open up more by trading Danilo Gallinari. It is rumored that the LA Clippers would try to pair Irving with NBA 2019 finals MVP, Kawhi Leonard. The duo would be deadly and along with other names like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Landry Shamet, Los Angeles Clippers has high chances to be the top West cost team.
Boston Celtics to Retain
While the chances look very low, it is also possible that Boston Celtics might resign Kyrie Irving in the start of July. To be honest, it would be in the benefit of both Celtics and Irving. The Boston Celtics could trade off some other player to bring in Anthony Davis which might somehow compel Kyrie Irvin to stay in the team.
