Kyrie Irving signed his contract. The Cavaliers now hope LeBron James will accept one from them.
As they await a decision from James, the free agent whose delay in choosing where he’ll play next has the NBA at a virtual standstill, the Cavaliers announced that Irving has signed his five-year, $90 million extension.
The Cavs reached an agreement with Irving on the deal last week in the first hours after free agency opened. The deal couldn’t be announced until Thursday, when the league’s moratorium ended.
Irving is now under contract with Cleveland through the 2019-20 season.
“We are excited that Kyrie has officially committed to be here long-term with the Cleveland Cavaliers,” owner Dan Gilbert said in a release. “The future has never been brighter as we are building the team and franchise for sustainable success. Kyrie is obviously a very big piece of our plan.”
