Suggestions the New York Knicks will be aggressive in the free agent market this summer were further strengthened by their surprising decision to trade Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks.

As he spoke with reporters in NY before tonight's road showdown with the Knicks, Irving offered up a near 180-degree turn on his stance. Furthermore, Irving simply could've said, "I don't want to talk about free agency" or, better yet, "I love the Celtics, don't believe everything you read". Also, having cap room allows teams to more easily facilitate trades, which could enable the Knicks to get into the Anthony Davis sweepstakes while New Orleans searches for a deal for its All-Star forward who has asked for a trade.

So the former New Jersey high school star figured it would be a scene when he was back in the area.

Kyrie Irving-to-the-New York Knicks speculation ramped up before the 2018-19 season, when a way-too-early focus was placed on next summer's free agency.

Hassan Whiteside had 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Heat, who lost their second straight overall and have dropped four of the last six. So I'm always going to be mature about that, professional, come to do my job every single day, and really just see what happens.

Irving is in the fourth season of a five-year, $94.3-million contract, but the 26-year-old is unlikely to exercise his $21.3-million player option for the final season.

If we want to understand a guy as complex as Irving, we need the full picture, not just bits and pieces. "I feel like Kyrie likes it in Boston", Ainge said Thursday in a radio interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston.

Al Horford and Gordon Hayward contributed 14 apiece, Jayson Tatum chipped in 13 and Australian Aron Baynes made nine.

"I'm appreciative of the fan support I get in any arena", he said.

"There were some real good positive things to take from the game all the way around", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

"I don't owe anybody s--", Irving added, according to the New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy.

The context: "I think it was just the excitement, feeling emotionally invested coming off an injury last season trying to prove something, trying to be very much of a team-oriented player, which I am naturally. I can't personalize that and put that on me", Fizdale said.
