NBA News: Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers Agree To Five-Year Extension

After trade speculation through much of the season, Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed in principle to a five-year max contract extension on Monday night, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:

Throughout the season, there were reports of the Cavaliers likely not offering a max contract and conflict with teammate Dion Waiters. After failing to meet playoff expectations, the Cavaliers entered the NBA draft where they eventually won the draft lottery with just a 1.7 percent chance.

Heading into the off-season, the Cavaliers have made significant changes by hiring head coach David Blatt, drafting top prospect Andrew Wiggins, and having cap room to pursue superstar LeBron James. While most believe James will return to the Miami Heat, the Cavaliers are an intriguing destination with Irving remaining for the next five seasons.

    oh well shows he want to win with one team. plus he could down the road they do have a nice building block of young talent. if this was college cavs would be one of the best if not the best. they just need to fix their SF spot which they did, figure out SG and hope they can have a healthy center

    • jermary motherz

      stfu jeremy! you look like a freaking rapist or a kid rapist or something. fuck your mother

      • jeremy

        im sorry your dream PG not going to be a laker get over it and move on. lakers can just focus on other players

        • Erad

          Btw that faggot ass owner Gilbert was one of main reasons CP3 got donated to the clippers. But no, keep applauding his team

            Allison recently got a nice 6 month old Jaguar by working from a macbook.this website C­a­s­h­d­u­t­i­e­s­.­C­O­M­

    • Suck It

      “if this was college cavs would be one of the best if not the best”. LOL any NBA team would dominate in college.

  • LosLakers

    any point in hiring b scott now that irving is locked up?

    • TYES

      TYes. this is how its got to be to win it all!

    • Joe Haeberle

      Nope. That’s all he would have been good for. To recruit kyrie. Otherwise we need a better coach like Hollins or Karl.

    • borsalino12

      Nope.The best choice will be Lionel Hollins.

  • Jim213

    Scratch another top PG off the list, but Lebron won’t join the Cavs.

  • JohnSmith00

    It’s not official until July 10th, still I can’t help but say it…. Oh look I was right, AGAIN.

  • Andy L

    As expected, there goes my PG of choice. Hope we don’t get stuck with Nash’s corpse and Marshall’s “fire” and “heart”…

  • Maven

    I remember Lakers fans kept saying Kyrie Irving was a lock to be a Laker LOL.He remains a Cavs player for many more years,while the Lakers have to realize it’s time to convince a player that is a star to sign with the Lakers.Eric Bledsoe maybe?

    • Tyson

      no kyrie, no love, no melo, no lebron, no lowry, no nothing

      • borsalino12

        Don’t worry. They may bring back Pau Gasoft for $ 12 mil. a year and we are a champions.Jimmy Buss is lot more concerned about the marketing value of the franchise, than building solid NBA team. That is why, he has offered Mr.24 that much money, even though he can not play at high level. Wrong, wrong and wrong.

    • borsalino12

      Yes. Eric Bledsoe has to be our target now. Make a offer of $ 13 mil. and get him here. I don’t think the Suns will match that kind of money, with all 1-st and 2-nd round draft pics they got last month. They are rebuilding with young and cheap prospects.
      Kyle Lowry has to be our plan B, if for some reasons we can not sign E.Bledsoe.

  • Mikecle

    Exactly why would you guys think Kyrie would come to the Lakers? What would the Lakers offer him or the Cavs, there is no one on that roster that the Cavs want and all the reports you read from the “I know it all media were wrong”. Get over yourselves, become Clipper fans, next you will want Wiggins in 4 years.

    • Erad

      He was going to leave in free agency you dickhead — that was before the POS commissioner awarded their shittiness with ANOTHER number one pick. We wouldn’t have had to offer that shitty franchise anything otherwise. Fuck you and fuck the clippers.

      Do you usually celebrate when the Lakers lose out on 25 year old future HOF’ers?

    • Joe Haeberle

      Really? Same result just different time in the year. Both didn’t win a title only difference, Lakers are more respected. Get outta here with your clippers nonsense.

    • SirHambone

      LAKER 4 LIFE (44 years). Keep Kyrie! In the end, people like you will still be talking shit while the Lakers keep winning titles. And they will win another one before the Clippers! And you may be right, Wiggins may be on our Radar in 4 years, if we do not get Durant. You may cry over how we do it, but that’s what we do! Let you train them, then send them to a real NBA team! LAKERS!

  • Alex

    Kyrie Irving will retire a ringless wonder in Cleaveland

  • Lakers4Life

    No problem at all. Once we get hold of LeBron, he can be a PG like Magic.

  • Kb24


  • comrade24

    Well, there’s one FA we can cross off of our wishlist (for the next 5 years at least) too bad.

  • wangkon936

    This sucks. I was hoping we would have a chance to go after him in FA in 2015.

  • wangkon936

    No bueno…. I had high hopes that he would be available in 2015, along with Love… No bueno man.

  • atakan imren

    i tried my best to convince leBron to come to LA.but there was no answer.there is 2 possible answer of it.he and his friend takin a paycut to stay in miami or he is probably comin’ to best franchise in the history of sports.he and melo would shock the world in the 2 weeks’ time.just wait and see!!!!!

  • atakan imren

    i’m like a connection between kobe leBron and melo.they all know me very well.i can’t say who i am.but i can say this dream trade is 50%.

  • SirHambone

    Remember this haters! We do not get the opportunity to draft top talent because we are to busy competing for and winning titles! Don’t blame us when your top pick “chooses” to be a Laker! They do not want to be on a “training” team their entire career. We will rebuild quickly! That is what we do! Kobe will win another Title

  • borsalino12

    The stupid system of management of M.Kupchak and Jimmy Buss is failing a part, step by step.Kyrie Irwing was our main target, along with Kevin Love in 2015. The first one already signed new deal. The second will do it any day.Then, we will start talking about R.Rondo, K.Durant, R.Westbrook in 2016, and… it will happen the same thing. No NBA star, in his right mind will sign with this two idiots to play for a team, full of bench players, thrown out from other teams. That is why, we need a coach as Lionel Hollins, who can change the course of this organization and build a brand new program here.Taking aged and already washed out veterans for $ 16, $ 19 and $ 23 mil. is not the right formula for success. You need to find serviceable role players with salaries between $ 4.5 and $ 6.0 mil, between the ages of 24 – 27 and keep them here for 4-5 years. One or two higher salaries is OK, but this players have to be really the best and to contribute for the team every single night.
