The Nets are having ongoing conversations with Kevin Durant about the future of the franchise, though rival teams have been told by Brooklyn that the star forward is not available in trade talks.
Durant issued a trade request over the summer and not long after, he rescinded his request. Things were going great for Durant on the court this season before he injured his knee, as he’s making a career-high 55.9% of his shots from the field while averaging 29.7 points per game.
Multiple clubs have reached out to the Nets about Durant following their Kyrie Irving trade. Brooklyn received Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney Smith, a first-rounder, and multiple second-rounder in the deal for Irving (which also netted Dallas Markieff Morris.
Brooklyn remains the subject of trade rumors after the Irving deal, as another move ahead of Thursday’s deadline seems quite possible.
