At the Celtics' Fan Fest event Thursday night, Kyrie Irving assured the crowd that he plans on re-signing this offseason when he can becomes a free agent.

"If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here," Irving told a crowd to raucous applause in TD Garden.

Last week, in an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols the five-time All-Star said, "Even if I ever try to think about that thought of going elsewhere, it would be like, 'What are you thinking?' We're pretty f------ good here."

Additionally, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that Irving has made a verbal commitment to Boston ownership that he plans to stay long-term.

Irving addressed the subject further in speaking with reporters Friday morning. 

"I just have every intent to sign back, I just wanted to clear it up," Irving said. He added that one day he hopes his name will be part of Celtics history.

In his one season with the Celtics, Irving averaged 24.4 points and 5.1 assists in 60 games. A lingering knee issue forced him to shut his season down early and miss the postseason. The 26-year-old from Duke will be entering his eighth NBA season this year.
