As of late this week, teams interested in pursuing Kyrie Irving remained under the impression that the Nets were the odds-on favorite to land the point guard, per sources. But no team interested in Irving, including the Knicks and Lakers, had been led to believe that they are out of the running to sign him, those sources say.

If Irving ends up signing in Brooklyn, it may have an interesting ripple effect on the roster, particularly D’Angelo Russell.

If Irving signs with the Nets, SNY sources familiar with the matter say it is highly unlikely that Russell remains with the Nets. Members of the Nets organization have communicated that idea in recent days, per sources.

Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Korver labored over a decision between the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, but his history and relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer played a significant role in his ultimate choice, league sources said.

The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta and was an All-Star there in 2015.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Bucks will incur a $1.6 million cap hit on Korver’s deal. The Phoenix Suns, who waived Korver earlier this month, will receive a $559,000 set-off on the $3.4 million they owe him.
