Kyrie Irving is set to get a major payday in summer 2014 as the Cleveland Cavaliers are set to offer the star point guard a five-year, $80 million max extension contract, according to the Morning Journal.

Irving is eligible for an extension since he will be finishing the third year of his rookie contract. Sources say the Cavs will give Irving "tens of millions" to stay with the franchise and commit to them for the long-term.

Irving was the No. 1 overall pick of the Cavaliers back in the 2011 NBA Draft. So far, he has been one of the league's bright, young and growing stars.

The major question will be Irving would want to stay with the Cavs? Reports earlier came out that he never wanted to play with the Cavs, but Irving refuted those rumors in a series of tweets.

I wouldn't be surprised if Irving pulls a Paul George and ends up signing the $80 million extension before the Oct. 31 deadline. Guys like John Wall have done so in the past as well.

Irving, a 2014 NBA All-Star, has averaged 21.1 points and 6.2 assists per game this season.
