Vegas has a new favorite to land Kyrie Irving, and it isn’t the Knicks or Celtics

Of the many free-agent decisions expected to come in the next few months, Kyrie Irving represents one of the most intriguing.

The Boston Celtics star could stay with the team he’s helped build, or he could leave after a frustrating season. He could rejoin LeBron James and sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, or try to lead his own team elsewhere. He could take the biggest market possible with the New York Knicks, or, well, pay attention to recent history.

Oddly enough, the sportsbook at Caesars Palace doesn’t see any of those as the most likely options.
