Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is planning on re-signing with the NBA franchise.

Irving's five-year, $94million contract he signed with Cleveland Cavaliers in 2015 expires at the end of 2019-20, but he has an option next year and could become a free agent following that.

However, Irving – who was acquired by the Celtics in 2017 – intends to remain in Boston beyond the upcoming campaign.

"I've shared it with some of my team-mates as well as the organisation as well as everyone else in Boston," Irving said at an event at TD Garden on Thursday.

"If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here next year."

The 26-year-old point guard averaged 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games for the Celtics last season.
