The Brooklyn Nets are still exploring the market and keep their options open regarding a Kevin Durant trade in the offseason.
The Nets are in no rush to find a deal for the All-Star forward, as they know they have plenty of time to make the best decision.
“The market is still taking shape, and I think it’s incumbent on some of the other teams to be creative and start bringing to Brooklyn ideas, going out and seeing if they can get players, picks that would put the kind of package it would take to get Kevin Durant.
Brooklyn’s got time on its side. They have a lot of time left in the offseason and they have a player in KD who has four years left on his contract. They don’t have to rush into a deal,” Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN said on SportsCenter.
Several teams have emerged as candidates to land the two-time NBA champion. The Nets, though, will ask for a massive package in return (All-Star players, first-round picks) to agree to a deal.
For his part, Kevin Durant, who has four years and $194.2M left on his contract, wants to join a team with multiple All-Star players.
