Kyrie Irving won’t hit the open market for another 11 months, but it’s apparently never too early for buzz to start circulating about which teams will be in the running for his services once he becomes an unrestricted free agent. 

According to the New York TimesMarc Stein, there are already “credible rumblings” the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will pursue Irving when the next free-agency window opens July 1, 2019. 

Stein added “Irving’s intentions are not at all clear at this point.”
