NBA: A shattering decision by Kevin Durant?
More than a month ago, Kevin Durant asked for his Brooklyn Nets trade. The winger had even recently gone to clash with his management by giving him an ultimatum. But the Nets have yet to reach an agreement with anyone. If the hypothesis of a non-departure is emerging from day to day, KD would not give up and would even be ready to make a strong decision to force his departure.
After only three short seasons at New York, Kevin Durant could already leave. This is the flagship news of this summer in NBA. K.D. would have asked for his departure from net. Besides, the relationship between the franchise and the player is currently not good at all. Recently, in a meeting with Joe Tsaithe owner of brooklynthe former MVP reiterated his request for a trade and even gave him a huge ultimatum: it’s either him or Steve Nash and Sean Marks. Clearly, to stay, the winger would have claimed the head of the coach and the general manager of his franchise. According Shams Charania of The Athletic, Kevin Durant would have no confidence in them and would not appreciate the direction the franchise is currently taking. Nevertheless, Joe Tsai does not seem to want to support his player.

Suitors but still disagree
After these latest events, the future of Kevin Durant on the side of Brooklyn Nets seemed to darken a little more. However, at present, the multiple All-Star has still not found a way out. Still, there would be no shortage of suitors. In effect, Phoenix, Miami, Toronto and lately Boston have already tried their luck to attract During. But no agreement was reached with the net. It must be said that such a player involves a trade accordingly. The requirements of the New York franchise would therefore be very high, which would block any movement for the moment. And that’s quite logical. The net have in their team one of the very best players of the NBA, who still have several years left in their contract, and therefore want a trade that also suits them.
Kevin Durant sentenced to stay?
Consequently, the hypothesis of a non-departure of Brooklyn Nets begins to thicken Kevin Durant. Indeed, a departure before the start of the next season seems very complicated to achieve. Besides, Zach Lowejournalist for ESPNrecently said that Nets general manager Sean Marks has no intention of parting ways with KD this summer: “The Nets are probably waiting for Kevin Durant’s clan to realize all of this, and for KD to withdraw their trade request. Brooklyn has not given up on this scenario according to sources. The contenders are waiting for the Nets to finally capitulate and realize that a reunion is impossible. Durant could also speed up this process by speaking up publicly, asking for his trade and confirming that he won’t be coming back. Does such a statement mean that he is ready to stay on the bench all season, like Ben Simmons last year? I do not know. Sources confirm that the player isn’t ruling anything out, but he loves the sport far too much to make such a decision. It’s speculation. Time will tell us. »
Kevin Durant ready to skip training camp?
Given this latest information, Kevin Durant could perhaps end up making up his mind and stay at brooklyn. But it would be nothing. Indeed, according to Brian Windhorstjournalist for ESPNthe slim reaper would now be ready to stay home and wait for his trade. Skipping boot camp, During would therefore like to force the net to let him go: “A week ago, if someone had asked me, ‘Is Kevin Durant willing to forfeit training camp if he’s not traded?’ I probably would have said, “No, I can’t believe it.” But now I can. That’s where we’re headed. » Whether this strategy will bear fruit remains to be seen. During…
