Irving will become free agent

Opting in would have led to a $21.3 million salary for Irving, but he's expected to get a whole lot more than that as an unrestricted free agent.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant's Achilles tendon injury will have a significant impact on 2019 National Basketball Association free agency in general - and on Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving in particular.

After originally revealing at an event at the TD Garden that he'd re-sign with the team, Irving admitted in February that he didn't "owe anybody s--" when he was asked about his impending free agency. Boston had expected this move, Charania reports, and now will gear up to make its pitch to keep Irving in the fold. He was named an All-Star for the sixth time in seven seasons and made the All-NBA Second Team for the first time in his career.

A week ago, Celtics president Danny Ainge addressed the media about Boston's looming summer.

Man with cocaine on his nose tells deputies it is not his
A deputy reportedly noticed a white powdery substance around Jimenez's nose that she recognized to be cocaine. One of the deputies nearly immediately spotted a white powder on his nose and identified it as cocaine.

Irving and the Celtics saw their season come to a close when they were eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Celtics can offer Irving a bigger deal than anyone else this offseason, but the expectation is he'll be signing elsewhere, despite his pre-season proclamation that he would sign long-term in Boston this summer.

"I don't know, I mean, there's not much I can say about that, honestly".

The Celtics, Pacers and Jazz could make a deal for Conley, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski said Tuesday during ESPN's mock draft special.
