Sean Marks, the GM of the Brooklyn Nets, spoke with the media and referred to the contract extension talks with Kyrie Irving and James Harden.
Marks said the Nets have already started negotiating with the two superstars. He is also expecting to be in advanced talks with both Irving and Harden within the next two weeks.
“We’ve had very positive conversations with both of those guys. We’re looking forward to sitting down with them over the next two weeks and furthering those discussions.
Those guys know exactly how we feel and I think they’ve been vocal about wanting to be part of this and building this together. I think we’ve got an opportunity to do something special here for the foreseeable future,” Marks said, via France24.
James Harden and Kyrie Irving are under contract with the Nets this season. However, they have player options for the 2022/23 season. This means they will be able to opt out and become free agents next offseason unless they re-sign with Brooklyn.
