During a recent episode of “The Hoop Collective” podcast, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported Durant and Irving are in nearly constant communication.

Irving angrily blasted the notion that he and Durant were somehow plotting their futures during the chat.

Kyrie Irving ‘definitely’ taking games off before playoffs The Boston Celtics are comfortably settled into the middle of the Eastern Conference with less than a month remaining in the regular season. Looking ahead to the playoffs, Kyrie Irving has made it clear he fully intends to take it easy before the postseason battles take place. “I’m definitely taking some games off before the playoffs,” Irving said, per Jay King of The Athletic. “It just makes no sense to put emphasis on these regular-season games when you know you’re gearing up for some battles coming in the playoffs.” Somewhat ironically, Irving also says the Celtics aren’t ready to settle into a playoff mentality just yet.

Like, do you get that? And then I’m asked questions about that? That’s what disconnects me from all that s—.”

As things stand, there’s no telling how things will play out with Irving, Durant and the Knicks on the free-agency front, but many insiders still believe Durant will ultimately end up in New York.
