07:15 AM ET 08.12 | With John Wall locking up the "80 ball," a max contract worth about $80 million, Kyrie Irving might be next. The Cavaliers can offer Irving a contract extension next summer, and provided he remains relatively healthy this season, they intend on making him a max offer. Now the market has been set by Wall, who was drafted No. 1 overall the year before Irving. Wall last month became the fifth point guard to sign a max contract. ... But he wasn't interested in discussing his future Saturday at his basketball skills camp at Independence High School. Asked directly if he would sign the full five-year extension with the Cavs next summer, Irving said, "I'm not really worried about that right now. Right now I'm focusing on the year ahead, my third year, then I'll worry about that in the summertime."

No wonder the Wiz rushed to lock up Wall.

KI should leave Cavs if he wants to taste real success. LA or Dallas may be great destinations.

Ha ha ha ha. As if anyone thought there was a chance of him staying in Cleveland.

Its a guarantee he will re-up, no young star has ever not done soThe bigger problem for the caves is they have too many young guys that will be coming up for contracts who will want to be paid and they can't pay everyone.

Like the Thunder, they had to decide between Harden and Ibaka. And chose the wrong one.

Not a problem. Dan Gilbert has so much money that he makes Lakers ownership look like welfare recipients.

Welfare recipients with 16 more titles than the Cleveland Cava-liars...

He's not going anywhere. He's restricted next summer so the Cavs can match and keep.

So you're saying he stays but not willingly? Hmmm...
