On Friday word came down that Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving had requested a trade out of town, adding more drama to an already tenuous stay in the Borough of Churches.

Irving, who is set to be a free agent at the end of the season, wants to get traded before the Thursday trade deadline. The Nets are 31-20, and are in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

According to reports, Irving is upset that the Nets have not committed to him on a long term deal.

The Nets and Irving’s agent, Shetellia Riley-Irving, had discussed an extension recently, but Brooklyn remained reluctant to rush into a long-term commitment without further evidence that Irving could stay reliable, perform at a high level and remain controversy-free,” (ESPN).
