Kyrie Irving, member of the ‘Big Three’ de los Nets that complete Kevin Durant and James Harden, would announce his retirement if the Brooklyn franchise decided to include him in a transfer, an unlikely option now but not impossible, as there are several exchanges that could be interesting for Nets with the escort as a bargaining chip.
The outside, seven times all star, has already hinted more than once that did not rule out early retirement. In 2018 he told the media that he was iInterested in playing in the NBA until his “thirties.” Now you have 29 years and he could play a few more seasons without problems.
Irving has contract for this season for 35 million dollars, and a player option to continue in 2022-23 by 36.6 million. And it looks like it will … Unless the Nets try to include him in a trade, as revealed Nick Wright: “There are a handful of kyrie exchanges that potentially make sense to Nets, but the player’s agents have let them know that if they transfer him Kyrie simply ‘would retire from the NBA “.

Irving signed by Brooklyn in 2019, forming a tandem with Kevin Durant which later became a trio after the arrival of James Harden. The shooting guard has missed many games in the last two years and the Nets have not passed the semifinals of the Eastern Conference, but still the player is happy there and it doesn’t even occur to him to change team.
Even so, with Kyrie Irving you never know. He already made it clear in the past that it was not going to eternalize on the courts, and has a facility to be distracted by extra sporting affairs and personal matters that have taken him away from the team for weeks.
Those behaviors they dislike the Brooklyn franchise, no matter how star the player is. Of course if the Nets were willing to include him in some operation and eliminate that risk always latent in the case of Irving, it would only be for get some great NBA star in exchange. And to this day, after confirming Damian Lillard that will continue in the Blazers, there doesn’t seem to be any within reach.
