Nets plan to keep Kyrie Irving for the 2022/23 season

The Brooklyn Nets don’t seem willing to part ways with Kyrie Irving and trade him to a fellow NBA title contender.

This is what Shams Charania of The Athletic reports, adding that the Nets have made it clear to interested teams that they plan to keep Irving to the team.

“All-Star Kyrie Irving also opted into his $37 million player option, committed to the 2022-23 season in Brooklyn and sources with knowledge of the situation say he has been working out with teammates and holding constructive dialogue with the organization this offseason. Brooklyn has made clear to interested teams that they plan to keep the seven-time All-Star, according to sources,” Charania writes.

So far, only the Los Angeles Lakers have shown interest to trade for Kyrie Irving, being willing to offer two first-round picks and Russell Westbrook. However, talks with the Nets have not progressed significantly.

Irving picked up his player option in late June, worth $36.9M, and is entering the final year of his current deal with Brooklyn. He is set to become an unrestricted free agents in the summer of 2023.
