Kevin Durant expressed his desire to leave the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday. Kyrie Irving, meanwhile, likely has his suitcases packed as well.

The most popular landing spot for the uber-talented point guard as of Friday afternoon is the Lakers, where he’d reunite with LeBron James.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said on NBA Today Irving is “focused on getting to the Lakers,” who are the odds-on favorites to land the former No. 1 overall pick.

The Mavericks, Nets, Clippers and Heat are the four other teams priced at +1000 or shorter.

Irving recently opted into his $36.5 million player option, though ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski — and others — noted Durant and Irving more than likely have both played their final games with the Nets.

Irving played in only 103 regular-season games during three campaigns in Brooklyn, fresh off a mere 29 starts this past year.

The Nets were brutal for bettors in 2021-22, recording a 33-52-2 (38.8%) clip against the spread; only the Trail Blazers finished with a worse cover rate.

The Lakers, meanwhile, also burned pockets. They finished bottom-five against the spread last season at 35-47 (42.7%).

The Heat and Mavericks are also up at the top of the odds field to acquire Irving. Those two clubs have also been linked as potential suitors for Durant, who’s favored to land with the Suns.
