Kyrie Irving’s future with the Nets not all that clear?

Fischer’s reporting, laid out in an online conversation Thursday with Boardroom’s Eddie Gonzalez, was less certain, which he admitted, but decidedly more interesting. The Bleacher Report writer opened by saying that he has long assumed that Irving, along with Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons, will all be on the court for training camp. Still… “I’ve been working on the assumption that all three — Kevin, Kyrie, Ben Simmons — will be there for the start of training camp. However, there’s a lot of talk about Kyrie,” he told Gonzalez. “Definitely some talk about whether they are going to figure out a long term relationship.”

Wiggins didn’t really want to get vaccinated but got vaccinated and won a ship. Kyrie didn’t want to get vaccinated, never did, played half a season and was on the only playoff team that got swept. Hmm. – 2:07 AM

Wiggins’ transformation this year has been really impressive. But what set it all up was his decision to get vaxxed. He didn’t want to do it, but it brought the Warriors even closer. It was a choice Kyrie wasn’t willing to make — and is a huge reason why the Nets’ season imploded – 11:35 PM

Today’s story is up. With free agency approaching, here’s a refresher on Kyrie Irving’s most realistic options with the Nets:… – 9:24 AM

More on this storyline

In a couple weeks, Bradley Beal’s future might look a lot clearer. At this point, the Washington star isn’t tipping his hand. When asked Saturday about how he expects the start of free agency to go, he replied: “Crazy probably — like it always is.” When asked how he expects his own contract situation to play out, his response was the same: “My situation? Crazy probably.” -via / June 19, 2022

Kevin O’Connor on James Harden: I’ve been told that (Sixers) ownership wants him to opt into the $46.9 million deal for the 22/23 season, which no surprise. I’ve been told Morey he wants that to be a three-year deal. -via Spotify / June 19, 2022

He added that he hasn’t been able to confirm anything specific about Irving and admitted there’s been little coming out of the Nets camp about what’s going on. Irving, too, has been quiet in his online offerings. As Fischer noted and Alex Schiffer wrote Friday, there are a lot of paths the negotiations could take … but we should know more by June 29. That’s the deadline for Irving to opt out. (Opting out doesn’t mean he’ll test the waters elsewhere in the NBA. Just that he wants an extension.) -via NetsDaily / June 19, 2022
