Brooklyn Nets To Reportedly Entertain Offers For Kyrie

The Brooklyn Nets had a pretty successful season, if not for injuries, who knows how far they would have gone. Unfortunately for Brooklyn, they couldn’t keep their Big 3 intact for the entire playoffs. Kyrie Irving hurt his ankle pretty badly, and James Harden’s hamstrings went kaput. Now that their season is officially over, they might be looking to make some moves.

Apparently Kyrie Irving annoyed some of the higher ups, and according to reports, they wouldn’t be too upset if they moved him.

According to Matt Sullivan, Irving could be available in a trade this summer after “annoying” some members of the organization.

Via Celtics Lab 52:

“Let me give you guys a little news, I’m not sure that’s been out there. I’ve heard that Nets ownership was quite upset with Kyrie’s ‘pause,’ especially that maskless party that turned his psuedo-paternity leave into more like a COVID suspension. And in the last week I’ve heard rumblings – whispers, really, because cracking the Nets is kind of like breaking into the Kremlin, that Brooklyn GM Sean Marks would maybe, possibly, apparently be willing to at least listen to a trade offer for Kyrie this offseason.

Now, I’m not sure what the market for Kyrie is at this point. It’s not like Ben Simmons giving you the headache on the court. It’s that complex personality that comes from off the court. I think it’s been annoying some people in the franchise. I can’t speak to his teammates, who obviously want to play with one of the world’s best and get him back there.”


The Nets knew what they were getting with Kyrie.

You take the good with the bad, and had he not gotten injured, I’m pretty sure they would have made it to the Finals.

Of course they have to give this Big 3 another go at it before they jump ship.
