02, February 05 Today, New York reporter Ian Begley talked about the Nets guard on a TV show
Kyrie Irving‘s latest trade developments.
“They’re looking for the best deal back, between now and Thursday. The next team not only has to meet the Nets’ asking price, but they also have to be confident that Irving will reach an extension with them. I know a few teams
I have a certain interest in Irving and hope to reach a shorter-term contract extension with him, such as a two-year contract. However, what he has always wanted from the Nets is a four-year contract. So someone must make concessions. The Nets must get from Irving
Get something back there, or they’ll let Irving go for nothing this summer.
“I think the Lakers are probably in the best position to take Irving because he wants to go there and they are willing to offer him a longer contract. I know the Clippers are reported as a potential next home for Irving, but according to me
Sources who have contacted, they have indicated that they are not that interested in Irving. So, maybe those reports are more from the Nets,” Begley said.
