  • Things have continued to get more and more tense between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets.
  • New reports indicate that Irving has presented Brooklyn with a list of teams that he would prefer to be traded to.
  • Among those teams is the Philadelphia 76ers, which would mean a hilarious reunion with James Harden.

It’s begin to look more like Kyrie Irving won’t be a member of the Brooklyn Nets next season with each passing day.

Things between the two sides have been rocky at best of late. Now Irving has reportedly presented the team with a list of places he would prefer to go if they are to trade him.

The New York Knicks, LA Lakers and LA Clippers are known suitors for Kyrie, but the new list provided by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The new members of the list are the Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and, hilariously, the Philadelphia 76ers.

Though Wojnarowski does point out that Irving is not necessarily a priority for each team on the list.

A move to Philadelphia would be funny for a number of reasons, most notably because it would likely meaning teaming up again with James Harden. Though Harden and Kyrie have denied all rumors, a number of reports have said that Irving was a large reason for Harden seeking an exit from Brooklyn.

Now the two could be teammates once again, and NBA fans find the idea hilarious.

Irving ended up in Philly seems extremely unlikely, but it’s undoubtedly the funniest possible outcome.
