Kyrie Irving is finally staying in Brooklyn!!!

Kyrie Irving is finally staying in Brooklyn!!!

He will definitely never cease to amaze us: while his departure from the Nets seemed practically done for a few hours, Kyrie Irving took everyone the wrong way and finally decided to activate his $36.5 million player option for the 2022/23 season!

To announce his decision, a cryptic message, as often with him, relayed by Shams Charania of The Athletic: “ Normal people make the world go round, but those who dare to be different lead us into tomorrow. I made my decision to activate my clause. See you in the fall“.

According to ESPN, it was the low feasibility of a “sign-and-trade” that led to the decision of the Brooklyn leader, who will therefore honor his commitment to the Nets. He will play well the fourth (and surely last?) Season of his contract, signed in the summer of 2019.

The Irving file, so publicized in recent days, is therefore closed, before the start of the “free agency”. Probably a relief for his franchise, which will be able to start preparing “quietly” for the 2022/23 season…
