Brooklyn Nets’ owner, Joe Tsai, addressed Kevin Durant’s ultimatum, showing his support to Steve Nash and Sean Marks.
On Monday, Tsai met with Durant, with the latter giving him an ultimatum that he should either trade him or fire head coach Steve Nash and GM Sean Marks.
“Our front office and coaching staff have my support. We will make decisions in the best interest of the Brooklyn Nets,” Tsai tweeted.

It is unlikely for the Nets’ owner to keep Durant in the team and part ways with Steve Nash and Sean Marks, therefore we should expect interested teams to re-engage in talks with Brooklyn.
Tsai has no willingness to lower the trade price for Kevin Durant, while three teams (Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors) remain strong candidates to land him.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP still has four years and $194.2M left on his current contract.
