Did something explode? ‘Troublemaker’ Kyrie Irving (30, 188cm) has officially requested a trade.
Local media such as ‘ESPN’ and ‘The Athletic’ announced on the 4th (Korean time) that “Irving has officially requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets.”
This is really bomb news. Irving decided to stay in Brooklyn for another year using his player option ahead of this season. Irving, who has an annual salary of $36 million this season, is one of the biggest free agents in the summer transfer market.
The reason Irving suddenly asked for a trade was because the contract extension failed. Irving, who is about to qualify for free agency, recently started negotiating an extension contract with Brooklyn. When Irving signed a contract extension with Brooklyn, he could sign a contract of up to $200 million over four years. 메이저사이트 However, the process of contract extension between Brooklyn and Irving was not smooth.
According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, “Brooklyn and Irving were negotiating a contract extension, but the negotiations were slow and eventually broke down. And Irving requested a trade today.”
It’s a blast for Brooklyn. Irving is averaging 27.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists this season. Kevin Durant, who played as the first option for the past two seasons, took on the role of an ace while leaving due to injury. With Durant, Ben Simmons, and Irving returning from injury, Brooklyn’s plan to challenge for the championship was in danger of failing.
