It's move that would force Kyrie Irving's hand in free agency, although reports have shown that the cryptic point guard has been showing plenty of interest in signing with the Brooklyn Nets.

Point guard Kyrie Irving will reportedly opt out of the final year of his contract with the Boston Celtics, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, league sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Charania added that the Boston Celtics expected Irving to decline his player option ahead of Thursday's deadline.

He only appeared in 51 games through the regular season (18 starts), missing time with a broken left hand, a left foot contusion and some minor ankle injuries, however he proved to be one of Boston's best backup frontcourt options, bringing his trademark defensive energy throughout the season. By declining it, he'd be eligible to sign a five-year deal worth nearly $190 million with the Celtics. If Irving looks elsewhere he'd be limited to four years and 5% raises, or just over $140 million all-in.

With Irving's 2019-20 option out of the picture, Irving's "Rose Rule" rookie scale extension will officially be a thing of the past. The Celtics may not be afraid of risk, but they would need to take on a pile of it to acquire Davis.

National Basketball Association rules state that teams may not acquire more than one player signed to such a deal at one time.

For years now, there has been speculation about whether one of Ainge's next deals will involve Pelicans star Anthony Davis.
