Another team reportedly put its hat in the ring for Kyrie Irving.

The Los Angeles Clippers have joined the pursuit of the Brooklyn Nets guard, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Los Angeles has been linked to other point guards ahead of the trade deadline, including Kyle Lowry, Mike Conley, and Fred VanVleet.

The Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, and Dallas Mavericks have all reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Irving after the eight-time All-Star requested a trade Friday.

The Clippers could use more playmaking as they rank 25th in the Association with 22.7 assists per contest this season.

Paul George and John Wall have largely been responsible for initiating the team's offense.

Irving is starting in the All-Star Game for the sixth time in his career. The 30-year-old is averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 assists, and 5.1 boards over 40 appearances. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Irving sought an extension with the Nets, but the two sides couldn't agree to a new deal.
