Inside sources have told Marc Stein from Substack Irving is determined to stay in Dallas. One of the sources said, “He’s consistently expressed his desire to stay a Maverick. He wants to put an end to the idea that he is angling for L.A.” One source simply said , “He wants stay.”
Dallas Mavericks have shown interest in rebuilding their team around Luka Donic and Kyrie Irwin. The Mavs could have the perfect topping on their cake if they can sign LeBron.
Will LeBron join the Dallas Mavericks to reunite with Kyrie?
Kyrie Irving will be a free agent for the NBA season 2023-24. There have been a few whispers that he might team up with LeBron. Shams Charania and Chris Haynes report that it is not going to happen.
Haynes wrote a detailed article on how Irving asked Dallas to explore their trade options. He said that the Mavericks had been preparing an offer for James when the Lakers’ season was in a downward spiral.
LeBron James is currently contracted to the Los Angeles Lakers. James, despite the possibility of being traded, has never changed teams before his contract expires in the 20 years that he has played. There have also been reports that he is interested in leaving the Lakers.
