Kyrie Irving forced a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics last off-season.

The 26-year-old guard reportedly wanted a bigger offensive role and averaged 24.4 points per game in his first season with Boston. But, his former teammate LeBron James could become a free agent this summer and rumours have swirled that Boston and James may have mutual interest .

Irving discussed the possibility of reuniting with James at a press conference Tuesday.

"In this business, I've kind of experienced it all and I've seen a lot," Irving said ( via NBA.com ) "So we'll see what management decides."

Irving was selected No. 1 overall by Cleveland in the 2011 NBA Draft. He averaged 21.6 points per game and made four All-Star teams in his six seasons with the Cavaliers.

Irving said he wouldn't be opposed to playing with James again.

"Obviously, it's a business at the end of the day," Irving said. "Ownership and management, they're going to feel what's best for our future and I'm fully supportive of (them). We'll see what happens."

The Celtics finished 2017-18 with a 55-27 record. They advanced to the Eastern Conference finals, where they fell to the Cavaliers in seven games.

Irving missed the entire postseason due to a knee injury.
