Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets are on opposite ends at the moment as they are looking to work on a new contract extension for the future of both him and the organization.
However, as negotiations move forward, there doesn’t appear to really be light at the end of the tunnel. While the thought process around the league is that Irving will remain in Brooklyn, the two sides have yet to really make any progress on a deal and things look bleak at the moment.
In the case that Irving does, in fact, leave the Nets, he already has a list of teams he has drawn up that he would like to join. There are six teams on that list which includes the Los Angeles Lakers to team up with LeBron James again and also the Philadelphia 76ers who feature former Nets teammate, James Harden.
The biggest fact here is that Irving is not a priority of any of those teams at the moment.

Irving is a spectacular player capable of going off at any moment to lead Brooklyn in the blink of an eye, but he has played in only 103 gaemes across three seasons with the Nets. This is a situation that could get ugly before there is an agreement on either side.
