Kyrie Irving feels very excited about LeBron James’ return to Cleveland, and so do pay per head sportsbooks.
When speaking on Saturday at his basketball camp at Independence (Ohio) High School, the fourth-year point guard said that he has a “great feeling” about next season.
“It’s an exciting time, I can tell you that,” Irving said, according to Fox Sports Ohio.
“Everything is happening.”
Price per head services saw that on July 11, James announced that after the four seasons he spent with the Miami Heat, he would return to the Cavaliers.
“I was excited,” Irving said. “You have to empathize with the guy. I think we all felt his emotions with his essay (on SI.com). … I found out like everyone else found out.”
Irving finalized a $90 million, five-year extension with Cleveland one day before James’ announcement, and pay per head sportsbooks can see that the player is pretty committed to the team.
“I’m glad we got it done,” Irving said. “A couple days later, a guy decided to come back to Cleveland. The rest is history. Now, we’ll let (general manager) David Griffin do his thing. …
“We wanted to make it as easy as possible,” Irving added. “I wanted to show my commitment to them and they wanted to show their commitment to me. That’s what it was really about. They wanted me to be a part of their future, and I wanted to be a part of their future. It was a huge monkey off my back, with all the speculation and all the B.S. I was hearing. I’m just happy I got it out of the way.”
Pay per head sportsbooks also learned that Cleveland added Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick, along with veterans James Jones and Mike Miller this offseason in free agency, and the team is also reportedly in trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves for All-Star forward Kevin Love.

“This whole free-agent period has been a whirlwind, so many rumors, so many guys with inside sources,” Irving said.
“Until it happens and I get a call from our GM … other than that, I haven’t considered it.”
