In light of what?@Kristian Winfieldreported… “If Irving were a player who lifts all the tides, if he were someone whose mere presence inspired teammates to play with him and for him, he would have not only the Nets as suitors, but anyone without an All-NBA PG”…11:56 am

Amid all the Kyrie Irving speculation, he’s 95-1 to win #NBA Award for Most Valuable Player in 2022-23. Bradley Beal is 110-1 and Zach LaVine is 160-1. Steph Curry is 18-1 behind seven others. Doncic, Embiid, Giannis are most likely 1-2-3. LeBron James is 23-1. † 8:40 am

Two weeks ago, I wouldn’t have even considered Kyrie to the Lakers as a possibility.
A week ago, I was intrigued but dismissive, focused on more seemingly plausible off-season scenarios.
Now I’m really starting to believe that this is their only hope of competing next season. † 22:37

Adrian Wojnarowski: ESPN Sources: Outside of the Lakers, there are currently no known teams planning to pursue sign-and-trades for Nets G Kyrie Irving. Formally, sign-and-trades cannot be discussed until after 6 p.m. on Thursdays. It is believed Brooklyn has no interest in available Lakers packs. -through Twitter @wojespn / 27 June 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski: If Irving turns down his $36 million player option, he will be eligible to sign with the Lakers for the $6 million exception. Deadline is Wednesday to decide on the option. -through Twitter @wojespn / 27 June 2022

The belief among league and player circles alike is that Irving is gone and the Seven-Eleven Era is over before it ever began. Irving only appeared in 103 regular season games in Brooklyn, a three-year run that was blighted in Year 1 by a nagging shoulder injury; in year 2 due to absences for personal reasons; and in Year 3 due to Irving’s reluctance to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in a city that only introduced a professional athlete waiver under its vaccine mandate weeks before the NBA playoffs began. -through New York Daily News / 27 June 2022
