Kevin Durant meets with Nets’ ownership; remains with the team

Kevin Durant met with Brooklyn Nets’ owner Joe Tsai and decided to cancel his trade request and remain with the squad.

As the club officially informed, head coach Steve Nash, GM Sean Marks and Durant’s business partner Rich Kleiman were also present in the event.

Kevin Durant officially requested a trade on June 30, aiming to join a fellow NBA title contender. He even issued an ultimatum to Tsai that he should either trade him or fire Nash and Marks.

Brooklyn’s extremely high trade demands made it difficult for interested teams to strike a deal for the All-Star forward and two-time NBA champion.

Eventually, all sides agreed that it would be better for Durant to keep playing for the franchise, therefore they will move forward with their partnership.

Kevin Durant still has four years and $194.2M left on his current contract.
