Nike is unlikely to extend Kyrie Irving to a signature shoe deal beyond the 22-23 season.

Irving has a new edition of his shoe set to debut in the fall, but that is expected to be the final year of a lucrative signature series that he has had with Nike since 2014.

"We don't comment on contracts or rumors or speculation. Kyrie remains a Nike athlete," a spokesperson told ESPN on Thursday.

In July, Irving lashed out on social media about the design of the Nike Kyrie 8 edition of his shoe, calling it "trash" and insisting that "I have nothing to do with the design or marketing" and that "Nike plans to release it without my okay."

Irving also navigated his position not to be vaccinated, which made him ineligible for home games with the Brooklyn Nets for much of the season.
