The Brooklyn Nets are trading Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Sunday.
The Mavericks are sending Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie, a 2027 first-round pick and second-round picks to the Nets in exchange for Irving, sources said.
Irving’s tenure in Brooklyn ends after a tumultuous four seasons that included injuries, dozens of missed games due to a refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and a suspension this season for promoting a movie that contained antisemitic themes.
Irving, 30, opted into the final season of his deal before the season but requested a trade last week after failing to reach an agreement with Brooklyn on an extension.
Irving has played less than 150 games combined over the last four seasons but remained a max-level player when he was on the court. Irving is averaging just over 27 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game this season on excellent efficiency.
