Boston celtics are concerned that kyrie irving will sign with the knicks in 2019 per realgm wiretap

"I think they're scared," said Chris Mannix. "I think they're scared and should be scared to some degree of Kyrie Irving walking in 2019. I know he had a great year, but you know there are people in Cleveland that will tell you that the Knicks should be considered a real threat for Kyrie Irving. Because Kyrie had talked about it, about playing with the Knicks with some players in that Cleveland locker room from what I was told.
"You know things can change. Obviously you go to Boston and you become the face of the franchise. You're on a winning team. Maybe the mindset has changed significantly?"

Shams Charania replied to Mannix's assertion with the expectation from Irving that he would be with the Celtics over the long-term.

"I know Kyrie Irving's mindset when the trade happened was 'Boston is my home for the foreseeable future.'"

Using the knicks as leverage through the media a full year ahead is new heights.

Trae Young can go kick rocks. Go Mikal and then gear up for Kyrie in 2019.

I love this song.

Yall don’t be realize how much Jersey idolizes Kyrie. Trust me I went to college in jersey, am dating a hooper female from jersey. They treat him like a god. I honestly think it’s gonna happen.

Top 3 pick this year + Kyrie next off season and we’re talking about being a contender.

At worst it's incentive for the Knicks not to give out any dumb contracts this offseason. Should at least keep space open. Would obviously love to sign him, but can't see why he would leave a stacked Boston team.

People in the Orange & Newark treat Kyrie like a heroic figure. Kyrie is a super smart guy. I believe.

Only thing I worry about with Kyrie is health and we'd have him entering his 30's... but gah damn a Kyrie/Frank backcourt with potentially Mikal, THJ and KP in the cut too... oh boy that squad would be a problem....

Boston maybe should be more concerned when LeBron leaves Cleveland for Golden State.

Yup. the Knicks thinking they have a shot at one of these max players (whether they do or dont) is great because it will prevent them from blowing there load on someone stupid going forward.
I dont think it is out of the realm of possibility. Player movement is about to get crazy anything could happen and one of these stars might want to take the NY market

If the knicks roll out only 1 year deals, stretch Noah, and waive Lance for his last year. We looking at over 40 million of cap space In 2019 believe.

Kyrie will have a long career ALA Chris Paul. I think getting Kyrie at 30 is fine. Let me dream for a second and we trade our 2019 unprotected pick + Mudiay + whatever for Bamba or Bagley.

KP/Oquinn
Bagley/Penava (our 2nd rnd pick. Kid will be a stud if given a shot)
Mikal B/Hardaway/Dotson
Frank/Hardaway/Dotson
Kyrie/Burke/Defensive G

Im cool with bringing Super Cool Beas back to the garden as well on a friendly deal. I kind of want to see Beasley go to Golden State and chase a ring.

plus a lotto pick this year and next year. Kyrie would be Prime Kyrie at age 27. 3rd year Frank. Healthy KP. Coaching philosophies already set with the new coaches. We can only hope. ONLY 1 year deals from now on. We CANNOT sign Kyle for no big money if we want 40 million plus for 2019.
