Kyrie Irving marches to the beat of his own drum, and this summer will be no different. On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Kyrie and his career-long agent, Jeff Wechsler, have parted ways. Wechsler has been Irving’s agent since he declared for the draft after his one season at Duke, helping him land as the number 1 pick in the draft in 2011.
So what’s next for the 27-year-old guard?
Well, it seems as though Kyrie will be signing with Roc Nation, per Woj (obviously). Signing with Roc Nation could give us an insight into what Kyrie plans to do next.
Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald is reporting that Kyrie Irving is “preparing” to sign with the Brooklyn Nets. https://t.co/OP2yQtFGld

Roc Nation was founded by Jay-Z, who in order to be allowed to have this company had to sell his stakes in the Brooklyn Nets. That’s right, the same Brooklyn Nets that are rumored to be the favorite to sign Kyrie. Another interesting thing to keep in mind is that Roc Nation also represents Kevin Durant, whom Kyrie is rumored to want to team up with.
While KD’s status still isn’t clear in terms of his offseason plans following his Achilles injury, it is not out of the realm of possibilities for a team like the Nets to sign him and wait a year until he’s back.
