As I blogged about just earlier today, shit is hitting the fan right now in the NBA Free Agency world and some of the latest news that was dropped has serious implications for what I wrote about earlier. But, let’s start with Mr. Flat World: Kyrie Irving will be signing with the Brooklyn Nets as of tomorrow.

Once Kyrie signs with the Nets as expected via Woj above, the Nets will either “Sign and Trade” him (if they can find a deal that works for everyone) or be forced to renounce his rights, leaving him to sign with the team of his choice. Here’s what Woj tweeted involving D-Lo, after the Kyrie news he broke right before:

With all of the rumors swirling on Russell and Wiggins today, my erection was at peak-stiffness after this was tweeted. Unfortunately, the positive streak couldn’t go any longer (4 hours+ can get dangerous anyway) and Woj reminded us that the Timberwolves aren’t the only team that’s interested in the former #2 pick.

If the Wolves can find a way to get this sign and trade done before free agency hits tomorrow then they won’t have to worry about the Lakers… A S&T might make a bit more sense for the Wolves too, in landing D-Lo, because it might give them the opportunity to give some salary back to Brooklyn in the deal, instead of having to clear all of the cap space needed, to make the same signing once he hits unrestricted free agency.

Stay close over the next 12-24 hours fam.. it’s going to be a wild ride…
