The NBA offseason will be full of rumors and conspiracies about where players will be moving.
There are always plenty of surprising players on the move that change the landscape of the NBA.
One player that will be a hot topic of conversation is Dallas Mavericks point guard Kyrie Irving.
It would not be an NBA news cycle without some type of noise from Irving.
He is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, meaning he is free to sign with any team.
It is anyone’s guess what Irving will decide to do this offseason.
But, plenty of basketball talking heads will have their thoughts on the matter.
Irving said on his Instagram Live to pay no attention to what people say about where he will play this offseason.
Kyrie Irving says don’t believe certain free agent rumors
“When they speak on my name talking about potential teams, can y’all please stop paying attention to that.”

He mentioned how he plans to take his time before deciding what team to play for.
There will be many teams interested in his talents this offseason.
But, the one that will be brought up the most is the Los Angeles Lakers.
Irving and LeBron James are friends and there have been reports that they want to team up again.
With James’ recent retirement talk, maybe that will lead the Lakers to make a bold move like signing Irving.
This offseason will be full of talk about where Irving can end up.
But the Mavericks certainly want to try and bring him back.
They did not trade for him only to get him for half of a season.
Even though the Mavericks missed the playoffs, they hope a Luka Doncic and Irving combo will be much better in year two.NEXT: Draymond Green Gives His Thoughts On Carmelo Anthony's Retirement
