With all the rumors of Anthony Davis possibly joining the Lakers soon, Celtics’ All Star point guard Kyrie Irving is allegedly “genuinely interested” in playing once again with LeBron James.
Ric Butcher of Bleacher Report confirmed the interest.
“While the news since last summer has been largely about stars not interested in being LeBron [James]’s sidekick — [Paul] George’s decision to re-sign with the Thunder, Jimmy Butler not having the Lakers on his reported preferred list and Kawhi Leonard reportedly favoring the Clippers — a source close to the Celtics confirmed that Kyrie Irving is genuinely interested in reuniting with his former Cavaliers teammate,” Bucher said.

Irving has previously stated that he planned to re-sign with the Celtics this Summer, but with these rumors circulating, who knows.
Rumors on Davis have surfaced saying the Celtics may also be a possible lansing spot for the star player, but it appears he does not see Boston as “a top target.”
