Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving is in the final year of his contract. He said in September he would re-sign with the team.

On Friday, Irving said he would not play a long time in the league. Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki has been in the league for 21-years.

Atlanta Hawks forward Vince Carter is also in his 21st season in the association.

The 26-year-old believes he will not be in the league as long as those two men.

“No, no,” he said, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “Once I’m done with this, hopefully in my early-to-mid 30s, I’m done with this.”

Irving will be 27-years-old in March. He is expected to opt out of his contract in the summer time.

Once he opts out of his current deal, he will be eligible to sign a five-year, $188 million deal. If he plays through the end of this five-year deal, it would be 32.

The former No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft has played in 458 games. His 459th career game is tonight as the Celtics are on the road against the Atlanta Hawks.

He is averaging 26.6 points per game with five rebounds, seven assists, 2.4 steals, and 0.8 blocks.
