There’s a “growing belief of uncertainty” that Kyrie Irving will not re-sign with the Celtics this summer, via Yahoo Sports.— Legion Hoops (@LegionHoops) January 28, 2019
For starters, let's take a look at Kyrie's recent off-the-court actions: He chastised teammates after an embarrassing loss and proceeded to call LeBron James to apologize for moments of immaturity during their time in Cleveland (which only spiced up rumors of Kyrie eventually LeBron in Los Angeles).
His suspect leadership skills certainly don't add to the value he brings to the franchise. And though we know Boston loves Kyrie, the plan to build around the five-time All-Star is simply a pipe dream at this point-- there's no guarantee he'll even sign a contract extension there this summer.

I would not be surprised if Danny Ainge was willing to re-route Kyrie Irving as part of a massive 3-team trade in order to get his hands on Anthony Davis...
The Celtics had originally planned to go after Davis this summer, but that flies out the window if he gets dealt prior to the Feb. 7 trade deadline.
Trading for Davis NOW will finally give Boston a bonafide, committed star that will complement rather than ridicule, its valuable young core. And the only way to do that is to unload Irving.
