Kyrie Irving uncertain on future despite making pledge to Boston Celtics

Kyrie Irving uncertain on future despite making pledge to Boston Celtics”

An interesting Friday night at Madison Square Garden in NY for Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving.

The Knicks believe that's less of a problem now under President Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry, who have focused on cleaning up the culture that has been so toxic under Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan.

The contest came just one day after the Knicks traded injured Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks which will give NY the funds to go after top free agents this summer.

Per ESPN's Ian Begley, Irving added, "Ask me July 1", but the Celtics were still "at the head" of the race to sign him in free agency.

The Celtics are hoping to have Irving sign a new contract in the offseason as they build towards a title contender.

Fed to be "patient" with rate changes
Charlie McElligott, cross-asset macro strategist at Nomura, said the Fed "utterly "bent the knee" to the stock market ". Powell said the policy change was not driven by a "major shift" in the Fed's baseline assessment for the U.S. economy.

"I respect the Knicks organization", Irivng said Friday.

Meanwhile, the Knicks just shipped Kristaps Porzingis off to Dallas, opening up a boatload of cap space that could allow them to potentially sign two max free agents this summer.

Irving had 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists before a crowd eager to start the free agent wooing five months early.

It could certainly happen if this season doesn't end on an ideal note for Boston, and it's a possibility that is very much on the radar of NY fans.

Gordon Hayward had 14 points off the bench.

Acting AG says Mueller investigation "close to being completed"
Capitol for closed meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 21, 2017.in Washington , D.C. Stone was charged with false statements, obstruction, and witness tampering.

Damyean Dotson scored 22 points and Kevin Knox had 21 for the hapless Knicks, who lost their 12th straight. "Obviously what's going on in terms of that noise and commentary is just a bunch of nonsense right now".

If we want to understand a guy as complex as Irving, we need the full picture, not just bits and pieces. Not that they had a player as good as Porzingis during those dark years, but their cap-clearing moves were mostly inconsequential salary swaps involving the likes of Jared Jeffries and Tracy McGrady.

And Irving, as he usually does, said a lot.

Fizdale, on the chants for Irving: "You know, I am on a whole other planet when it comes to that stuff".

"I appreciate the fans, I appreciate the support, but it's really about our team now and what we want to accomplish this season - and that's a championship, so my focus is stuck on that".

After the match it was put to him whether that might be his last game in a Chelsea shirt and Hudson-Odoi was careful in his response.

Knicks executives say they won't feel pressured to throw their money at someone in July.
