The rumor that Boston Celtic’s star Kyrie Irving could be on the move to the Brooklyn Nets just got another big boost. News has come out that Celtics guard has parted way with his agent, Jeff Wechsler. His new agency is believed to be Jay-Z’s popular brand, Roc Nation.
Jay-Z and the Nets connection
Jay-Z has a strong connection with the Brooklyn Nets; after all, he was a part owner of the franchise a few years ago. And given his strong links with Brooklyn, it comes as no surprise that this change in the agency has fueled the rumors of a move to Brooklyn for Kyrie Irving.
The Nets have made significant progress in the past few years- sorting out their management problems and building their team shrewdly, and even making it to the Playoffs this season. The 27-year-old Celtics star could perhaps be the missing link that could take the Nets all the way.
The talent that Irving possesses is unmistakable- he will bring a significant boost to the offense with his high average of 23.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 6.9 assists.
Making way for Kyrie Irving
The Nets, it seems, are willing to make space for Irving on their roster. They are rumored to be ready to part with D’Angelo Russell, thus freeing them up to acquire two free agents.
So, if the Nets do manage to land Irving, who will pair up with him? The ambitious choice for the Nets is Kevin Durant, with the franchise hoping that Irving can help convince the Warriors star to make a switch.
So, while Durant rests and recovers, he has a decision to make. The Warriors star must choose between a $31.5 million year extension with the Warriors or try his hand at the free agency market in his injured state.
