Kevin Durant Meets With Nets’ Owner; Still Wants to be Traded, Per Report

Kevin Durant Meets With Nets Owner

Brooklyn Nets’ superstar Kevin Durant met with team owner Joe Tsai and said he still wants to be traded, per a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.

That is, unless Tsai fires head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks.

Durant, 33, has four years left on his contract; which means the Nets don’t have to rush into a deal.

The Boston Celtics have been the odds-on favorite to acquire Durant since reports leaked suggesting the Celtics offered all-star Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, and a first-round pick.

The Celtics remain the betting favorite; but the Warriors could build an impressive trade package if they’re interested in a reunion with Durant.

Brooklyn is going to have to make some sort of a decision soon with training camp just around the corner.

Durant’s absence, and the $44 million+ cap hit it carries, would certainly be a glaring problem for a team trying to compete for a championship.
