The skilled guard’s impending unrestricted free agency has led to speculation that the Lakers would try to pursue Irving this offseason as a free agent.
Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports that it looks like the LA Lakers may be turning their attention elsewhere. In the HoopHype podcast, Buha stated that the squad plans to “run it back” with the current lineup the next season.
