His current deal with the Nets includes a player option for next season worth more than $36 million.
The 2021-22 campaign for Irving has been filled with plenty of controversy due to his refusal to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Even though Irving has only played in 20 games this season, he’s still producing at a high level during his time on the court. He’s currently averaging 28.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.
The Nets are currently in a furious battle to reach the playoffs, and they’re likely going to have to survive the play-in tournament in order to make it to a series.
