Kyrie Irving addressed his future in Boston. Kind of.

When asked if he still plans to re-sign with the Celtics, he replied “Ask me July 1.’’

Celtics guard Kyrie Irving spoke to the media Friday morning for the first time since recent reports emerged from Yahoo! Sports and Bleacher Report that he may have interest in becoming a Los Angeles Laker.

When asked if he still plans to re-sign with the Celtics, he replied “Ask me July 1.’’

He later said that the plan is to remain with the Celtics.

“At the end of the day I spent the last eight years trying to do what everybody else wanted me to do in terms of making my decisions and trying to validate through the media, through other personnel, managers, anybody in this business,’’ Irving said.

“What excited me a lot about the beginning of the season was the opportunity to come into this season really just doing what we planned on doing, set a goal and go after it and then see what happens at the end of the season. That was the plan before and that’s still the plan now.’’
