A few hours ago the rumor of the LeBron-Irving reunion resurfaced
Brian Windhorst of ESPNput back Kyrie on the Lakers’ radar because he speculated on the situation of Austin Reaves and his stay in the team; this during the podcast ‘The Hoop Collective’:
“It would take a little bit of maneuvering and Kyrie (Irving) probably wouldn’t have to take the maximum contract, or (Lakers) would have to work on something with Dallas, but it could happen. They can keep Reaves and bring in Kyrie.”
On the other hand, Eric Pincus, from the Bleacher Report, pointed out that LeBron James would have begun to put pressure by speculating about his retirement so that Rob Pelinka, general manager of the Lakers, would do his best to sign Kyrie Irving.

I’m in no rush to make a decision.”Irving pointed out on his social networks.
