Rumor: Kyrie Irving was at club at same time as Nets players, but they weren’t together

Kyrie Irving, Celtics

There has been a lot of smoke regarding Boston Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving going to the Brooklyn Nets this summer, and the rumor mill was churning again on Thursday.

It all started with this:

However, the idea that Kyrie Irving was actually hanging out with the Nets players was refuted by others, though they apparently were all at the same club:

Whatever the case, the internet will surely run with this given all the rumors surrounding Irving’s potential move from Boston to Brooklyn. Reports of Irving wanting to leave Boston have been surfacing since late last calendar year, and now most people believe he’ll be leaving.

The potential addition of Irving could add a star alongside starting point guard D’Angelo Russell (if he sticks around) and a solid core of players like Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen.

The Nets surprised many this past season by earning the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference. Their playoff tenure was short-lived, though, as they lost their first-round series to the Philadelphia 76ers in five games.

There are still many factors that could go into Irving’s offseason decision, including whether or not the Celtics can acquire the MVP-caliber Anthony Davis in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans.

New York could also intrigue Kyrie Irving with a potential pair-up with Kevin Durant.

NBA free agency begins June 30, but players cannot sign contracts with teams until July 6.
