What could NY get for #3 to make this happen?

#3/Knox for Beal

Beal/mitch/DSJ/Dallas picks for AD

Sign Jimmy. Make it happen NY

Kyrie seems fine to just dealing directly with the Nets, so I wouldn't see any real use for a S&T.

If he actually signs with the Nets... the Nets-Celtics thing might be the greatest tortoise and hare story in sports.

Lol please, the Celtics blew the Nets out once last year while the Nets blew the Celtics out once the other two games where close... Let's not put the Celtics on a pedestal when they're closer to a middle of the pack team WITH Kyrie than they are an elite squad.

True however LeBron did this with Cleveland and I believe Bosh did with Toronto as well.

Its his life choice but on paper they dont look great at all. DLo and Sean Marks built that house now watch Kyrie come tear it down.

He “bodied” Ainge because he likely decides to sign with another team? I don’t think Ainge can possibly go on anymore..

Don’t think many are upset losing Kyrie the player after he polluted such a promising situation. Upset to lose the asset probably.

I think they removed the ability to S&T free agents. There's a 6 month grace period or something like that.

Yeah, it's the Nets I don't really understand this for, my only guess is that maybe they have a good idea that they'll be getting another player too, like maybe KD.

At the end of the day, you need talent to win in this league and Irving is one of the better players in the league and an improvement from DLo - even if he is a headcase.

Good luck Nets fans...I'd say it'd be exciting in Kyrie's first game back in Boston but there's a 0.0000% chance he's gonna play in that game lol

Kyrie must be a little dirty on Kyrie, he didn’t live up to the hype he created for himself.
