We already knew that Kyrie Irving was on the team’s radar after LA could not pull off a trade for the all-star guard this summer. But there are other names on the team’s wish list as well, with an executive outlining to Frederick Ennette of Heavy.com exactly who those options could be.
“They’re going to look at Kyrie Irving, of course, but he is probably not their top choice. They will look at Jerami Grant, who they liked for a long time, same with Myles Turner. I think Andrew Wiggins would be a big prize there because he can play two-ways.”
Irving not being the Lakers’ top choice should be a relief as he is not reliable in the slightest. It also makes sense with the theory that the team is avoiding the repeater tax.
