Rumors: Celtics "worried" Kyrie Irving may leave as free agent in 2019

Irving might be the best iso player in the National Basketball Association - the type of star other stars respect for his otherworldly handle and finishing ability.

No one was more shocked than the Cleveland Cavaliers when star guard Kyrie Irving requested for a trade last summer.

While Irving's comment will likely lead to more speculation and wild trade rumors (because when aren't the Celtics involved in wild trade rumors) this summer, there's no need for Boston fans to panic.

Boston reached the Eastern Conference Finals, despite not having either Irving or Hayward to call upon in the playoffs.

The Celtics would have an easy pitch to James.

The Boston Celtics reportedly have concerns about Kyrie Irving's plans for his free agency, which suddenly looms large next season. Among them is Boston Celtics forward Abdel Nader, who recently went under the knife for a right wrist arthroscopy and ulnar osteotomy, per Jay King of The Athletic.

"I told him I would love to play with a big like you, man, when we played them in the beginning of the season when he came to Boston, " Irving said during the media session after practice on Saturday. He also won't commit to re-signing with Boston.

First and foremost we will run around and do that aspect of the game. "We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football". It's going to be a gruelling adventure but we're very proud of what they are all doing".

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Croatia who are the Super Eagles of Nigeria first opponents at the 2018 FIFA World Cup named their first eleven squad that will face Nigeria on Saturday, June 16 .

There is no easy decision here, as all three plan to anchor the most loaded roster Boston has had to begin a season since 2007-08 with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown flocking them. He averaged 24.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.1 assists, and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 49.1% from the floor and 40.8% from three point range.

In the playoffs, Terry Rozier played well enough in Irving's absence. Irving would probably be the one Ainge would look to deal, as his contract expires following the 2018-19 campaign and he has yet to guarantee a return to Boston.

The good takeaway from that reply is that Irving has his sights set on competing for a title with the Celtics next year.

But, he is under team control for the next two seasons before a $34.1 million player option in the summer of 2020.

However, Ainge would have to understand the risks of this move, especially when offering a package including Hayward. After that, he has the option to opt out of his deal and test the waters of free agency for the first time in his career.

The assumption when Irving joined the Celtics was that he'd be around for years while the team tried to build a dynasty.
