Chris Broussard says the Nets should listen to offers for Kyrie Irving

Longtime journalist Chris Broussard hopped on First Things First on Thursday to talk about the Brooklyn Nets and guard Kyrie Irving, who has recently become the subject of trade speculation – at least among Fox Sports commentators.

Broussard said that while the Nets are not actively ‘shopping’ Irving, they should listen to offers for the 29-year-old guard:

“Sure, I’ll listen. They’re not shopping him as Nick (Wright) said, but I’d listen — Ben Simmons? Damian Lillard? Bradley Beal? Those are worth considering … listening to.”

“As great as Kyrie Irving is, if the Nets aren’t willing to listen & consider trades for Kyrie then they aren’t doing their job. Kyrie’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer. But he’s not Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kevin Durant or Steph Curry. He’s not untouchable.” — @Chris_Broussard

A player of Irving’s caliber is going to get a heap of offers across the league. And yes, his journey so far with the Nets has not been the best. However, would the team want to start all over with another All-Star to play alongside James Harden and Kevin Durant? Especially after all the work the New Jersey native has done building the culture here in Brooklyn?
