Kevin Durant denies NBA retirement rumors

Kevin Durant took to Twitter and denied rumors about retiring from the NBA. The superstar of the Brooklyn Nets still has a few years left in his career and wants to fight for winning more championships.

The superstar forward has asked out of Brooklyn and has issued an ultimatum to Nets’ owner Joe Tsai, telling him that he should either trade him or fire head coach Steve Nash and GM Sean Marks.

Earlier today, Marc Stein of Substack revealed that an executive insisted that Durant ‘was more apt to retire than play again for the Brooklyn Nets’.

For his part, the two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP took to Twitter and responded to this claim, making it clear that it is false.

“I know most people will believe unnamed sources over me but if it’s anyone out there that’ll listen, I don’t plan on retiring anytime soon. Shit is comical at this point,” Kevin Durant tweeted.

It is unlikely that Kevin Durant will retire from the NBA soon, while it is also unlikely he will remain with the Brooklyn Nets.

If things don’t change in the coming weeks, it is likely the Nets will lower their trade demands and proceed to a deal for Kevin Durant. Otherwise, the superstar forward may skip the training camp and sit out the start of the season.

Kevin Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in 55 regular season games last season. He still has four years and $194.2M left on his current contract.
