Nets in no rush to trade Irving extension

Just days earlier, Kyrie Irving’s agent claimed the point guard was interested in signing an extension with the Brooklyn Nets. It’s unclear if the franchise feels the same way, but if they do, they don’t seem to be in any rush about it. This is stated by journalist Mark Stein, who confirms that it is believed in the league that if talks in this regard have not yet begun, it is because the New Yorkers want it.

In his words, Brooklyn believes they have the dominant position in negotiations, especially since they believe any franchise Irving is not really interested in going to has the ability to sign him in free agency. Is. so the point guard got a signature and trade Unless he’s willing to give up the massive deal he’s willing to settle for, the Nets see no reason to rush into talks. Irving is in his best playing (and extra-playing) moment of the last two seasons right now, but you might want to see if he’s able to keep it up before sitting with him.

The only teams to sign him to a max contract in the summer are the Spurs, Rockets, Magic, Pistons, Hornets, Pacers and Thunder, which certainly aren’t the most desirable destinations for a player who aspires to fight for another ring. . So even if he wants out, he will have to negotiate with the Nets unless he wants to give up a significant amount.

In any case, it seems that in Brooklyn they sensed that Irving’s entourage wanted to put the ball in their court, and replied that the ball could remain there for a few months. Except for surprises, it looks like it’s going to last a long time.
