Nets point guard Kyrie Irving has requested a trade and would like to be moved by the trade deadline on February 9th, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports. If Irving isn’t traded, Charania reports he will not re-sign with the team in when he enters free agency this offseason.
In his fourth year with the team, Irving has played in 40 games for Brooklyn this year, averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game. The Nets currently have a 31–20 record, good enough for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and are just 5.5 games back of the No. 1 seeded Celtics.
