Reports: People close to Kyrie Irving believe he won't sign with Lakers




 

That rumor about Kyrie Irving reuniting with LeBron James by signing with the Lakers this summer?

Stephen A. Smith on ESPN, as transcribed by Nick Goss of NBC Sports Boston:

Jackie MacMullan of ESPN:

I don't think Irving will sign with the Lakers. I also wouldn't rule it out. Irving is his own man, and an enigmatic one at that. I'm not sure how many people, if any, have the insight to speak on his behalf.

People close to him are reportedly advising him to strongly consider the Nets. Maybe there's wishful thinking behind this notion of Irving not joining the Lakers.

But Irving re-signing with the Celtics or signing with the Knicks has seemed most likely for a while. So, maybe there's merit to Irving not heading to Los Angeles.
