“We’ve built trust and consistency,” Shetellia told Sports Illustrated in 2022. “I don’t want Kyrie to come back two years from now saying ‘I signed this really bad deal and it didn’t make sense,’ because he didn’t understand it, or it was just about a money grab. That’s something that we’re really being intentional about, especially in the things that we look to align ourselves with.”
In February 2023, Kyrie was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Dallas Mavericks.
Now, it’s said that Kyrie will remain with the Dallas Mavericks.
The Guardian reports the NBA player has agreed to a three-year contract, valued at $126 million, which includes a player option for the third season.

While Kyrie Irving had planned earlier in the day to meet with several teams about free agency, Dallas' 3-year, $126 million offer changed those plans. "We planned to take the meetings but decided that Dallas would be our place," his agent Shetellia Riley Irving told @CBSSports.
