NBA Playoffs: Bleibt Kyrie in Brooklyn? Irving will Nets

Kyrie Irving wants to keep the Brooklyn Nets loyalty despite the disappointing season. The Point Guard plans to sign an extension and then continue with Kevin Durant the franchise to “manage”.

“What my extension is concerned, I have no plans to play elsewhere,” Irving said after playing 4 against the Boston Celtics. The Nets lost with 112: 116 and were already seen in the first playoff round, although Brooklyn was at the start of the season as a househous favorite for the championship.

“This is just more motivation for our franchise to be at the top in the coming years,” Irving continued. The 30-year-old can be free agent this summer, he holds a player option of $ 36.5 million. At the same time, Irving could also get out of his contract and hope that Brooklyn offers him a new maximum contract, which could be difficult up to 245 million over five years.

If it goes to Irving, but at least it is clear that he will stay. “If I say that I’m here with Kevin, then I think this involves that for us that we manage the franchise together with [owner] Joe [Tsai] and [GM] Sean Marks,” Kyrie continued. Durant signed an extension over 198 million last summer, which binds him to the franchise until 2026.

However, the question is whether the Nets want to continue with Kyrie after it completed only 29 games due to its vaccination status in the Regular Season. Irving itself does not doubt that: “My skills in the field are out of the question, but I’m at a point where I really want to play for a great team. (…) I had the feeling in the season, the team Let’s abandon when I could not play. We tried everything that I can play, but I never wanted it to go around me. At times, that’s a secondary-war show. “

Overall, Irving with Durant only in 16 playing this season together in the field, the Big Three with James Harden blacked to the Trade Deadline, when The Beard was brought to the Philadelphia 76ers at his own request. So for the ambitious team is now in round 1. “I’m not mourned,” Durant assumed when he was asked if it annoyed him that the Big Three was failed in Brooklyn.
