NBA News: Kevin Durant demands trade from Brooklyn Nets

According to media reports, superstar Kevin Durant of the Brookyn Nets has demanded a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. In the course of this, teams have already become public, which the then most sought-after player on the market would like to join. Kyrie Irving could now be traded after all.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski (ESPN) informed the Nets on Thursday about the decision and submitted the trade request directly to owner Joe Tsai. Woj adds that Nets GM Sean Marks is working with KD and its business manager Rich Kleiman to find a suitable trade.

According to the expert, there hasn’t been any contact between the franchise and the two players since Monday, when co-star Kyrie Irving decided to take his player option. As a result, there was already a feeling that Durant might actually ask for a trade. Three days later the time had actually come.

Durant only signed a new four-year contract worth 194 million last August, which runs until 2026. According to Wojnarowski, Durant has a wish list for where he wants to play in the future. The Suns and the Heat are on it, confirmed by Brian Windhorst (ESPN). Brooklyn, however, wants seasoned players in return, having given almost all of their own draft picks to the Houston Rockets in the James Harden trade.

In the case of a trade with Phoenix or Miami, the Nets Stand will now insist on Devin Booker or Bam Adebayo respectively. Both are currently playing with a “Designated Rookie Extension”, however, according to the CBA it is not allowed to trade for two such players at the same time. The Nets already have such a player in their roster in Ben Simmons, so he would need to be involved in such a deal. According to Windhorst, Phoenix is ​​Durant’s preferred destination.

The Nets, however, want to give that little consideration and find the deal that helps them the most. Due to the long term, there are numerous teams who want to give up a lot of assets for such an exceptional player. According to Woj, more than half of all NBA teams have already put out feelers to Durant.
