Nets won’t offer contract extension to Kyrie Irving


df4c3863d7b5848e0a7dd2f39942e3d9

Alec Sturm: Via the @BKGlueGuys, @Shams Charania confirms Kyrie will not be offered an extension: “He was willing to sacrifice, at the end of the day, 16 million dollars in salary this upcoming year and 186 million dollars, as far as an extension, that he will not be offered now.”

Calling it a “difficult” but “sound” decision, Steve Nash says Nets are moving forward without Kyrie: “It’s not kind of hanging over us…instead of we were living in a world that was very uncertain… that can put an extra strain on everybody.” espn.com/nba/story/_/id… – 4:57 PM

Kyrie Irving reportedly wants to be a voice for the voiceless, but he was a no comment at media day and hasn’t spoken publicly. Turns into cryptic posts and reporters/sources speaking for him + more drama.
