Kyrie Irving could reportedly play an “indirect” role in attracting Anthony Davis to the Celtics, should the Pelicans star eventually request a trade from New Orleans.

According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, the possibility of playing alongside Kyrie would make Boston a more “more compelling” destination.

If Anthony Davis becomes available — and the Celtics’ eyes are very much trained on him — Boston could throw together a package more compelling than just about anyone else’s.


Irving would be an indirect part of that package. The NBA’s superstar class respects his ballsy showman’s game.
