According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving is opting into his $37 million player option for the 2022-23 season. Irving is bypassing multiple opt-in and trade scenarios to fulfill his four-year commitment to the Nets and Kevin Durant.

Following the news, Kyrie Irving posted a new tweet:

This past season, Irving averaged 27.4 points, 5.8 assists, and 4.4 rebounds in 29 starts but missed a significant number of home games due to his unvaccinated status.
