I will say this about Kyrie he doesn’t seem motivated by money, and even if he is, he shouldn’t be hurting for cash. He has made over $160 million in NBA salaries, and that isn’t counting the endorsement money he has made during his 10-year career. With that being said to give up $186 million over a shot that has proven to be 99% safe is a pretty ballsy move. According to Shams, while the Nets will welcome him back if he ever does come back, they don’t want to be on the hook long term.They already have Kevin Durant locked up, which was their main priority.Here is what Shams had to say via Alec Sturm and The Glue Guys.“He was willing to sacrifice, at the end of the day, 16 million dollars in salary this upcoming year and 186 million dollars, as far as an extension, that he will not be offered now.”
