It is difficult to picture an NBA world where LeBron James can be a part of the trade. It does some sense, however, since both the Mavs and the Lakeshow were struggling. Considering Kyrie Irving is a free agent and Doncic is the prime focus of the Mavs, what can the Mavs even offer to the Lakers that will make them pull the plug? This recruitment pitch makes little sense because LBJ is contracted till 2025 but has a Player option for the 2024-25 season. According to reports, however, that hasn’t stopped Irving from recruiting LeBron.

The Mavs have their work cut out. They missed the Playoffs and played some uninspiring basketball all season long. Therefore, it is not a surprise that Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic both may be pursuing a change of scenery.
