Wright responded by saying that the ire should be directed towards Irving’s own representation instead of towards him.
The trade rumors about the seven-time All-Star Irving seemed to come out of the blue. But Wright’s report seemed at least plausible given Irving’s skillset overlap with Kevin Durant and James Harden as well as Irving’s noted openness to retiring from the game early.
That said, we know that Irving has a major problem with the media, which manifested itself multiple times last season. This latest back-and-forth with Wright is just another example of that.
