Kyrie Irving is renowned for his passion for the game. Fans adore Irving’s talent and dedication to his craft. Kyrie’s trading news has been making waves in the industry for quite some time. Recently, Kyrie Irving reportedly made an unexpected contract extension demand for another year.
Kyrie Irving recently extended his contract with the Brooklyn Nets for another year. This was merely Kyrie exercising his player option; yet, it was most obviously a compromise, as Kyrie had originally desired a four-year contract to keep him with the franchise in the long run.
Given his actions off the court, that the Nets decided that signing him to a new contract would be a poor idea. Kevin Durant has since demanded a trade out of Brooklyn, while Kyrie Irving is also being shopped around. This is certainly not a good time to be Kyrie, especially now that the rumors surrounding the star point guard are getting out of hand.
One example comes from Ric Bucher, a writer who provided some unique insight into Kyrie’s previous contract negotiations on his podcast. According to Bucher, Kyrie told the Nets that he did not want to play back-to-back games and that he only wanted to play three-quarters of the season. Kyrie didn’t want to play more than 60 games, and the Nets’ declined.
It remains to be seen whether Kyrie actually made these demands or if they were made up. Given Kyrie’s past, it’s easy to understand why some people believe this. What do you think about Kyrie? Let’s know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
