According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, upcoming free agent Kyrie Irving is considering re-uniting with LeBron James and joining him on the Lakers next season.
The two played together for three seasons in Cleveland, winning the 2016 NBA Title before Irving demanded to be traded in 2017.
‘The likelihood of Irving and James reuniting is getting stronger and stronger each day. “But as time passes here and as the possibility exists that Jason Kidd could be hired as the Lakers coach, I think the possibility of Kyrie and LeBron reuniting—that door, which was deadbolted, has been un-deadbolted and has now been cracked open. It might even be opening more by the day.”’
The Lakers did decide to hire Jason Kidd, as an assistant coach, and named Frank Vogel head coach.
