After his short hiatus, Kyrie Irving returned to the court on Wednesday night in a losing effort against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This was the first time that the Brooklyn Nets had their trio of NBA superstars on the court at the same time. Irving made his return to the court but this does not mean that the Nets are not thinking about trading him.
Brooklyn made a big splash move when they acquired James Harden from the Houston Rockets. The NBA trade rumors finally came to fruition and James Harden joined both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
After the trade, the Nets became the favorite in the Eastern Conference and potentially the NBA title, with the Los Angeles Lakers as the only team near. There was frustration surrounding the recent development with Irving but he made his return to the court and all was well. Or is it? The front office could still choose to shop Irving and see what they would get back.
The San Antonio Spurs are a team that could offer quite the return for a player like Irving. They have multiple veterans, such as DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, who could be on the block this season. No moves have been made yet but it could be on the horizon.
San Antonio is a franchise that is used to winning. After missing the postseason last year, they could get back to that with the acquisition of Irving.
This would get the Spurs back near where they want to be in the Western Conference. Let’s take a look at a potential deal to get Irving to San Antonio.
