While superstar Kevin Durant is awaiting a trade, it seems that disgruntled guard Kyrie Irving may want to stay with the Brooklyn Nets and play out the season.

A source told New York Post reporter Brian Lewis that the guard wants to stay with the franchise. The source told Lewis, “Here is the situation. He opted in, which means he had and he has every intention of playing with the Brooklyn Nets.”

“KD decides he wants out and now everybody is talking about trading Kyrie, right?,” the source questioned. “Kyrie has not asked for a trade. Now, if the Nets don’t want him, that’s something totally different. Kyrie has not said he wants a trade. He opted in. [So where did] the trade conversations come from? Is it because, KD requested a trade and now everybody’s like let’s trade Ky? Kyrie opted in.”

The seven-time All-Star Irving still has another year on his contract, which he opted into. With a lack of viable trade offers, it seems that both the Nets and Irving are patient as we get closer to the season.
