Kyrie Irving Reportedly Interested In Reuniting With LeBron James

If the Lakers are to acquire Davis before the February 7 trade deadline, it would make it hard - thought not impossible - to create enough salary cap space to sign Irving or another top-tier free agent to a max contract or close to that value.

In all likelihood, though, this move would not be able to be completed along with a trade for Davis.

However, the Los Angeles Times reported James will not suit up.

The Celtics have a lot of draft picks and assets and some believe if Boston were to include Tatum in an offer, it would be really hard for any team to match it.

The Celtics guard gave a verbal commitment to his current employers before the start of the current campaign, but many expect him to leave if they do not match their pre-season expectation of being the favorite to make the NBA Finals from the Eastern Conference.

Before all heck broke loose around the National Basketball Association world this week, a report surfaced that Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving was open to the idea of reuniting with former teammate LeBron James in Los Angeles.

Mohammed Shami was the chief destroyer with three for 41 from nine overs as India went 3-0 up in the five-match series. But while New Zealand are now down, they are not yet out and it would be foolish to discount the home side just yet.

Signing Irving and then trading for Davis in the summer would financially be an easier path for the Lakers, but also become problematic as the Celtics could enter the picture in a potential Davis trade come July 1.

There are multiple layers to the possibility of Irving and James becoming teammates, namely the future of Anthony Davis.

"I've heard 4 rumors in 2 years".

Where will Kevin Durant end up next season? I heard he's signing long-term with Boston. "So I control what I can control, go out there and play".

That seems unlikely so Boston's best chance to land Davis would be to take a run at him over the summer - and risk that he leaves in 2020 as a free agent.
