Kyrie Irving not closing door on LeBron James reunion in Boston

Kyrie Irving will become an unrestricted free agent in 2019

Kyrie Irving will become an unrestricted free agent in 2019

"Contractually, financially, [an extension] just doesn't make any sense", Irving said, per Forsberg.

Irving spoke with the media on Tuesday and answered several questions, including some about his contract status.

Meanwhile, Irving, also confirmed that he will not be extending his current deal with the Celtics, which will allow him to become a free agent at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Boston will be healthy next season and depending on what happens with LeBron and his free agency, the Celtics should be considered the early favorite in the East.

Irving recently spoke to the New York Times and when asked about his future with the Boston Celtics, he wasn't very clear.

And Broussard believes the 33-year-old would be a great fit in Boston before stating Danny Ainge could trade either Hayward or Irving away in another huge roster shake-up. "You saw guys who will literally be stars in this league for years to come".

"For me, I'm just glad everyone got to learn how special they were on a bigger stage".

Yes, just one season removed from James' breakup with star point guard Kyrie Irving, the All-Star duo may just wear the same colors yet again, this time in the iconic green and white.

"My attitude is really just redemption next year", he said. "So I'm excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my craft and things outside of it". He said he is grateful for the opportunity to have an "open dialogue" with management and the coaching staff about the direction the team is going and fully trusts their decisions are best for the team's future.

He praised "our anchor" Al Horford, and said he is looking forward to having "my man, Gordon" back in training camp when Gordon Hayward is set to return to the floor after missing all but 315 seconds of their first season together with a catastrophic ankle injury.

Via the Tim Kawakami podcast, here's what ESPN's Chris Haynes had to say about the possibility of a LeBron becoming a Celtic.

"The challenge is now we have championship pedigree", he said.

"In this business, I've kind of experienced it all and I've seen a lot, so we'll see what management decides", Irving said, as quoted on NBA.com.

Irving isn't quite ready to take part in any practices. Irving has earned every bit of that money, and absolutely nobody should have expected him to sacrifice something with a contract extension.
