Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic Use Social Media to Recruit Kevin Durant to ‘Blazers

Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic are using social media to recruit Brooklyn Nets’ star Kevin Durant to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Nurkic tweeted out a photoshopped picture of Durant in a Trail Blazers uniform on Saturday afternoon.

The Nets have found themselves in a precarious situation as 7x all-star Kyrie Irving has reportedly made it known that he may not resign with the team.

If Irving leaves the Nets, many speculate Durant would request a trade.

The ‘Blazers recently acquired forward Jerami Grant; who averaged 19.2 points on 43%/36%/84% shooting splits last season.

Any trade for Durant would almost certainly require a bevy of first-round draft picks, as well as young players and salary filler.

The ‘Blazers could offer a package centered around recently-drafted #7 overall pick Shaedon Sharpe – but it’s not yet known whether Brooklyn would be interested in entertaining such an offer.

Either way, it seems possible Durant may be on the move before the 2022-23 NBA season.
