Many free agents will be considered to join LeBron in L.A. but one name that has come up is his old basketball partner Kyrie Irving. Rumors have circulated that the guard may be interested in joining the Lakers organization.
The Lakers have kept their cap space free to sign more star players along side James in hopes to win a championship.
Many fans are skeptical about this given the history with Irving demanded a trade request away from James out of hopes to become more of the focal point on a new team. Since then Irving has changed his outlook and is now considering joining the Lakers, his association with the Celtics has not yet been revealed.
Many people close to the situation has commented on this possibility.
“If you had asked me six months ago, I’d have said the door was closed and locked. That was not going to happen. But over the last few months, there has no doubt been a thawing between Kyrie and LeBron. And Kyrie has become more open to joining the Lakers and has done some research on the organization.” this was reported by Lakersnation.com.
