Report: Nets going hard after Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis


It would seem the Celtics would love to pair Kyrie Irving with Anthony Davis, but they are not alone.

According to FS1′s Chris Broussard, the Nets' "dream" is to match the two and they are going hard after Davis.

“Brooklyn is going as hard after Anthony Davis as anybody,” he said when appearing on On The Herd with Colin Cowherd recently. “A package of like D’Angelo Russell, Jarrett Allen, who’s a nice piece, shot-blocker, athletic at the rim, nice for this day and age in basketball. They’ve got the 17th and 27th pick. Now, Brooklyn, their dream is to pair AD with Kyrie. They really only want to try to get AD if they got Kyrie, because that will help them keep AD. If they can get Kyrie to agree ‘I’ll go to Brooklyn if you get AD,’ then Brooklyn makes that kind of offer for Anthony Davis.”

Broussard also reported an interesting selling point for the Nets.

“Kyrie grew up a Nets fan. He grew up in Jersey, he grew up a Nets fan," he said. "And, the selling point to Kyrie, and one thing I’m told he’s looking at, is you don’t have to deal with the media as much in Brooklyn as you do with the Knicks.”

Things should get even more interesting as free agency approaches.

"Alvin Gentry likes the Lakers players. He loves the idea of Lonzo Ball, Jrue Holiday, Zion , Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram offensively and defensively... Brooklyn is going as hard after Anthony Davis as anybody... Their dream is to pair AD with Kyrie." — @Chris_Broussard
