Ethe case Kyrie Irving It promises to be one of the great stories of the summer and could unleash huge tidal waves if it goes one way or another. With various teams trying to convince the Nets to design a complex transfer operation, the Brooklyn team is currently debating between the offers that may arrive, especially from New York y Los Angeles (Lakers), and the possibility of extending the contract, something that, despite the failure this year, they do not give up.
A Irving he has one year left on his contract, but it is a player option. The chances of the Nets to retain the point guard go through signing him a new long-term contract. But the New York team has competition.
In the latest information, Knicks they seemed interested, and so did the Lakers. In this sense, Irving and LeBron James have already met to talk about playing together in LA But the Nets don’t want a trade for Rusell Westbrook y the name that has come out is that of Anthony Davis. Miami is also interested, but in the case of the Heat it would have to be in a ‘sign-and-trade’ operation.
To all this, a new source of pressure has emerged for the Nets. It is internal and very powerful. As Adrian Wojnarowski reports, Kevin Durant will be ready to leave immediately asking for a transfer if the team is unable to offer Irving a contract extension.
Some Nets critics believe that keeping Irving y Durant It’s counterproductive for the team, because neither of them are players who are going to attract the free agents that are on the market starting in July. In any case, if Durant’s threat is real, the crisis is certain in Brooklyn if Irving ultimately leaves the team.
