The Lakers are considered to be one of potential suitors for Kyrie Irving who has requested the Nets to trade him before the trade deadline.

According to sports analyst Chris Broussard, the addition or Irving to the Purple and Gold would be a difference maker. However, he doubts that Brooklyn would take Russell Westbrook in return.

“If the Lakers get Kyrie Irving they are winning the West,” Broussard said on First Things First after saying that only the leadership of LeBron James would ensure that Irving does not get into controversies.
