The Brooklyn Nets recently offered point guard Kyrie Irving a contract extension, but it came with some guarantee stipulations, which led to Irving’s trade request, per Shams Charania and The Athletic staff.

“The Nets recently offered Irving an extension with guarantee stipulations, according to league sources, an offer which was declined. Sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations who have been granted anonymity so that they could speak freely say that the extension offer was not well received and that there have been principle differences that have emerged between the Nets and Irving.”
