Nets, Kyrie Irving at an impasse

- by

But one of the most anticipated free-agency situations involves Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving, who has a June 29 deadline on his $36.9 million player option for the 2022-23 season. However, multiple sources tell The Athletic that conversations about Irving’s future have gone stagnant between him and the Nets. An impasse currently exists among the parties that clears the way for the seven-time All-Star to consider the open marketplace, those sources said.

Kyrie, Big Face.. let’s talk…12:51 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
So anyway, it’s lunchtime and already a story came out that Kyrie could seek a new team and the Knicks would be one of the possibilities and Jaden Ivey says the Knicks are a team he’s looking at – rather than the team picking at the spot he’s likely to be drafted. – 12:32 PM

If the Lakers can get Kyrie Irving without trading LeBron or AD, they should do it.
I know there are off-court concerns. I know he has injury issues. I know I’m the one constantly crying depth. But Kyrie really is that good, and his track record with LeBron is that impressive. – 12:00 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
For the #Knicks, this is a very easy decision: Don’t even consider getting involved in a toxic relationship.
NY has made many a dumb decision over the past two decades, but getting in the Kyrie Irving business would be among the most idiotic of them all…11:46 AM

When we did the “Where is Kyrie going?” segment on my pod 2 weeks ago, here were the fake trades I wrote down. (PS: I can’t imagine OKC would take Russ but that’s the only way LA has a chance at Kyrie; Brooklyn taking Russ back would be… insane?) AM

I often wonder what would have happened if the Nets just let Kyrie be part-time from the beginning of last season instead of playing the game they played. – 11:38 AM

So what happens if Kyrie and the Nets don’t work things out?

You don’t just get players like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving every couple of years. Especially the Nets. – 11:18 AM

Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
Shouldn’t this kill the narrative that KD is calling the shots in Brooklyn?
Because if that were the case then nobody would be talking about Kyrie Irving right now. – 11:01 AM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Kyrie would command the max. The Knicks are over the cap. But that hasn’t stopped teams before when they want a guy badly enough.

Kyrie Irving, Nets at an ‘impasse’ in contract talks, star expected to test market with Knicks, Lakers as suitors: Report…10:42 AM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
hard not to feel bad for KD, but he’s in a mess of his own making.
Durant chose to leave the comfy confines of Golden State and the chance to spend the rest of his career alongside another all-time great in Steph Curry.
Instead, KD decided to hitch his future to Kyrie Irving. – 10:19 AM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
“I don’t really plan on going anywhere,” Irving said. “When I say I’m here with [Kevin Durant], I think that it really entails us managing this franchise together alongside Joe [Tsai] and Sean [Marks].”
lol – 10:16 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Celtics have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum and made the NBA Finals.
Nets have seven playoff wins in three years of KD/Kyrie and now it all might be breaking up.
I guess Boston did win the trade after all!
(We already knew Boston won that trade about five years ago, yet…) – 9:51 AM

KD picking Rudy Gobert over Kyrie and Harden in the All-Star draft is going to be legendary. – 9:28 AM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
if the Nets trade Kyrie can he still be part of their management team or would that be frowned upon – 9:27 AM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Not exactly a shocker, but there were whispers some time ago that Kyrie wanted to go to the Lakers. Kind of died down when reports surfaced that there was confidence he and the Nets would figure it out. – 9:24 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
If the Lakers or Clippers want to acquire Kyrie Irving, they need him to opt in and get traded there vs opting out and going there via sign-and-trade.
It’s not impossible, but it’s pretty close for either the Lakers or Clippers to acquire Irving via S&T due to hard cap reasons. – 9:21 AM
Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
Sources: Kyrie Irving, Nets are at impasse in conversations about his future in Brooklyn, clearing way for the seven-time All-Star to consider the open market. Lakers and Knicks expected to emerge among potential suitors.

More on this storyline

JD Shaw: Sources: The @Dallas Mavericks are hosting a free-agent mini-camp this week that will have over 30 players attending. Dallas is trading four players in the Christian Wood deal, so it will soon have open roster spots. -via Twitter @JShawNBA / June 20, 2022
JD Shaw: Among the attendees: AJ Lawson, Chris Clemons, Emanuel Terry, Grant Riller, Isaiah Brown, Jalen Lecque, Jay Huff, Justin Gorham, Langston Galloway and Sekou Wiggs, plus several other players. -via Twitter @JShawNBA / June 20, 2022
Amid great anticipation regarding Detroit’s intentions with Jerami Grant (will he finally be traded?) and whether the Pistons will indeed pursue marquee free agents like Ayton or Dallas’ Jalen Brunson, league sources say that the Pistons have very strong interest in re-signing the recently acquired Marvin Bagley III. The former Sacramento King made a positive impression in his half-season in Motown. -via / June 20, 2022
