Kyrie Irving is certainly one of the best basketball players in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets star might also retire as well due to his refusal to adhere to the COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Due to his refusal to get vaccinated, Kyrie Irving could miss up to 45 games this season. It seems Irving won’t be traded from the Brooklyn Nets either.
From the looks of it, Kyrie Irving couldn’t care less about missing out on the seasons as even his coach has accepted that fact. Irving was put on blast for it and heavily criticized by several people, including former NBA players such as Raja Bell.
According to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Brooklyn Nets have “taken incoming calls” about Kyrie Irving. However, they are not making any calls themselves to inform other teams he’s available. So it seems the team has no intention of trading Kyrie Irving anytime soon.
Obviously, there is interest in Kyrie Irving from other teams, but the Nets aren’t going to likely let him go this soon.
Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks recently revealed that Kyrie Irving will not practice or play for the Brooklyn Nets until he is ready to be a full-time participant. It is unlikely Irving will get vaccinated anytime soon from the looks of it and that is not going to change. At least for Irving’s sake, he has some supporters, even if we can’t condone what he is doing.
