Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving Deflects Questions About His Future
(NEW YORK) -- Still stinging from the departure of Lebron James a few years ago, Cleveland Cavaliers fans might start getting worried about the future of point guard Kyrie Irving.
Irving is a budding superstar, and one of the most exciting players in the NBA, but he's been non committal when asked about his future.
"I'm not really worried about that right now," Irving told the Akron Beacon Journal's Jason Lloyd. "Right now I'm focused on the year ahead, my third year, then I'll worry about that in the summertime. Right now I'm a Cavalier. This is where I am. All that future stuff, I'm not really worried about."
Irving is in line for a five-year contract extension worth $80 million next summer, but has yet to declare himself a Cavalier for life.
Although he's been a bit injury prone, it is hard to deny Irving's talent when he plays. Last season, the 21-year-old Irving averaged 22.5 points and 5.9 assists per game. He was the number one overall pick in the 2011 Draft by the Cavaliers, a pick they earned by finishing with the second-worst record in the NBA following the departure of Lebron James.
