SNY NBA Insider Ian Begley reports from Brooklyn after the Nets general manager Sean Marks’ end-of-season press conference today:

“It seems like based on where the Nets are, where Kyrie Irving is, they have to bring Irving back next season and for the next couple seasons.”

Back in 2019, Irving signed a four-year, $136.5 million contract with the Nets that included a $36.9 million player option for the 2022-23 season.
