Kyrie Irving officially signs with the Nets

Kyrie Irving officially signed a four-year, $136 million contract with the Nets on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Irving was one of the first players to sign in free agency, but wasn’t unable to sign with Nets until July 6. The contract also includes a $36.5 million player option in 2022-2023. Irving averaged 23.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.5 steals in 67 games for the Celtics last season.

Kyrie Irving expected to sign with the Brooklyn Nets

Kyrie Irving will meet with the Nets on Sunday and it's expected the two sides will agree on likely a 4 year, 141M contract.

Fantasy Impact

After a drama filled campaign with the Celtics, Irving has been rumored all off-season to sign elsewhere. The Nets have been linked to him all off-season, and a change of scenery wouldn't drastically change his usage. DeAngelo Russell will likely move on, making Irving a focal point of the offense. Irving averaged 23.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.5 steals in 67 games for the Celtics last season.

Kyrie Irving has his sites set on the Brooklyn Nets

All-star point guard Kyrie Irving has been linked to the Brooklyn Nets for weeks. Irving is also expected to opt-out of his deal with his current team, the Boston Celtics. With this news, Steve Bullpit from the Boston Herald reported that Irving is prepared to sign with the Nets when he becomes a free agent in July.

Fantasy Impact

This would be a huge signing for the Nets. Brooklyn is also expected to try and keep guard D’Angelo Russell. This would form one the most dangerous backcourts in basketball while allowing Irving to play his natural style of basketball.

Kyrie Irving struggles from the field in Wednesday's Game 5 loss

Kyrie Irving poured in 15 points on 6-of-21 shooting, with one assist, two steals, and three turnovers in 33 minutes in Wednesday's Game 5 116-91 loss to the Bucks.

Fantasy Impact

Irving shot 7-of-22 from the field in Game 4, and came out ice cold shooting a dreadful 6-of-21 in Game 5. The Celtics made the Eastern Conference Finals without him last year, and couldn't get out of the second round with him this year. After an early exit, rumors of Irving leaving Boston may get louder as the off-season approaches.

Kyrie Irving posts double-double in Monday's loss

Kyrie Irving scored a team-high 23 points on 7-of-22 shooting with 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals, and four turnovers in 43 minutes in Monday's Game 4 113-101 loss to the Bucks. He also went 8-of-9 from the free-throw line.

Fantasy Impact

Irving led the Celtics in scoring, but shot poorly from the field once again. He's converted only 19-of-62 shot attempts in this playoff series. Irving will need to improve his shooting efficiency if the Celtics want to avoid elimination on Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bucks.
