Kyrie Irving Is Apparently Trying To Recruit Anthony Davis To Boston


Mere days after verbally promising to Boston Celtic season-ticket holders that he'd be re-signing with the C's, Kyrie Irving is already hard at work trying to convince other stars to come to Beantown.

According to Jay King of The Atheltic, after making it clear that the point guard wants to remain in Boston for the foreseeable future, Irving has apparently contacted New Orleans star Anthony Davis about a move to Boston.

Davis is scheduled to become a free agent in the summer of 2021, but that doesn't mean Boston hasn't kept tabs on his availability up to this point.

The Celtics have been rumored to have Davis' name circled as their main target in terms of player acquisitions since February of this year, with every move the team makes allowing Boston to keep their options open and in position to strike" on Davis, according to Jared Weiss of USA Today's Celtics Wire.

Davis is under contract for at least the next three years in NOLA, and the Pelicans are the only team in the league able to offer AD a supermax contract extension, but that doesn't mean Boston can't swoop in with their plethora of assets to make a trade if Davis becomes disgruntled in the Big Easy.
