Lakers Rumors: Kyrie Irving Willing To Leave Cleveland For LA?
[new_royalslider id=”175″]

This is a transition period for the Los Angeles Lakers. With Kobe Bryant signing what is likely to be his final contract, the team will need to get its next star in place.

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has looked unhappy at times this season, and many believe that he could be trying to get out of Cleveland.

On the Mason & Ireland Show on ESPN LA 710, Lakers radio announcer Mychal Thompson talked with them about Kyrie Irving and the possibility of him coming to LA:

My son Mychel, who is good friends with Kyrie since they played together in Cleveland, says that Kyrie said that if he did leave the Cavaliers, and the rookie-scale contract that he’s on right now, he would definitely do it for the Lakers.

Irving is one of the top young point guards in the NBA, and has a definite star quality about him. He is already set to make his second All-Star appearance this weekend.

This season has been a bit of a disappointment for both Irving and the Cavaliers, and the frustration is becoming apparent.

There have been reports that Kevin Love is likely to be a Laker in the future. The possibility of pairing Love and Irving has to have Lakers fans extremely excited for the future, despite the fact that they may miss out on Carmelo Anthony joining the team.

While Anthony may not come to town, the news on Love and Irving gives the Lakers a bright outlook for their future.

None of these rumors guarantee anything, of course, but the fact that the Lakers name continues to pop up is a great sign.
