Kyrie Irving has reportedly reached out to LeBron James to gauge his interest in joining him on the Dallas Mavericks, but it is unlikely to happen due to the lack of trade assets and cap space. The Lakers can only come up with $34 million in cap space, while Irving is eligible for $46 million in the first year of a new deal. It is more likely that Irving will stay in Dallas and try to secure a max deal, while the Mavericks remain committed to re-signing him in free agency.

As per recent reports, Kyrie Irving has reached out to LeBron James to gauge his interest in joining him on the Dallas Mavericks. However, there are several reasons why this is unlikely to happen. For one, the Mavericks lack the assets to put together a trade package that would be sufficient for James, who still has one more season left on his contract with the Lakers. Additionally, the Lakers don’t have enough cap space to sign Irving to a max deal without decimating their depth.

Despite these obstacles, there is still a chance that Irving could end up in Dallas. As per Marc Stein, Irving may be trying to sell himself to the Mavericks as a recruiter in hopes of securing a max deal. Additionally, s say that Dallas is still intent on re-signing Irving in free agency and is looking to build a trade package around their No. 10 pick.

If Irving does end up staying in Dallas, it could be a boon for the Mavericks. With Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis already on the roster, adding Irving would give them a formidable “Big Three” and make them a serious contender in the Western Conference. However, it remains to be seen whether Irving will be willing to take a discount to stay in Dallas or if he will look to sign elsewhere for a bigger payday.

As for LeBron James, it seems likely that he will remain with the Lakers for at least one more season. Despite a disappointing first-round exit in the playoffs, James and Anthony Davis are still one of the best duos in the league, and the Lakers will likely look to add more pieces around them this offseason. Whether or not Irving will be one of those pieces remains to be seen, but for now, it seems like a long shot.

To sum up, while the idea of Irving and James teaming up on the Mavericks is intriguing, it is unlikely to happen due to various obstacles. However, Irving’s desire to stay in Dallas and the Mavericks’ interest in re-signing him could lead to a fruitful partnership between the two parties. As for James, he will likely remain with the Lakers and look to bounce back from a disappointing season. Only time will tell what the future holds for these two superstars.
