Report: Clippers ‘expected to be among interested suitors’ for Kyrie Irving

The Los Angeles Clippers have made it no secret that they’re always pursuing potential deals that could make the team better

After all, they swung big for Paul George, and that doesn’t even take into account all the other trades they’ve made over the last few years

 But according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, don’t be too surprised if they make a run at another big time trade

The Lakers, Knicks and Clippers are expected to be among the interested suitors if [Kyrie] Irving heads elsewhere, multiple sources tell The Athletic

Kyrie Irving is no stranger to being in a massive deal. After all, the Cleveland Cavaliers traded him to the Boston Celtics in 2017

for what ended up being a couple players and a first round pick. That pick turned into Collin Sexton

But this would represent a slightly different calculus. Irving, 30, missed most of this past season due to vaccine mandates in New York

 logging only 29 games for the Nets in 2021-22. He played in all four of their postseason games

averaging 21.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists on 44% shooting.

For his career, Irving is averaging 23.1 points, 5.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds on 47% shooting from the field and 38% on 3s.
