Kyrie Irving, agent Jeff Wechsler reportedly part ways

Report Celtics don’t want to keep all of their first-round picks	
				Bob Donnan- USA TODAY Sports

Irving parted ways with longtime agent Jeff Wechsler on Wednesday, clearing the way for him to ultimately work with Jay-Z's Roc Nation prior to the start of National Basketball Association free agency on June 30, sources said.

As expected, Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving has declined the player option on his contract and will enter unrestricted free agency, as relayed by Shams Charania of Stadium. Mike Cherry, a reporter in Manchester, NH, took to Twitter to show a local sporting goods store that was selling Irving's jersey's and t-shirts for 50 percent off. The decision to switch over to Roc Nation can also be an indication of Irving signing with the Brooklyn Nets after free agency begins on June 30th. That would be the Jay-Z that used to be a part-owner of the Brooklyn Nets.

If Kyrie Irving decides to remain with the Boston Celtics next season, it will be by way of a new contract. "That concept was placed in some measure of doubt when Kevin Durant - the most prominent of the potential 2019 free agents - suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night". Wechsler helped Irving navigate his way out of Cleveland and into a trade to the Celtics in 2017.

But the Celtics have been just as successful, perhaps more, in the games Irving has missed.

Irving had a stellar season for the Celtics on the floor, leading the team with 23.8 points per game while adding a career-high 6.9 assists and five rebounds per contest, earning him a spot on the All-NBA Second Team.

Now, they may very well get that chance.
