Recently though, after Kyrie called LeBron James for advice on how to be a better leader, rumors circulated that Kyrie might be going to Los Angeles at the end of the season.
"There have been reports to the contrary - that he is strongly weighing his options and perhaps even leaning toward the door - but one source very close to the situation laughed and suggested that sowing doubt regarding Irving is in the best interest of others who are, of course, free to pursue their agendas", Bulpett reported.
However, despite their interest, there are multiple reports claiming that the Celtis are not high on Davis' list of potential destinations despite the team possessing some of the best young players and one of the top point guards in the National Basketball Association in Kyrie Irving.
#1 Kyrie Irving to the Lakers On his way out of the Celtics? "'That is for real, ' the source said".
"The Lakers are not seen by Boston as a serious threat to steal Irving away", the report states.
If Irving were traded, it wouldn't be the first time in his career.
As for the above trade, the Knicks would make out quite well as they would already have Irving in the fold.

He has called world leaders who want him gone "Trump sycophants". Elected president Nicolás Maduro, meanwhile, remains in power.
Irving addressed the media Friday and said he would discuss his free agency on July 1.
The Lakers have certainly cooled off a bit lately, but they were able to get LeBron James back on the court and will likely have Kyle Kuzma back in action on Saturday.
The Celtics' main issue in talks with the Pelicans is something known as the Rose Rule would prohibit them from acquiring Davis at Thursday's trade deadline (unless they surrendered Irving, which would defeat the purpose).
The Celtics can't trade for Davis until after this season - unless they trade Kyrie Irving? - but it's fairly obvious Boston plans to make a strong push for the Pelicans superstar if New Orleans doesn't deal him before the February 7 National Basketball Association trade deadline.
The Pelicans have stated that they won't rush to trade Davis before the trade deadline this season, as he is still under contract through next season.
Davis will not sign an extension with New Orleans and wants to be traded, agent Rich Paul told ESPN.
The Celtics have won seven of their past eight games.
