Could a LeBron James-Kyrie Irving reunion be in the works? The Los Angeles Lakers are considered the "most significant threat" for Kyrie Irving if the superstar guard declines his $36.5 million player option and becomes a free agent this offseason according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski
"The Lakers are considered the most significant threat right now for Kyrie Irving, but that would entail him taking $30 million less than he can opt into in Brooklyn. There's a $6 million taxpayer exemption he could sign with the Lakers with."
Wojnarowski went on to say that most players wouldn't give up that much money but said that Irving's refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19 lost him nearly $17 million as he missed games in 2021-22.
