When the Brooklyn Nets signed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving last offseason, they were looking forward to years of contending for possible NBA championships. They certainly did not expect what has happened this season — and it is nothing new.
Irving has been a no-show for the Nets in recent weeks and the organization is unaware of the reasons. Irving has done a lot of good for causes outside of basketball and that cannot be ignored.
However, it is a bad look to disappear during the season and not give the organization a heads up. This has caused some uneasy feelings in the front office of Brooklyn. It would be a complete surprise to see the team make a move but anything is possible in a situation such as this.
The Miami Heat are a team to keep an eye on involving any star. They have been linked to many during free agency in 2021. The biggest fish was taken off the table when Giannis Antetokounmpo signed a long-term extension with the Milwaukee Bucks. This means the Heat are in the market for another big name. Irving could be a surprise name on that list.
This would create another big three in Miami as they hope to get back to the NBA Finals. Here is what a potential deal might look like to send Irving to Brooklyn.
