2019 Free Agency
Reports: Kyrie Irving, Nets agree to deal
From NBA Twitter and media reports
Per various reports, All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets have agreed on a four-year deal worth $141 million.
While Durant will likely have to sit out all of the 2019-20 season as he rehabs from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered during Golden State’s Finals loss to Toronto, Irving will immediately step into a promising young Nets lineup that made the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.
Irving, a six-time All-Star, averaged 23.8 points last season for the Celtics. He is averaging 22.2 points for his career to establish himself as one of the NBA’s most dynamic scorers.
