Irving Strongly Denies Report He Wants Out Of Cleveland
Kyrie Irving responded on Twitter to comments from ESPN's Brian Windhorst indicating that he doesn't want to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the long-term.
Irving is eligible for an extension this offseason and a full max offer is almost certain to be made to him by the Cavaliers.
"The truth is, [Kyrie's] camp has been putting out there for years -- years -- that he doesn't want to be in Cleveland," wrote Windhorst. "That they don't want him in Cleveland. He doesn't like Mike Brown. He didn't like Chris Grant. He doesn't like Dion Waiters. He's already gotten a general manager fired. He might get Mike Brown fired. This is the last time -- once he signs he loses all of his leverage -- so this is the last time he gets to enact leverage."
"Sick to my stomach with all these rumors and accusations," wrote Irving. "Can I play without media guessing at my life and putting B.S out for headlines."
Irving also added that "there's no such source as "Kyrie's camp", nothing but nonsense."
