Kyrie Irving Now Being Linked to the Miami Heat

Will Kyrie stay or will he go?

The Miami Heat are “believed to” have “some level of” interest in the sweepstakes for current Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving, Marc Stein reported in his latest article this week.

Via Marc Stein:

“Miami is believed to have some level of interst in joining the chase for Irving — should the Nets reach the point of actively trying to trade him — and would figure to be a more legitimate landing spot than the teams intitally mentioned given the Heat’s various trade assets. While it certainly ranks as another strain on the imagination to try to picture Irving finding daily comfort in Pat Riley’s rigid South Beach operation, it’s likewise true that the heat have never shied away from the starries of stars or personalities painted as challenging.”

Kyrie has until June 29th to either accept or decline his 2022-23 player option for $36.9 million. If he opts in, it would mark the last year of his deal and he would enter unrestricted free agency next offseason.

Interestingly enough, Jimmy Butler is a big fan of Kyrie.

Maybe Jimmy can knock some sense into Kyrie…
