Earlier today Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant discussed Kyrie Irving’s future and how ultimately it isn’t his decision.
Durant came back to his podcast The ETC’s with KD this morning and was able to reflect on the Nets-Irving contract situation along with the possibility that Irving ships somewhere else.
Durant said the following after being asked what his involvement in the process was:
It’s no involvement at all, I mean I can’t be involved, this is this man’s livelihood. This is much bigger than me. Being a free agent is one of the most important times in your career. So that can’t be swayed by anybody else. Wait for the time. I mean, it’s nothing happening right now. I don’t think he’s made a decision or opting out until the 29th. I think. So I just kind of let let things play out and see what happens. But, you know, keep the regular contact up with Ky. We’ll see what happens man just so much out of my control. I don’t want to get, be a part of it you know I mean so we’ll see what happens though.
When relating the story to former coworkers, Durant completely agreed with the podcast host that he isn’t “directing” Kyrie’s career.
