We just saw BI at practice rocking Kyrie’s sneakers. He informed us he’s a sneaker free agent now and he’s looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Steve Nash said the Nets don’t plan to move practice out of their Brooklyn facility, to say…Long Island or New Jersey, in order to get Irving able to join them. “This is our home, this is where we’re going to practice.” – 2:05 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Steve Nash says there is no change to Kyrie Irving’s status. He is not at practice in BKN today. NYC requires Knicks/Nets to be vaccinated to participate in games/practices within city limits. – 1:18 PM

Adrian Wojnarowski: There had been previous optimism Irving would get vaccinated and fulfill local mandates, but that hope is waning and Irving’s continued resistance to vaccination has Nets preparing for possibility they’ll be without him for home practices and games for foreseeable future. -via Twitter @wojespn / October 5, 2021
Ohm Youngmisuk: Steve Nash says Kyrie Irving is not with the Nets today at practice in Brooklyn. He says there “is no further update” on Irving’s status to practice or play in New York under the city’s COVID protocols. -via Twitter @NotoriousOHM / October 5, 2021
Shams Charania: Kyrie Irving did not attend Nets practice today, sources tell me and @Alex Schiffer. Irving is currently ineligible for home games and practices because of NYC’s vaccination requirement. -via Twitter @ShamsCharania / October 5, 2021
