Irving asked his hope for the future.

But, his former team-mate James could become a free agent and rumours have swirled that Boston and James may have mutual interest.

"I'm just excited to see what that looks like, really getting that experience with [Gordon Hayward] and seeing what other pieces we have going forward", the 26-year-old guard told Robb.

Kyrie Irving says that he is not considering a contract extension with the Boston Celtics because it does not make financial sense. "You know, just going into this year with the mindset of trying to win a championship".

Irving acknowledged that he has that authenticity with the Celtics.

Throughout the regular season, much was made about where James will go next due to a player option in his contract and speculation has only increased following the Warriors' sweep of the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals last week.

But we can't forget that we're now in the NBA's silly season, and things tend to get blown out of proportion this time of the year.

Irving did note that he hasn't had any conversations with Boston's front office about James and said he appreciates the transparency of team brass as they map out their future vision. He is notoriously ambiguous and non-committal when talking with reporters, whether they're asking about his reasons for wanting out of Cleveland or his flat earth theories. If Ainge was willing to ship off Isaiah Thomas for Kyrie Irving, who played in the playoffs only a day after his sister passed away in a auto accident, why wouldn't he be willing to trade Hayward away if the right offer came through?

A lot of the news coming out of Boston hasn't been the best. Is he worth a max deal that will pay him $200 million over five seasons?

Kyrie Irving isn't interested in signing an extension with the Boston Celtics this summer, but that's not exactly news. That, or he and Ainge can chat about it during their next trip to Chipotle.

It's safe to assume the Celtics want Kyrie Irving in Boston for the long haul, but it might be some time before pen is put to paper to ensure that happens. Not yet. Chances are we won't know what Irving's future holds until next summer, and that's the way he wants it.
