Kyrie Irving, who caused controversy with numerous eccentricities, recently requested a trade from his team, the Brooklyn Nets.
still popular In particular, he is an attractive player for the ‘Win Now’ team that is looking to win this season.
CBS Sports reported on the 5th (Korean time) that the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat want to trade Kyrie Irving.
The Los Angeles Lakers want a power boost. Especially LeBron James.
Irving and I already ate together at the Cleveland Cavaliers. There was also a good experience of winning the finals at the time and working together. LeBron James has recently commented on his power reinforcement several times, and Washington Wizards Kyle Kuzma criticized on his social media account that ‘Lebron is tempering (to bring Irving)’.
Dallas wants it too. The dependence on Luka Doncic is quite high. According to local media, Doncic strongly wants Irving’s trade. Dallas has Christian Wood, but it’s 2% short of two options to support Doncic. Doncic wants a powerful card that will disperse his concentration check. 스포츠토토
Same with the Miami Heat. Miami, which has Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, has problems on offense. In particular, Kyle Lowry and Tyler Hiro in the backcourt are lacking 2%. Lowry has strong defense, but lacks offense, and Hiro has a lot of ups and downs.
Irving wants up to a four-year, $198 million contract extension with Brooklyn. But negotiations with Brooklyn are difficult.
While his mettle is unquestionable, off the court Irving has had many eccentricities that crossed the line.
In 2020, he refused to be vaccinated against the new coronavirus and played only 29 regular league games. Just before this season, he had already requested a public trade once, and in November of last year, he was suspended for 5 games for introducing films and books with anti-Semitic content on social media. Again, after Brooklyn expressed disapproval of his long-term deal, they want to trade him openly. However, if Irving is traded, the recruited team will lay the groundwork for becoming a championship candidate at once.
