Odds Say Kyrie Irving’s Future This Season Is In Doubt

  • Kyrie Irving has +325 odds to play a game this season and +550 odds to be traded.
  • The Brooklyn Nets are favored to keep Irving after the trade deadline with -1000 odds.

NEW YORK – The drama surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets continues as Irving has yet to play a game this season due to not receiving the COVID-19 vaccine as well as the vaccine mandate in New York.

New York currently requires anyone in the state to be fully vaccinated before entering a sports arena or any indoor event. With that said, online betting sites have different odds surrounding Kyrie Irving’s status this season.

Will Irving Make An Appearance This Season?

  • Yes +325
  • No -550

Irving’s status this season is in jeopardy as NBA odds are not likely for him to play this season due to not being vaccinated against COVID-19. The Brooklyn Nets have also come to terms with this as they have announced that Irving will not practice or play with the team this season unless he decides to get vaccinated.

With that said, Irving is known to stick to his gut and is persistent with the things he says and decisions he makes meaning that it is a longshot for him to get vaccinated.

“I am going to just continue to stay in shape, be ready to play, be ready to rock out with my teammates, and just be part of this whole thing. This is not a political thing; this is not about the NBA, not about any organization. This is about my life and what I am choosing to do,” Irving said to ESPN.

Where Will Kyrie Irving Play After The 2022 NBA Trade Deadline?

  • Brooklyn Nets -1000

  • Dallas Mavericks +1500
  • LA Clippers +1500

Aside from the belief that Irving will not play this season, there are other thoughts that Irving has a chance to play if he is traded. It is worth noting that the Nets are completely open to trading Irving if the right offer presents itself.

As for potential trade destinations for Irving, it must be kept in mind that teams that trade for him must not be in states that have vaccine mandates. Behind the Brooklyn Nets are the Philadelphia 76ers who would be great trade partners as a deal centered around Ben Simmons and Irving could be in play.

The 76ers are requiring all team players and officials to either be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative test. Being that Philly is actively looking to unload a disgruntled Ben Simmons, a move could be made before the deadline.

Looking at the Minnesota Timberwolves, although they have odds under +1000, money should not be wagered here as Timberwolves star center, Karl-Anthony Towns, has been drastically affected by COVID-19 having lost numerous family members including his mother. That said, Minnesota is sure to do right by their star leader and not bring Irving’s energy to the team.

As for the remaining teams on the odds board, they could also be a full go to trade for Irving as the states they are in do not have vaccine mandates.
