There is "mutual interest" between the Brooklyn Nets and Kyrie Irving, according to Anthony Puccio of

Irving has been monitoring the Nets' development this season and is considering signing with the team, according to sources.

The Nets are also said to be interested in signing Irving even if they re-sign D'Angelo Russell, who is a restricted free agent. The team would ideally like to pair two max free agents together, but are open to pairing Irving and Russell in their backcourt.

Irving and Russell reportedly have a good relationship, with both players having played for Kevin Boyle in high school.
