And-Ones: Irving, Lakers, Robinson, Morris

Kyrie Irving remains as much of a target for the Lakers as Kawhi Leonard is, Marc Stein of the New York Times tweets. Earlier today, Los Angeles was able to amend the Anthony Davis trade agreement, giving them the ability to carve out roughly $32MM in cap room.

Irving seems likely to join Brooklyn, but that won’t stop the Lakers from making an attempt to lure the point guard to the team. Here’s more from around the NBA:

  • Former No. 5 overall pick Thomas Robinson will play in the summer league for the Spurs, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets. Robinson most recently played in the G League for the Red Claws, the affiliate of the Celtics.
  • Markieff Morris is unlikely to re-sign with the Thunder, Maddie Lee of the Oklahoman writes. The scribe details how many players who sign during buyout season end up switching teams come the offseason.
  • Damyean Dotson believes the Knicks will be fine even if they don’t land a big star in free agency this summer, as Marc Berman of the New York Post passes along. “We have a full team of young guys,” Dotson said. “My teammates Allonzo [Trier], Kev [Kevin Knox] Mitchell [Robinson], [R.J. Barrett], we’re rising stars. We can build together and one day become a great team if we work hard keep listening to coach [David Fizdale]. All the guys played last year got experience.”

      Decent players are going to get more than the min so not sure how you’re getting all 3 for 32 mill

        Cause they shouldn’t have to give dlo a max contract leaving money to sign others if he gets max i would say pass

          Yep. D.Lo is only going to get ~ $22M per, you could find a couple of guys for $5m per and avoid the Kyrie trainwreck at the same time. Winning.

  1. The only rising star in the Knicks is RJ, all the rest are dross, maybe they can make good rotation players… but stars they will never be!

      Knox is 19 and had a decent season considering his age. As one mentioned, Robinson has the potential to be a defensive monster. unless you can see the future, let’s allow them to show us what they can be.

        If Knox becomes a more consistent
        3 point shooter he has a future
        If not, he’s essentially an undersized 4
        But he was that coming out of Kentucky
        Needs to work on 3, D and moving without the ball

    Mitchell Robinson is going to be a borderline all-star, similar to a young DeAndre Jordan.

    The New York Knicks will be fine even if they don’t land a superstar? Was I the only person that saw they are 17-65 season? This team is an absolute mess.
