Kyrie Irving: NBA All-star Reportedly Requesting Trade From Brooklyn Nets Before Deadline | NBA News

NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving reportedly requested the trade from the Brooklyn Nets ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

According to the report, the Nets have been made aware of Irving’s claim and the All-Star eight times are hoping to find a new home before the February 9 trading deadline.

The Nets were also told that Irving has no interest in staying with the organization after his contract expires in July.

This season alone has been a rough one for Irving, who still scores 27.1 points per game with 5.3 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 40 games despite off-field problems.

Irving was suspended by the Nets in November following his social media posts promoting an anti-Semitic-themed movie. He sat out eight games and apologized before returning, saying, “I’m not anti-Semitic or any of that.”

The incident caused Nike to end an eight-year partnership with Irving, who turns 31 next month.

In total, Irving played just 29 games between 2021-22, averaging 27.4 points with 5.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds.

Irving’s lack of availability is said to have led to a rift with former teammate James Harden, who was transferred to the Philadelphia 76ers a year ago.

In 12 NBA seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers (2011-17), Boston Celtics (2017-19) and Nets, Irving averaged 23.3 points with 5.7 assists and 3.9 rebounds.

He won his only NBA title in 2016 as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, while playing alongside LeBron James.

After he was the #1 overall draft pick in 2011 from Duke, Irving won the NBA Rookie of the Year title in 2012. He was also the MVP of the All-Star game in 2014.
