It appears the Nets are the favorites to land Kyrie Irving over the next week or so as a free agent.
Some are wondering why Irving would have Brookyn as his preferred choice, but appearing on ESPN Tuesday night, Adrian Wojnarowski explained Irving’s thinking.
“The reason he’s gravitated over time toward Brooklyn is the infrastructure that’s in place there,” Wojnarowski said, via NESN.com. “You look at the role players they have. If Kyrie Irving misses 10 games in a season or 12 or 15, he knows Spencer Dinwiddie comes in and starts and they’re not going to lose all those games. You look at the roster in New York. You know, listen, they would try to bring in some veterans if they signed him and KD. But there’s an infrastructure there: Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris, players who have shown they can get a team to the playoffs. Management, coach there — those things have made it more attractive.”
Free agent contracts cannot become official until July 6.
