Two-Minute Drill: Kyrie Rumors, Jimmy G To Possibly Stay

Jonathan Grant | August 20th, 2022

1st Down: Kyrie Irving’s status remains up in the air for now, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from continuing to churn. First up is a report that the Brooklyn Nets are only interested in trading the star if they can get players to help them win a title in the here and now. It’s being said that they are not looking to acquire draft picks as they are seen as too much of an ‘unsure’ thing, with an ‘established’ player being preferred. It’s also being rumored that because of LeBron James’ recent extension with the Lakers that they could now go after Kyrie. Though they only seem to have picks to offer, potentially going against the other report. We shall see in time.

2nd Down: Jimmy Garoppolo’s days as the go-to QB in San Francisco may be over, but according to the latest sources that doesn’t mean he will not be a 49ers player for the foreseeable future. The ownership has allegedly made it clear that they’d be happy to keep him on board as the backup, stating that he would support the coaching staff in whatever they decide on the matter. Trade speculation has been abundant this offseason, but so far Jimmy G has stayed put despite his rather large price tag.

3rd Down: Manchester United’s long chase for a midfielder looks to have finally been settled with the announcement that Casemiro has signed for the club from Real Madrid as of Friday. The team have not released details, but it’s being reported that the deal is worth upwards of $70 million for the transfer as the Red Devils look to shore up a team that have started the 2022-23 Premier League campaign in shambles. The Brazilian apparently has decided to leave Madrid, with whom he won five Champions League titles, to make more money in England.

4th Down: Texas has named it starting quarterback for the 2022 season, and it will be none other than Quinn Ewers taking charge. The QB only transferred into the school from Ohio State, and he is expected to do some big things for the Longhorns as they attempt to rebuild after a disappointing 5-7 season last year.
