Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is changing representation and is expected to partner with Roc Nation Sports.
Irving parted ways with longtime agent Jeff Wechsler on Wednesday, clearing the way for him to ultimately work with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation prior to the start of NBA free agency on June 30th, sources said.

Irving, a six-time All-Star, will become an unrestricted free agent, and league sources say he remains intensely interested in the Brooklyn Nets. The New York Knicks are expected to remain competitive for Irving, too.
Wechsler had represented Irving since he was the No. 1 overall pick out of Duke in 2011, negotiating multiple national marketing campaigns and helping to launch his Uncle Drew soft-drink commercial and movie character. Wechsler helped Irving navigate his way out of Cleveland and into a trade to the Celtics in 2017.
Wechsler also represents Celtics star Jayson Tatum. He previously represented Alonzo Mourning and Penny Hardaway.
This all but signals the end of Kyrie in Boston.
