Report: Kyrie Irving Trade Offers No Promise Of Extension From Mavericks; Debut Date Set

The Dallas Mavericks made their big move acquiring Kyrie Irving, but they're doing it without a safety net. They've made no promises about any new contract, according to several reports.

Extension talks are expected to be put off until this summer, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon. Irving would be eligible for a 2-year extension now, in-season, or up to a 4-year deal in the summer. And, as MacMahon notes, the Mavericks will have nearly max cap space room this summer if they decide to move on from Kyrie. 

NBA and Mavs Insider Marc Stein says it was the right thing to do for the Mavs to put off any contract talks:

Dallas was smart to establish from the jump that it won't entertain in-season or offseason extension talks until it sees how things go, but it's incumbent on the Mavericks to start hashing out a top-shelf backup plan given Irving's recent history. 

Reports have Irving apparently making his debut for the Mavs on Wednesday night in Los Angeles against the Clippers. 

He's undergoing his physical in Dallas today.
