While Irving can not officially sign the contract until July 10th, team owner Dan Gilbert, who flew to New Jersey, announced on Twitter that he shook hands with Irving as an agreement that Irving intends to sign the deal.
The agreement with Irving happened just seven days after the franchise drafted Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
