All of the talk leading up to the season is about the impending free agency decision looming for Kyrie.
"If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here", Irving said.
The comment drew a raucous reaction from the crowd.
Irving can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019 if he declines his 2019-20 player-option with Boston, something he is going to do since he can make more money that way.Читайте также: Trump mocks Al Fraken for resigning amid sexual misconduct claims
Despite injuries to Irving and top free agent Gordon Hayward, the Celtics finished with 55 wins last season before losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals in seven games.
In case you thought he may have just gotten carried away in front of his home fans, Shams Charania of The Athletic later reported that Irving has privately committed to Celtics ownership as well.
He joined Boston in a trade from the Cavaliers last August, but his season ended in March as he dealt with persistent knee trouble. Irving told Celtics officials exactly how he was feeling, and the All-Star point guard is excited about his future with the franchise. For his career, he has averages of 22.0 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
The 2019 National Basketball Association free agent crop could include Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler, plus potential restricted free agent Kristaps Porzingis.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
