Kyrie Irving reportedly made a list of six teams where he would like to play if he was to leave the Nets amid contract extension uncertainty. Those teams are the Lakers, Clippers, Knicks, Heat, Mavericks, and 76ers.
Even if it goes to the point where Kyrie will be choosing his next team, it will not be that easy. According to a sports analyst Chris Broussard, half of those teams don’t even want the former NBA champion on their roster.
“Half of these teams don’t even want Kyrie,” Broussard said on First Things First. “I was texting with someone that works for one of these teams, ‘Do you want Kyrie?’ ‘No!’ It was the fastest return text I’ve ever got. I asked, ‘What do you think of his wish list?’ ‘Tomfoolery & wishful thinking.'”
This past season Irving averaged 27.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 37.7 minutes per game for Brooklyn.
