Let the games begin!! Free agency games that is.
Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has reportedly parted ways with his longtime agent Jeff Wechsler according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who noted that Irving will likely partner with Roc Nation Sports for his representation.
Early Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported Irving will elect against opting into his $21.3 million option for the upcoming campaign and test free agency. While that doesn’t mean he will automatically leave Boston, it does mean the Celtics would have to do move on a new deal soon
Jay-Z founded Roc Nation Sports and sold his stake with the Brooklyn Nets in a corresponding move. Notably, the Nets have been connected to Irving as a potential free-agency destination.
Wojnarowski cited sources who said the point guard had discussed potentially teaming up with Kevin Durant, who is also signed to Roc Nation on the Nets or New York Knicks, although the Golden State Warriors forward rupturing his Achilles during Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals could change that equation.
