Danny Ainge Optimistic That Kyrie Irving Will Stay With Celtics

While it's an impossible task to get inside the unique mind of Kyrie Irving, Ainge is still confident that the star point guard will be wearing Celtics green for the foreseeable future. "You take it personal, but at the end of the day, he just wants what's best and he has a legacy he wants to leave, and he has a window he wants to capture, so I think what that brought me back to was, like, 'Alright, how do I get the best out of this group, the success they had past year, and then helping them realize what it takes to win a championship?'" In this picture, Irving #11 of the Boston Celtics looks on during the first half of the game against the Indiana Pacers at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on January 09, 2019.

But the latest report out of Boston says that is highly unlikely. But another came out Friday completely disputing that fact.

Irving is a New Jersey native who starred at St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth. Irving, who has expressed the desire to play in NY and play with Durant in the past, could be the one to lure Durant to Madison Square Garden this summer.

They can only make the move after the trade deadline, and are said to be imploring the Pelicans hierarchy to hold on until summer. "So I wish them the best".

"Feeling emotionally invested, coming off an injury last season, trying to prove something", he said.

After dealing Porzingis, the Knicks have the available cap space to sign two of the top impending free agents. That would create a trio that could certainly compete with the Golden State Warriors, even if Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both stay.

Meanwhile, the Knicks, at 10-40, now own the NBA's worst record and should be among the teams in the running to land Duke phenom Zion Williamson with the first pick in the draft.

"I talk to Kyrie all the time". He is averaging 23.7 points, 6.9 assists and 4.8 rebounds this season.
