2018-06-13T023340Z_1_LYNXMPEE5C05E-OCASP_RTROPTP_2_CSPORTS-US-BASKETBALL-NBA-IRVING-LEBRON

Kyrie Irving didn't have much to say when asked about the possibility of former teammate LeBron James joining him on the Boston Celtics this offseason. "In this business, I've experienced it all and I've seen a lot, so we'll see what management decides," Irving told reporters Tuesday. Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers last offseason after playing in James' shadow for three seasons, and he got his wish when he was dealt to the Celtics.

Kyrie Irving says signing extension with Celtics ‘just doesn’t make any sense’

a9ff74500593893c489fe5549ffc8652

Kyrie Irving can give you 86 million reasons why he shouldn’t sign an extension with the Celtics this summer. Irving is in the same boat that both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green found themselves in — leaks come from somewhere about how their teams want to sign them to an extension next summer. The question is why a player would want to do that (and no, Irving’s injury concerns do not override 86 million).

Kyrie Irving told reporters that it doesn’t make any sense to sign a long-term deal with the Celtics this summer, and he’s right. Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving has one year remaining on his current contract, but is eligible to lock in for a long-term extension this summer worth around $101 million over four years. Irving told reporters on Tuesday that it doesn’t make sense to extend this summer, despite questions about his long-term health over lingering knee issues.

Is Ben Simmons Adding a 3-Point Shot to His Game?

For as good as Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons' inaugural year in the NBA was, a campaign that could very well end with Rookie of the Year honors, there remains a glaring hole in his game: He doesn't really shoot. Simmons' lack of a jumper heavily contributed to the 76ers' demise in the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season when the Boston Celtics packed the paint and took away Simmons' driving lanes due to a lack of fear of him hurting them from the outside. Although there was an expectation that Simmons would spend much of the offseason working on his jumper, it appears the former LSU standout might want to take his range even farther out.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and forward Kawhi Leonard, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year, are trying to schedule a meeting as soon as this week to smooth over differences after a rocky 2017-18 campaign, according to the San Antonio Express-News. Per the report, they plan is to discuss "any issues or concerns Leonard may have, and hopefully come to a decision" about a possible five-year, $219 million supermax extension that the two-time first-team All-NBA player is eligible to sign this offseason. The report adds that Leonard is still rehabbing his quad injury but is "96, 97 percent" healthy and expects to be ready for training camp in September.
