Kyrie Irving’s days as a member of the Boston Celtics are numbered.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Irving is expected to leave the Celtics and sign with the Brooklyn Nets when free agency starts on June 30th.
Irving has been communicative and forthright with top Celtics officials since the season ended, with private and public signals that he will leave the organization in free agency — likely for the Brooklyn Nets, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. https://t.co/EupfcYxhsg

This comes on the heels of a Boston Globe report on Monday that suggested Irving had shut down communication with the Celtics.
Marc Stein of The New York Times also reported that the Nets believe they are primed to land Irving.
The Nets strongly believe they are the frontrunners to sign Kyrie Irving when free agency commences June 30, league sources say. That and much more en route in a SLAMMED edition of your @nytimes NBA newsletter that will be invading inboxes soon

There’s still 12 more days until free agency even begins.
