There’s never a dull moment when it involves Brooklyn Nets superstar guard Kyrie Irving, is there?

Let’s do a quick recap of Irving’s timeline over the last year or so.

  • Irving decides not get vaccinated, will sit out Brooklyn Nets home game.
  • The Nets agree to keep Irving out entirely until the situation is resolved.
  • Brooklyn eventually bring Irving back for road games only, to mix success.
  • New York lifts its ban and Irving comes back for all games to end the season.
  • Brooklyn is eliminated by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Things only got more and more crazy for Irving and the Nets from that points forward.

So, What Is Irving Up To Now?

Fast forward to Monday afternoon. Durant’s now been linked to the Boston Celtics, though ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst says there’s no imminent deal for Durant to go anywhere.

Whether Durant stays or goes, now The Athletic’s Shams Charania is reporting that Irving intends to play out his contract in Brooklyn.


“From everything I’ve been told, Kyrie Irving has made his intent,” Charania said. “He wants to play out next season in Brooklyn. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent next summer.”

Just another day in the saga that is Kyrie Irving’s NBA career.
