Irving and Lakers star LeBron James won a championship together while they were teammates with the Cavaliers from 2014-17. But Irving reportedly wanted a bigger role and asked Cleveland to trade him before he was eventually sent to the Celtics. Irving, however, said he apologized to James during a phone call in late January. Windhorst reported: “If you had asked me six months ago, I’d have said the door was closed and locked — (Irving signing with Los Angeles) was not going to happen. But over the last few months, there has no doubt been a thawing between Kyrie and LeBron, and Kyrie has become more open to joining the Lakers and has done some research on the organization.”
Windhorst added: “With Magic leaving — that was a guy he felt a connection to — and with great opportunities in Brooklyn and in New York, plus Boston trying to keep him, I think the Lakers are lower on his list. But they’re on his list, and that gives them a fighting chance. Boston has got to still be worried about the Lakers in the Kyrie pursuit.”
Dylan Windler now travels to Chicago, where he is staying ahead of the draft to train with fellow clients of Priority Sports & Entertainment and agent Mark Bartelstein. He will then visit with the Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics.
