Kyrie Irving Says He’ll Be A Laker ‘Real, Real Soon’


Kyrie Irving had become a hot commodity in this offseason, particularly because of his contract situation with the Brooklyn Nets. Reports suggest that Irving could likely find a new team after talks about his future with the Nets have gone stagnant.

Then, out of nowhere, Irving shocked everybody when he exercised his $36.9M option with the Brooklyn Nets for the 22-23 season, after all.

Kyrie reportedly even shocked his team because he never informed the Nets of his decision before it was reported. Kyrie opting in however eventually didn’t change the fact that his Nets future is unclear at best.

Irving wants to join LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers and the Nets have been working on a trade without success so far. But when the star point guard was at the NBA Summer League last night, he was asked about his future with the Lakers by some fans sitting behind him.

Irving allegedly said that he’ll be a Laker ‘real, real soon’ in response.



According to The Athletic’s Jovan Buha, LeBron James has also been “putting some pressure” on the Lakers behind the scenes to acquire Kyrie. 

Meanwhile Nets GM Sean Marks and Lakers GM Rob Pelinka were seen talking last night.
