When NBA’s Dallas Mavericks traded the megastar player and guard Kyrie Irving, everyone predicted the amount of risk being taken by the Mavericks.

It was a gamble for the Dallas Mavericks to acquire Kyrie Irving in the NBA trade deal since a recent news report suggested that the player might agree to a long-term extension in the Mavericks.

Kyrie Irving’s Unpredictability and Free Agency Decision

In a press conference, Irving was not willing to talk about the contract extension with the media reporters until the season ends.

For a short period of time, it seemed like Kyrie would be a risky trade for the franchise to re-sign him in the summer.

However, as per a recent report by Marc Stein (NBA Insider) revealed that Kyrie is not open to signing a contract extension with the Dallas Mavericks. But if everything goes as planned, there is a high chance of a contract extension between Dallas and Irving.
