The New York Knickerbockers have big plans this summer, plans that inevitably include Kyrie Irving, who must not be enjoying his current situation. He got a team of his own in Boston -- a chance to "be the man"-- but the roster is an ill-fit next to his talents, his teammates probably want him gone, and things have been overall toxic for the franchise.
New York offers him a chance to start over in the biggest market in sports. But which New York team is he really keen on joining? According to the Race and Sportsbook at Caesars Palace, the Nets are the favorite to land Irving this summer.
Does Vegas know something we don't, or are they just assuming the debacle in New York will be too much of a turn off for Kyrie?
Whatever the case, the answer is not nearly as clear as some thought. It no longer a two-horse race between the Knicks and Celtics. Both L.A. teams and now the Nets hold significant odds to sign the All-Star point guard this summer, and it will make things all the more exciting when decision-time occurs this July.
