NBA rumors: Kyrie Irving aims to pick up player option and leave Nets via trade

Kyrie Irving aims to pick up his player option, worth $36.9M, and then leave the Brooklyn Nets via trade. This is what Shams Charania of The Athletic reports, adding that it’s a matter of time before Irving leaves the Nets.

“There’s an expectation that Kyrie Irving will now proceed shortly into finding a new home via an opt-in and trade potential situation, and there are several teams that he will likely consider,” Charania noted.

The two sides are still negotiating a new deal, with Irving seeking a longer-term contract and the Nets aiming to give him a short-term contract.
