The Cleveland Cavaliers own Irving’s rights through the summer of 2016, but the young phenom known as “Uncle Drew” will give a big indication of his future this summer.
“The Cleveland Cavaliers will offer Irving a maximum contract extension once they’re allowed to on July 1,” ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst reports.
Don’t be surprised if Irving doesn’t sign his name on the dotted line, however. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Irving’s camp is pushing him out of town.
“It’s no secret that Irving’s camp has been making it known for years now the point guard would like to be elsewhere long term,” Windhorst writes. “No matter how much he denies it.”
