Kyrie Irving says he intends to remain a member of the Boston Celtics beyond this season.

“I’ve shared it with some of my teammates as well as the organization as well as everyone else in Boston. If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here next year,” Irving said to rousing applause at an event for season-ticket holders at TD Garden on Thursday night.

Irving, 26, is entering the final year of the five-year, $94 million contract he signed with Cleveland before the 2015-16 season. He has a player option for the 2019-20 season and can become an unrestricted free agent after that.
