Sources: Kyrie Irving to return to Mavericks on 3-year deal

Kyrie Irving has agreed to a three-year, $126 million deal to return to the Dallas Mavericks, sources told ESPN's Tim MacMahon on Friday.

Irving, 31, an eight-time All-Star, is widely considered to be one of the most skilled guards to ever play the game. He has career averages of 23.4 points and 5.7 assists, including 27.1 points and 5.5 assists per game last season for the Brooklyn Nets and Mavericks.

However, Irving's career has also featured acrimonious exits from multiple franchises.

He requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers a year after playing a starring role in the 2016 championship run.
