Vecsey said around the around one-hour-and-13-minute mark of the podcast that he has been told the Cavaliers point guard would like to play for the Los Angeles Clippers. Reporters have previously mentioned the Clippers “made an effort” for Irving. Vescey, who recently returned to NBA reporting and mentioned this in his recent Patreon column as well, indicates that Los Angeles is his preference. “He loves L.A. and he’s been working out there a lot this summer. Do they have the assets they get him? I don’t see how. But they also have Jerry West and he’s been able to figure out before … the Lakers didn’t have the assets to get Shaq and he wheeled and dealed and figured out and they got him … he was able to get Kobe for Divac in the draft.”
