Kyrie Irving was looked at as one of the biggest free agents to be on the market this offseason, but his poor showing in the second round of the playoffs has teams turned off a bit.
Despite his bad play, that won’t stop somebody from throwing a bunch of cash at him, but for at least two of them, they have to have a better player than him signed to the squad first.
According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, some teams are “concerned about putting too many eggs in [Irving’s] basket” following his struggles in Boston’s second-round playoff loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Bulpett added that two teams are only willing to sign Irving if they can sign another superstar first to pair him with. While the players weren’t named, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard seem like the top candidates.
It is heavily rumored that Irving will not be re-signing with the Boston Celtics. The rumored franchises that he has been tied to are the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers/
