NBA: Kyrie Irving received a bewildering proposal
While Kevin Durant animates the news in the NBA, it is also the case of Kyrie Irving. Like his friend, the back finds himself at the heart of trade rumors during this offseason. If by the latest news, Irving had left to stay at the Brooklyn Nets next season, the tensions would be very real between the franchise and the player. Moreover, one of the reasons for this conflict has just been revealed.
This summer, the Brooklyn Nets certainly did not expect to be shaken up like this. After another bitter failure in playoffs (elimination in the conference semi-final against the Boston Celtics 4-0), Kevin Durant would have decided to ask for his franchise trade. But the troubles did not stop there for the New York formation. Indeed, his second star Kyrie Irving would also like to slam the door. A huge snub for the project of net.

Kyrie Irving on the side of Kevin Durant?
However, the latest information suggested that Kyrie Irving finally turned around and decided to stay Brooklyn Nets next season. However, a recent event could change everything. So, according to Shams Charania of The Athletica meeting would have taken place recently between Kevin Durant and Joe Tsai. During this interview, the winger would have reiterated his trade request to the owner of the net but not only. K.D. would also have given an ultimatum to his management: if brooklyn wants him to stay he will have to fire Steve Nash and Shean Marks. The journalist adds that During would have no confidence in the direction the team is currently taking. But Joe Tsai quickly reacted by siding with the coach and the general manager. Problem, according to information from the New York Post, Kyrie Irving would also be in conflict with the management of brooklyn and would also claim the heads of Nash and of Marks. The American media had even specified that Irving “hate these guys”. Information, however, denied by the clan of the player. But who is telling the truth? In any case, a new revelation comes to support the hypothesis thatIrving is indeed in conflict with its frankness…
The Nets’ humiliating contract for Kyrie Irving
The tensions between Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets would be very real and the reason has just been revealed. Indeed, no agreement for an extension has been found between the player and his franchise. And a very good friend of Kyrie Irving, Ying Kopin, has just unveiled the contract that the net offered the player: “Recently, I’ve seen a lot of rumors about Kyrie Irving’s contract, and 90% are just there for the headlines. Let’s break things down to get a better understanding of this contract. Already, the Nets and the player have agreed to a 5-year, $250 million max contract, with additional clauses, including: If Kyrie played less than 30 games during the season, he would have received only 15% of His salary. 60 games played, 85% of salary. 65 matches, 90% of salary, and 72 matches, 100% of salary received. […] For example, after 30 years, Stephen Curry would never have received 100% of his salary. Would you accept such a contract? » said Kopin on instagram. We therefore understand better why Kyrie Irving did not accept this offer, and why he is currently in conflict with his management. With this lunar contract, the All-Star would be paid according to the number of games played. Thus, in the event of a serious injury at the start of the season, the player could only receive 15% of his salary.
Kyrie Irving’s crazy request
If the proposal of net seems quite unreal, Kyrie Irving also would have made a totally absurd request: “The media said he didn’t want to play back-to-back. It’s wrong. He just wants to be able to rest when his body is down. But with this contract, he should have forced himself, even if it meant seriously injuring himself. adds his friend. Kyrie Irving would therefore only want to play when he feels good. Hence the deadlock in the negotiations. As a reminder, Irving would be in the sights of Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat…
