Irving seeking trade, seeking 4-year, $200 million contract
The Brooklyn Nets may have made a big mistake in a past life.
According to ESPN reporter Wojnarowski, Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving (guard, 188cm, 88kg) asked for a four-year, $200 million contract before requesting a trade.
It seems that Irving wanted a full guarantee of the terms or at least a contract with a player option in the final year of the contract. However, Brooklyn did not accept this, and since he went through a lot with Irving, he is expected to add several bonus clauses or non-guaranteed conditions.
Afterwards, Irving requested a trade. Reporter Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』 announced that there was a big difference of opinion between Brooklyn and Irving over the contract extension. Looking at the specific information, it was confirmed that he requested a contract for 4 years and 198.5 million dollars. Naturally, it was difficult for Brooklyn to accept this, and Irving, who was dissatisfied, demanded a trade.
Last summer, the situation was not much different. Irving, who had a player option, asked Brooklyn to extend his contract, but Brooklyn did not accept it. In response, Irving used the option to become a free agent and then threatened to move to another club. He even revealed his intention to reduce the ransom. But he stayed on with an option, and his salary this season is about $37 million.
He has appeared in 40 games this season. He is averaging 27.1 points (.486 .374 .883), 5.1 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1 steal in 37 minutes per game. He is consistently averaging over 27 points and serves as a backcourt ace. At the beginning of the season, he always caused a lot of controversy with unnecessary remarks, but for some reason, this season, after the club’s tremendous persuasion and education (?), he is participating in the game without difficulty.
As he played in many games, Brooklyn also jumped to the top of the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn, which sacked coach Steve Nash at the beginning of the season and partially reorganized the leadership system, continued its steep rise and showed off its appearance as a presidential candidate. Brooklyn is 31-20 so far this season, sitting in 4th place in the conference. 토토사이트
Maybe that’s why Irving asked for a large contract as a guarantee condition, perhaps the reason for the high attendance rate. In the meantime, he seemed to be receiving a high salary and not receiving a long-term contract. Still, he’s hoping for a much bigger deal than the one he’s currently fulfilling (four years, $136.49 million). For reference, he has only appeared in 103 games over the past three seasons. He has appeared in more than 40 games only twice, including this season.
