Kyrie Irving's interest in reuniting with LeBron James is 'for real'

As we discussed in the piece on Monday, there was plenty of smoke around Irving's potential exit of Boston and reuniting with James in Los Angeles for it to be considered a non-factor moving forward.

The Celtics are now precluded from trading for Davis because they've already traded for Irving, and teams are forbidden from trading for two players with designated player contracts. He's requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans, and the Los Angeles Lakers are among the teams expected to pursue the five-time All-Star.

Nonetheless, there is no mistaking how this information has spread throughout the league despite Irving's strong statements to the contrary.

#1 Kyrie Irving to the Lakers On his way out of the Celtics? "Boston has been calling New Orleans for the past year-plus on Davis, and has gathered multiple first-round picks and young players to include in a package for him".

When asked if he was going to resign with the Celtics, Kyrie told reporters "ask me July 1st". But if Irving's commitment isn't rock solid, things get complicated.

Anthony Davis tells Pelicans he won't re-sign
Davis and Irving each signed this kind of extension, and since the Celtics traded for Irving, that pushes Davis off the table. Holiday spoke with the media after reports came out about the conversation Davis had with his teammates.

This is what the elder Davis had to say regarding the idea of his son possibly playing for the Celtics, via ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

The Celtics' main issue in talks with the Pelicans is something known as the Rose Rule would prohibit them from acquiring Davis at Thursday's trade deadline (unless they surrendered Irving, which would defeat the purpose). The rumblings of Davis teaming up with LeBron started when he signed with LeBron's agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group.

Kyrie Irving has backed out on committing to the Boston Celtics long-term despite verbally committing to the Celtics in the long-term to season ticket holders in October. That could simply be due diligence or the groundwork for something big in the near future.

The Pelicans have stated that they won't rush to trade Davis before the trade deadline this season, as he is still under contract through next season. Irving is having, by most accounts, the best regular season of his career.
