Kyrie Irving has a lengthy list of potential teams he's interested in should he leave the Brooklyn Nets, but his decision could come down to the Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers. 

"Part of this is a negotiation," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "He has wanted that long-term max deal in Brooklyn. It's not available to him there.

"I think the one team with the most interest in Kyrie Irving are the Lakers. There's really not a sign-and-trade scenario with Brooklyn that makes sense. Of course, if the Lakers wanted to offer Anthony Davis in a sign-and-trade, of course the Nets would love that. That's not going to happen.

"If you're Kyrie Irving, your way to get to the Lakers, very likely, would to opt out of your contract next week and sign the $6 million exception the Lakers would have available. The difference between that and his opt-in with the Nets is over $30 million.  They can clear cap space the next year. They would have Russell Westbrook potentially coming off their and sign him to a more lucrative long-term deal if things work out."
