It has been rumored that Irving has been interested in Brooklyn and with Kemba Walker reportedly planning to sign with the Celtics, Irving needed a new team to play for. As a result of the Nets likely signing Irving, they will reportedly look to sign and trade D’Angelo Russell, who was a restricted free agent.
Irving, 27, is a six-time All-Star, who has spent his career with the Cavaliers and Celtics. In his career, Irving has averaged 22.2 points and 5.7 assists per game.
