As soon as the Brooklyn Nets announced that Kevin Durant was available for a trade, more than half a league called on the phone of Sean Marks. However, there are very few teams that can muster enough loot to tempt the New York franchise. In his last intervention in ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski assures that the Nets expect to receive a historic trade for the departure of KD.
According to the journalist, the bidding will begin at levels similar to those that moved with the arrivals of Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers and Anthony Davis to the Lakers. But the Nets expect to get even more in return. For his part, Brian Windhorst points out that the transfer will surely end up being three-way due to the difficulty of balancing salaries in a movement of such caliber.
Since the season ended, Brooklyn has had to juggle to get a minimal idea of its future in the short term. Which is now completely gone. The franchise’s priority at the moment is to settle Durant’s departure, leaving matters with Kyrie Irving in the background until they manage to solve the forward’s future.
