The Brooklyn Nets have already traded Kyrie Irving. Could Kevin Durant be next?
Not before Thursday’s trade deadline, or at least that’s what Brooklyn has reportedly been telling other organizations. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says multiple teams have contacted the Nets about their star forward, who is currently sidelined with a sprained MCL.
Should the Nets change their minds before Thursday afternoon, keep an eye on the Phoenix Suns as a possible destination for Durant, according to Woj.
“Durant had interest in a deal to the Suns over the summer, but so far the Nets haven’t shown a willingness to move him to Phoenix or anywhere else, sources tell ESPN,” Wojnarowski tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “There have been a number of teams reaching out to Brooklyn on Durant.”
Even after dealing Irving to the Dallas Mavericks, the Nets reportedly still intend to try and make a fun in the Eastern Conference playoffs this spring.
As a result, they likely will resist trading Durant at all costs, unless the situation becomes untenable in the next 48 hours.
