Kyrie Irving, the point guard of Dallas Mavericks, who moved into free agency after playing his last NBA game of the season against San Antonio Spurs on April 9 this year, has asked his fans to stop mentioning him on Twitter about which team he will end up with in the summer. The 31-year-old also talked about making his decision in the next couple of months and left all options open as of right now.

In February, Irving was traded to the Dallas Mavericks from Brooklyn Nets, just before the trade deadline. However, the Mavericks failed to qualify for the playoffs as they finished at the 11th spot in the Western Conference standings while his former side Brooklyn were knocked out of Round 1 in the Eastern Conference Playoffs against Philadelphia 76ers.

Recently, on his Instagram Live, Ky rie Irving was quoted as saying to the fans about his free agency, "Stop mentioning me on Twitter! All y’all fan bases, stop mentioning me right now, please."  The eight-time NBA All-Star further remarked, "Denver’s going to the finals [and] we’re still waiting for Boston and Miami. Can you please leave me the f*** out of this? Please can I just be with my family in peace? Y’all got people at my dinner table discussing what my free agency plans are. Stop that. Y’all think it’s funny s***, but please stop that."

Irving also shared his excitement about the future in the NBA, but told the fans to chill about his upcoming decision. He said, “I am just as excited as y’all are. But you gotta chill, though. You gotta chill, though. Come on.”

The negotiations regarding free agency begins on June 30 when NBA teams will talk contracts with free agents in the market. As far as Kyrie Irving goes, he is currently eligible for a $220.6 million contract for four years in free agency this summer. If the three-time All-NBA player signs a deal with the Dallas Mavericks, he will be eligible for a $272 million contract for five years.
