Report: Nets believe D’Angelo Russell, Kyrie Irving could ‘thrive’ together

Kyrie Irving

The New York Knicks aren’t the only team in the Big Apple being linked to Kyrie Irving.

According to Brian Lewis of the New York Post, some in the Brooklyn Nets’ organization want to pair Irving with D’Angelo Russell, feeling that the two could “thrive” together in a backcourt pairing.

It would certainly be a bold and risky proposition, especially after another guard, Spencer Dinwiddie, signed a three-year extension with the team last November. Irving would demand top billing a year after Russell came into his own as a lead guard, and there are questions over Irving’s mentality as well. Still, he’s one of the most talented players in the game, and it would instantly make the Nets serious contenders in the East, which is no doubt a big part of the appeal.
