If Irving heads to Los Angeles, he will once again be linking up with LeBron James -- as the pair previously spent three years together with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The All-Star duo managed to help the Cavs to a first-ever Championship back in 2016, although Irving left a year later due to his desire to exit LeBron's shadow and lead his own franchise.

Irving has got his wish in Boston, although he has reached out to James over the last few months, apologizing for his decision to leave -- and it appears that the pair are once again on good terms.

The Lakers have the cap space to offer Irving a five-year max deal, and at 27, Irving is a player who could eventually take over from LeBron as the Lakers' main man. With the addition of Irving, Los Angeles will be immediate contenders, and it is hard to imagine Irving in any other jersey next season.
