Kyrie Irving West, Starter, is Shipped to the Bench in a Trade Proposal: Report.

For those who might be late to the party, the Brooklyn Nets have opted to keep Kyrie Irving off the squad until he receives his first dosage of COVID vaccination. Home games, away games, and team practices are all examples of this. Irving has essentially become an afterthought on the Nets’ roster. They’ve had a difficult start, going 4-3, and are currently in last position in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. As a result, many feel the Nets would deal Irving for the proper price.

The Nets have agreed to trade Kyrie Irving to the Clippers as part of a trade proposal.

The Nets have struggled without Irving but have managed to keep their heads above water. With Kevin Durant of the Nets performing like an MVP candidate and James Harden progressively regaining his form, adding another player might give this squad a tremendous boost. In a recent trade proposal, the Nets sent Irving and Jevon Carter to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Greg Swartz of “Bleacher Report.”

The Nets will receive Eric Bledsoe, Luke Kennard, Keon Johnson, a 2028 first-round selection, and second-round picks from 2022 through 2025 if the complete deal is accepted. A good haul for the Nets, both now and in the future. Irving would be able to play even if he didn’t get the immunization, according to Swartz.

“While Los Angeles has joined New York and San Francisco as cities with severe vaccine restrictions, the new law does not apply to Staples Center, meaning Irving can play in all home and away games whether or not he is vaccinated,” writes Swartz.

As a result of the trade, Joe Harris may be assigned to the second unit.

Getting a shooter like Kennard also means the Nets will be able to start him in place of Joe Harris, who will be moved to the bench. Harris, who was the NBA’s greatest long-range shooter last season, has struggled to get off to a good start this season. Harris is averaging 11.0 points per game in seven games, shooting 36.5 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range… Nokia News – Quick Summary
