Word is he wasn't liked in that Boston locker room and they are eager to part ways with him.

Yeah, Rozier made it known he wasn't happy with his role. Brad Stevens was also exposed because I didn't think he did a good job coaching that team with Kyrie. They ran a nice system when Kyrie was out, with Horford as a facilitator and the young guys scoring.

Bobby Marks:

- Durant's injury affects Kyrie's plans and teams who were planning on pairing him up with KD

- Spoke to 4 teams with cap space and all 4 said they would offer Durant the max deal

- Doesn't think Lakers are in the Durant hunt, they're not patient to wait for Durant to recover for a whole year

Land Kyrie and things get a lot more interesting this summer. I don't know if the Lakers would be able to land AD in a trade but I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that there are other players who would request a trade to LAL that we probably could get and would help us.

Lots of ring chasers would flock to LA...

Nice.

It’s the best option for him, he wanted to team up with KD but that won’t happen so his best alternative is to team up with LeBron/AD.

LeBron/Irving/AD that trio can compete for championships and have a nice window of success because once LeBron retires you would still have AD/Irving.

Kyrie, we would welcome you to LA. Bonus points for screwing over the Celtics to get here. You, LeBron, and AD would torch the league!

I will admit that I have been totally against gutting the roster or trading the young core for AD but I am slightly starting to come around, especially if we land Kyrie as well.

I am not a fan of building a team of mercenaries and would rather ride with the homegrown talent. That said, here is my best case somewhat realistic scenario of veteran players we can add if we land a big 3 of Lebron, Kyrie and AD:

Trade Lonzo, Ingram, 4th pick, Wagner, Future 1st (2021), Bonga for AD and 2nd round pick (2019)

Sign Kyrie to the max (trade Bonga for 2nd round pick if additional space is needed to get Kyrie the max)

Sign capable 3&D 2-guard to room exception: Wesley Matthews, Avery Bradley, Reggie Bullock

Target the following for the vet min to fill out the bench: Markieff Morris (Klutch guy), Ariza (long shot), McGee, Austin Rivers, Muskala, Caruso

Roster:

C - AD | McGee | Muskala
F - Kuzma | Markieff Morris
F - Lebron | Ariza | 2nd round pick
G - Matthews | Hart
G - Kyrie | Rivers | Caruso

On the flipside, I can see myself in full support of NO and their promising core :

C - Zion | Okafor
F - Randle | Wagner
F - Ingram | Miller
G - Holiday | Moore
G - Ball | Garland

If we land AD and Kyrie, I hope we retain Lonzo in the trade. Would be exiting to see him lobbing passes to AD and Kyrie could still be a ball dominant shooting guard.

if we get AD let hypothetically say this weekend. Do we have enough to also get Kyrie on July 1 ?

I have some reservations on what it will cost to make it happen, but I think a big 3 of Bron, Kyrie and AD can take out a KD-less Dub team next year. Sign me up.

I think it's as long as we sign Kyrie and then the trade is officially agreed to. It's the semantics of it all.

It was some preseason event where he said he planned on re-signing with Foston.

I don't think a KD-ful Dub team is physically possible next year.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is changing representation and is expected to partner with Roc Nation Sports, league sources told ESPN.


Same sports talent agency that handles KD.
