Appearing on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich (h/t Calli Remillard of Boston.com), Ainge said, “Kyrie just wanted to make that announcement then. I didn’t know he was going to make it then and there. I think it’s kind of neat that he did it where he did it, with all of the fans there on that night.”
Last week, Irving addressed fans at an event for season ticket holders, saying, “If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here next year.”
While the timing surprised Ainge, he noted that he already knew Irving wanted to remain with the organization beforehand.
