Irving is widely considered to be the third-best free agent this offseason, behind Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Irving is not opting into his $21.3 million contract for the 2019-20 season and will become an unrestricted free agent.

Roc Nation is Jay-Z's agency.

However, that is just what Kyrie Irving is doing, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. ROC Nation was founded by former Nets part-owner Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, who played a large role in the team's move from New Jersey to Brooklyn in 2012. The New York Knicks are expected to remain competitive for Irving, too, sources tell ESPN. "The Knicks and Nets are both still interested in signing Durant and Irving together, league sources said".

Free agency is right around the corner in the National Basketball Association and that means rumors will fly all over the place.

Irving had a stellar season for the Celtics on the floor, leading the team with 23.8 points per game while adding a career-high 6.9 assists and five rebounds per contest, earning him a spot on the All-NBA Second Team.

Irving, 27, demanded a trade out of Cleveland in 2017, with Boston supposedly being one of his preferred destinations.

Now, they may very well get that chance.
