“When Kyrie announced he was signing up, I thought, okay, we can move on. This won’t work,’ said Windhorst. “But that’s not what my phone told me. That’s not what the executives told me. That’s not what the cops told me. They say this isn’t over yet, because the Nets made it clear to everyone that they didn’t want the status quo. If nothing else changed, they wouldn’t be happy. They weren’t sure if this suited that situation.
What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kristian Winfield †crisscrossed
Nets sold Patty Mills last season as a culture booster. Hard to see him go. He posted a career-high 11.4 PPG last season, but was exhausted by minutes played in the absence of Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Great to stop by @Brian Lewis † 18:01
Austin Krell †NBAKrell
James Harden early out of BKN, underperformed and is open to less money to help his team.
He was criticized for retiring from BKN while Kyrie Irving selfishly missed more than half of the season due to personal decisions and then tried to force the Nets into a maximum deal. † 5:13 PM

Last @BleacherReport Would any of these 4 teams help Lakers, Nets trade Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving? – If, after the dust settles from their mutual opt-ins, the teams want to reconsider a trade, is there a third team willing to take on RW? How? Blekerreport.com/articles/10040… † 2:50 pm

It doesn’t matter if you love Kyrie Irving or not #Nets, you should consider whether he is worthy of a bet for MVP. Ex-teammate Channing Frye strongly believes in him. The odds are as high as 150-1. LAKE: sidelines.io/nba/kyrie-for-… † 6:28 am

“It wasn’t just because of the lack of the vaccine mandate. The whole way Kyrie has operated over the past few seasons, not just what happened with the vaccine, was part of what Sean Marks, and actually by proxy Joe Tsai, was talking about at the end of the season. “I’d like to say this can be put to bed, but that’s not what my sources say. They don’t know if this will work.” -through RealGM / June 30, 2022
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Get Up that organizations will continue to call about both Irving and Kevin Durant: “Teams will continue to liaise with Brooklyn to ensure they intend to keep this group together,” Wojnarowski said† -through Bleacher report / June 30, 2022
There is no indication the Heat wants to leave 36-year-old Kyle Lowry – who is very close to Jimmy Butler – but Pat Riley has said Lowry needs to get in better shape. The Heat has assured Lowry that it has no intention of trading him for Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving. According to a source informed about the situation. We were told that Lowry was not upset when Riley publicly said his condition needs to improve. -through Miami Herald / June 29, 2022
