So Kyrie tells us 2 weeks ago, that him. Joe, Sean. and Kevin will decide the direction of the Nets franchise. Sean tells us today that they haven’t committed to re-signing Kyrie long term. If he wants to continue to play near home (or at all), it’s on him to bridge that gap – 2:42 PM

Sean Marks didn’t want to make definitive comment when asked about Kyrie Irving’s future. Marks notes he made mistake before 21-22 training camp when he said he expected to ink Irving, Durant & Harden to extensions. He didn’t want to make public comment on potential signing again – 12:30 PM
