Tim MacMahon: Kyrie Irving extension talks are expected to be put off until this summer. He is eligible for a 2-year extension now and a 4-year deal in the summer. If the Mavs-Kyrie union doesn’t continue, Dallas will have close to max salary cap space this summer.
Marc Stein: Kyrie Irving has no assurances of a subsequent contract from the Mavericks, league sources tell me, but he will be eligible for a two-year extension worth in excess of $80 if he and Dallas look to continue the relationship beyond this season.
