No talks between Nets and 76ers for Kyrie Irving

- by

Woj called the market for the seven-time All-Star “dicey” while adding that there are no talks between the Nets and 76ers about a Ben Simmons-for-Irving block buster … and he doesn’t think the Sixers will ever call. Woj was speaking with Malika Andrews, ESPN’s former Nets beat writer and host of its new “NBA Today” show which debuts on the network Monday.

Conservatives are comparing unvaccinated Kyrie Irving to Magic Johnson and HIV. Critics say that’s rooted in myth. washingtonpost.com/history/2021/1…7:48 AM

More on this storyline

As our Alec Sturm tweeted off the podcast, Woj was not optimistic about the Nets situation, saying the organization doesn’t have much if any hope that Irving will get vaccinated. “The bottom line is, Kyrie Irving is not vaccinated,” said Woj. “At this point he doesn’t sound as though he is about to get vaccinated to be able to return and play for this Nets team. And the Nets are preparing for the fact that’s he’s not gonna be there.” -via NetsDaily / October 17, 2021
Alec Sturm: Woj, via his podcast: “When the Nets made [the Harden] trade, they saw James Harden as a necessity. I think that they could already see that they may not be able to count on Kyrie Irving.” -via Twitter / October 17, 2021
It’s important to note that Irving has atrade bonus that would raise his salary to the maximum ($39,344,900) if moved in the early part of the season. That would still allow the Sixers to swap Simmons ($33 million) for Irving since teams only need to send out $31.4 million to match salaries for $39.3 million. -via HoopsHype / October 16, 2021
