Kevin Durant trade discussions over, will remain with Nets

Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks announced Tuesday that any trade discussions about Kevin Durant are over, adding the two parties are “focusing on basketball” and working “to bring a championship to Brooklyn” as reported by ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fantasy Impact

Durant and his manager, Rich Kleiman, reportedly met with a Nets collective of Marks, head coach Steve Nash, and owners Joe and Clara Wu Sai Los Angeles on Monday. The two groups “agreed to move forward with [their] partnership…with one collective goal in mind.” That goal being to “build a lasting franchise to bring a championship to Brooklyn.” Durant remains under contract in Brooklyn for four more seasons under the four-year, $198 million extension he signed in 2021. Durant, who averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in 55 games last season, appears to have accepted his fate and is committed to Brooklyn for the foreseeable future. He will head into his 15th NBA as a first-round talent, likely a top-5 selection, in most fantasy formats.

Kevin Durant reiterates trade request to Nets front office

Kevin Durant has reportedly reiterated his trade request to Brooklyn's owner Joe Tsai, making it clear that Tsai needs to "choose between Durant or the pairing of general manager Sean Marks and coach Steve Nash."

Fantasy Impact

This report comes after weeks of silence regarding a potential KD trade out of Brooklyn, and many thought the former MVP would have to spend another season with the Nets. However, it is clear that Durant wants out and he may be putting more pressure on the organization to get a deal done before the season starts. According to Shams Charania, the Celtics, Heat and Raptors remain interested in a trade for the 33-year-old superstar.

Kevin Durant reportedly requests trade from Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, and Nets GM Sean Marks is working with Durant on finding a trade partner, according to reports from Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fantasy Impact

There were rumors over the last several weeks that Durant's relationship with the Nets had become strained, but many thought that Kyrie Irving opting into his contract and reportedly staying in Brooklyn for at least the 2022-2023 season was a step in the right direction. However, Durant apparently still wants out. Durant will turn 34 before next season but is still one of the most prolific scorers in the league. His 37.2 minutes per game in 2021 were his most since he averaged 38.5 in 2013 as a 25-year-old.

Kevin Durant being aggressively pursued by the Heat

According to Brad Sullivan of Heat Nation, Nets F Kevin Durant is being aggressively pursued by the Heat.

Fantasy Impact

With rumors of Kyrie Irving leaving town and Durant having yet to talk to Brooklyn's front office, all signs point to a potential trade of the superstar. In recent days, ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski has speculated on the availability and that the Nets are "preparing" to play 2022 without the service of both Durant and Irving. Among several teams interested in the superstar are the Heat, who are rumored to be the front runners for Durant. The return for the veteran forward would be immense and would likely involve one of if not both of Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro.
