NBA free agency is still about a month away, but that has not stopped the rumor mill from heating up big-time as the 2018-19 season draws to a conclusion.
We’re looking at the most impressive free agent class in recent history, including Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard.
Now if you were to ask me, and I will pretend you did, I doubt KD or Kawhi are going anywhere.
But to just about anyone following the game, or his antics the past few seasons, most doubt Kyrie will be back in Beantown come next season.
And while the popular destination for Kyrie has been New York, a new wrinkle emerged yesterday when he was linked to the Brooklyn Nets.
The Knicks have long had their eyes on both Irving and Durant. However, it’s the Nets who are coming off a surprising playoff appearance. They seem to be a more attractive free agent destination than the long-downtrodden Knicks.
Seems like when the Knicks lost out on the Zion Williamson sweepstakes they lost on Kyrie, too. I think that second loss is a blessing.
