Fox Sports' Nick Wright reported Wednesday that the representative of Kyrie Irving "announced" that he would retire from the NBA if the Brooklyn Nets treated him. Irving kept his answer short.
Irving enters the third year of his four-year contract with Brooklyn. He can get out of last year. Sean Marks, general manager of Nets, said in August that he was "very confident" that the training camp will complete the extensions for Kyrie and James Harden after signing Kevin Durant on a new four-year contract valued at $ 198 million.
Irving also cleared up any confusion over an earlier tweet that could have been interpreted as anti-masking sentiment amid a swelling pandemic sparked by the highly transmittable Delta variant.
“My mask is off. Now take yours off Don't worry, "was the tweet.
Irving later explained what his "Mask Off" tweet was actually about and confirmed that his message had nothing to do with COVID-19 or face covering requirements.
