After the news broke a few days ago, various reports assume that Kyrie Irving will play for the Dallas Mavericks alongside one of the NBA sensations, Luka Doncic. According to information from The Athletic journalist, Shams Charania, the Brooklyn Nets were finalizing the details of a double trade with the Texas franchise.
“BREAKING: The Brooklyn Nets are trading Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, a first-round and multiple second-round picks, sources say,” he wrote.
This information was also confirmed by the ESPN network program, Sportscenter, thanks to sources obtained by the communicator Adrian Wojnarowski.
Breaking: Kyrie Irving is being traded to the Dallas Mavericks for Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie, a 2029 first-round pick and second-round picks to the Nets, sources said.
At the moment there is no official information from any of the franchises or people involved. The first reports claimed that Irving was in negotiations with Brooklyn to renew the relationship, but no agreement was reached and the figure’s request was for the transfer before February 9.
The point guard came to the Nets from the Boston Celtics in 2019 along with Kevin Durant, charging a $35 million dollar contract per year. The current season is not being the best for Irving and his average is around 27 points, five rebounds and five assists per game.
In recent years he has been immersed in various controversies in the NBA due to his refusal to be vaccinated against covid-19 or his closeness to anti-Semitic groups that even cost him the breach of the contract he had with Nike.
