An intriguing report was written tonight (Saturday through Sunday) on the Yahoo website, according to which the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers are talking about the possibility of making a trade in which Kyrie Irving will move to City of Angels and the opposite will be done by Russell Westbrook.
Chris Haynes, who published the article, reported that there is certainly optimism among the teams regarding the possibility that the trade will be implemented.
The main obstacles, at least at this point, are that Brooklyn also wants to include Joe Harris in the deal, whose transfer will allow them to take close to $ 39 million off the payroll, while in Los Angeles they prefer to have Seth Kerry as part of the deal.
If Irving moves to the Lakers, he is known to reunite with LeBron James with whom he won the 2016 Cleveland Championship.
