Kyrie Irving isn’t interested in signing a contract extension with any team right now, according to a report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto.
It makes sense, as Irving has two years left on his contract. There’s no need for him to limit his options right now, and he’ll more than likely test the open market when the time comes. The fact that he has two years left as opposed to one makes it a little bit easier for Cleveland to recoup value in any trade as it won’t be a simple rental situation. The Cavs have met resistance from both the Suns and Wolves in trade talks, as neither is willing to include their brightest young talent just yet. This could drag out into the season.
