It has been an unsuccessful tenure for Kyrie Irving thus far with the Brooklyn Nets. That has been highlighted this season and it could lead to a blockbuster NBA trade. This is a chance for the Nets to find a deal with the Chicago Bulls for another star.
This star is Zach LaVine. The Bulls have been playing around with the idea of trading either LaVine or Lauri Markannen. Chicago is a franchise that needs to make some changes soon. They are currently 6-8 and in the midst of another season that will ultimately end with them missing the postseason. The difference in this trade would be the return. The Bulls have been featured in potential deals that would land them some capital for the future.
This particular NBA trade would land them one of the best point guards in the league. Of course, that is when he is on the floor. Irving recently missed his seventh straight game for the Nets. This began as personal reasons and the organization was unaware of the reason.
During his absence, Brooklyn was able to land James Harden in a blockbuster NBA trade with the Houston Rockets. Through two games, the duo of James Harden and Kevin Durant has worked just fine. If they were able to land Zach Lavine, this team would solidify their lineup even more.
The Nets are already one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Now they could rebuild some assets and add another star in exchange for Irving. Let’s take a look at what a potential deal might look like between the two sides.
