He's signed to a professional tryout, which means he can't appear in more than a specific number of games. It does mean that he can continue to practice with the team indefinitely.
This is the correct answer. Combined with the prior answer that both Taylor and Brust have been stellar in the early going's this year.
This idea that Irving is being outplayed just is not true. They are just playing the hot hand right now, if the other two start to falter you will see Irving get more games. He has been good in the ones he has played thus far.
