The Nets can still trade Kyrie Irving and the team getting him won't be hard capped.

Why is everyone assuming he's staying with the Nets for 2022-23?

Kyrie is a star but he’s not a household name like Kobe, LeBron, etc. where he can count on making this kind of money from endorsements after he retires. He would have to have been truly insane to have opted out. Most people could live off the interest alone of $31 million.

There’s still hope. From what I understand Kyrie had to opt-in if he were to want a trade. A sign and trade would trigger a hard cap. This way if he were to be traded it wouldn’t handcuff his potential new team.

Keep the dream alive!!!!

I wish we people had to take a short quiz on basic cba rules before making an account here.

LeBron for Ayton/Cam/Picks is something I would seriously consider right now

Glad we can move forward onto Free Agency now...

Kyrie won't be a Laker and neither will Wall.
Wall wants to play and still be the man, look for him to end up with either the Clippers or Miami.

Good job by ESPN for creating content the past two days since this free agent class is full of players nobody cares about.

But it was pretty clear to anyone with a working knowledge of the CBA that ultimately this was going to be the outcome for now.

Twenty years from now they will still be playing the clip of when LeBron breaks Cap’s scoring record. Jeanie will 100% make sure the uniform he’s wearing when he does so is a Lakers one.

Wall is going to the Clippers but he won't be the man, he will be third option at best.

There was no way Kyrie was ever coming to the Lakers. Huge pipe dream.

That's a really dumb goal to have as the Lakers CEO but okay

Dan Woike - LA Times: https://t.co/Iu4WOjNT1M

Quote:
“Irving could still be traded to the Lakers, though their leverage in the deal probably vanished once the threat of Irving signing with them outright disappeared.”

“As late as Monday morning, there was still belief a deal could be struck with Irving and the Nets. The “how,” though, was largely out of the Lakers’ control — provided they eventually put their limited future draft picks into play.”

“That, in the end, could be required to sweeten any trade with Russell Westbrook’s extra-large expiring contract, the main reason a third team would enter any deal.”


The middle quote... does that mean Lakers didn’t include picks or am I inferring wrong?

Lakers did the right thing

Don't get desperate and don't overpay
No deal is better than a bad deal (see Westbrook trade)

Exactly. That's the kind of thinking for a team in a small market wanting to make their mark, not the greatest basketball franchise to grace the NBA>

Nets FO working us over. Rob will get desperate and fork over multiple first round picks for the right to pay Kyrie (who is hella unreliable) a max extension.
