Kevin Durant still remains a Brooklyn Nets player despite his very strained relations with the front office and a request to be traded.
So far, however, the Nets have not received any proposals deemed attractive, although there have been inquiries from several NBA franchises, as is normal for a player of this caliber. So far, however, no negotiations have gotten into the thick of things; in fact, most of the talks have been nipped in the bud.
Shams Charania of The Athletic took stock of trade options that have arisen so far without materializing.
The latest team to take an interest in KD was. Philadelphia which would also have some interesting players to offer (Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris above all) but does not have the package of picks that Brooklyn is interested in, as all of those in the first round are locked in until 2029.
Between late June and early July, both the Milwaukee Bucks both the Denver Nuggets knocked on the Nets’ door to see what the demands were without then moving forward. Same modus operandi as the New Orleans Pelicans who stopped short of a request to include Brandon Ingram in the trade. Last month, however, the Atlanta Hawks made an offer that included John Collins, De’Andre Hunter and a number of picks but the proposal was rejected by Brooklyn.
To these reports must be added those circulating in recent weeks about the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors. So far, however, none of the teams that have knocked on the Nets’ door have come close to nabbing Durant and the $198 million in his contract.
