By the time it was all said and done, he was forced to take a $5.9 million offer from the Boston Celtics to share point-guard duties with Marcus Smart.
As the NBA's trade rumor mill continues to churn, Kyrie Irving is getting back to his roots.
The Nets star will be hosting the "More Than A Run" event on Thursday night in his home state of New Jersey. It will feature one-on-one contests and an All-Star Game, and multiple NBA players are expected to attend.
Here's everything you need to know about the event, including an updated list of participants.
When is Kyrie Irving's 'More Than A Run' event?
- Date: Thursday, Aug. 4
- Time: 3-9 p.m. ET
- Location: Harwood Arena on Kean University campus (Union, N.J.)
The "More Than A Run" event is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, Aug. 4. The All-Star Game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. ET.
Rumor: Kevin Durant to meet with Nets owner Joe Tsai
Would Durant insist he be traded or rescind his trade request?That’s no secret, it has been that way for weeks, and there are multiple reasons for it. That starts with the time of year — a lot of executives are on vacation — to the perception the Nets’ asking price for the two-time Finals MVP is too high. Teams look at what the Nets are asking for (starting with an All-Star level player under 25) and don’t think they could put together an offer the Nets would accept while remaining a contender. For example, that’s why the Heat won’t include Bam Adebayo in talks, and why the Pelicans have not put Brandon Ingram in any offer.
Irving tweeted on Thursday that admission will be free until 5:15 p.m. ET.
