The San Antonio Spurs are rumored to be interested in Kyrie Irving, so let’s see what the latest has been.

For the past month, the San Antonio Spurs were linked to Kyrie Irving, whose request to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers is no secret. It potentially ends his six years in Ohio, with a desire to go elsewhere to be an alpha male.

Earlier this month, we recapped what already was heard on the Irving-Spurs rumor front. Since then not much has changed, but there were a few new reports that came out about these two sides. What is there to know as August reaches its conclusion?

Nothing seems imminent for Irving’s NBA future, which goes for the Spurs and any other team that’s interested in his services. If anything, it doesn’t seem like a deal will happen until we get closer to the regular season, but that’s only speculation.

The end of the summer will be focused on Irving’s next destination, among other topics. It’s possible nothing exceeds this, however, as it’s the part of the offseason when there are few interesting stories that come to light.
