“Both sides are negotiating like jerks”

It’s been over a month since Kevin Durant asked the Brooklyn Nets to trade him. Little progress has been made since then. As it stands, teams are finding it difficult to deal with the nets as they aim for a high return package.

Kevin Durant made the trade request directly to Nets owner Joe Tsai today, sources tell ESPN.

There have been reports of the networks making potential deals with other teams. However, they also proved that their fussiness has led to a drought in finding a new team for Durant. It’s also worth noting that the player the nets are trying to deliver was constantly upset when the going got tough.

With that, ESPN’s Nick Wright pointed out why it’s almost impossible for Durant to be traded now. He cited teams like the New Orleans Pelicans and the Boston Celtics as the only logical and possible trading partners. According to recent reports, KD has also been interested in reuniting with former Philadelphia 76ers teammate James Harden.

Kevin Durant is open to the possibility of reuniting with James Harden at the Sixers, per @IanBegley A potential three-headed monster made up of Durant, Embiid and Harden is a scary thought offensively 👀

Wright also dismissed the idea that the 76s could be a trade target for the 12-time All-Star.

“Philly doesn’t have any draft picks. New Orleans and Boston – there are only 2 teams in the league that have the assets to trade for Kevin Durant and once trading those assets would still be a contender.” – @getnickwright explains why KD is an impossible trade for the 76’s:

“Both sides are negotiating like idiots,” Wright said. “Sean Marks says, ‘My opening salvo is (Jayson) Tatum and (Jaylen) Brown.’ This results in me not calling you for a month. It’s like, “OK, you’re being frivolous. Cut it out.” The Celtics’ response was, “I guess we’ll give you Jaylen Brown and maybe we’ll throw in Payton Pritchard and a pick.” Well, that’s not enough either.

“The Philly thing would be fun. They would be overwhelming favorites. But I don’t think they can make the deal.”


Kevin Durant’s disloyalty has made it difficult for teams to pursue him

Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the NBA right now. He is second to none and has proven he is always great.

Despite his status in court, his extrajudicial agendas have made him difficult to deal with. Of course he wants to win. But it looks like Durant always chooses the easier way.

In 2016, he and the Golden State Warriors shook the entire NBA when he teamed up with a 73-win team. Some have said his move ultimately ruined the league by eliminating all types of competition so he could enjoy the ride with fellow All-Stars.

Now when he called for a trade, he wanted to join the Miami Heat. It was reported that he was looking to join the best team in the Eastern Conference last season with Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry. It was not well received by the fans and it was illogical for the Nets to comply with his request.

At the moment, there appears to be a standoff between the Nets and Durant. With the way the Nets are picky and with KD’s almost impossible requests, no one knows if he’ll be traded anytime soon.
