Lakers Rumors: Anthony Davis for Kyrie Irving Trade with Nets Unlikely amid Buzz

·1 min read

ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst shot down the likelihood of a blockbuster trade between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

On Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective, he suggested the only realistic trade offer the Nets would entertain and accept from the Lakers for guard Kyrie Irving is one involving power forward Anthony Davis.

Windhorst noted that he has looked into the possibility of that trade happening but does "not see" it coming to pass.

Instead, he believes the Nets and Irving will come to an agreement on a short-term deal since Brooklyn reportedly doesn't want to sign Kyrie to a long contract that is fully guaranteed.
