While veteran Rajon Rondo has played well at times this season, he signed a one-year contract back in July of 2018. Irving was traded to Boston, where his first season didn't go so great. Nevertheless, Irving will become an unrestricted free agent during the summer, and the former Cavs man has been strongly linked with a move away from the Celtics, who are hoping to sign the point guard to a new 5-year deal.

"The source added that Irving could change his mind before July 1, but added that if he does, it nearly certainly would not be to reunite with LeBron James, calling that notion a joke", the report read.

An Irving, Davis and James team will be a formidable one which can surely challenge the dominance of the Golden State Warriors.
