Nets ready to wait for Kevin Durant transfer

After the earthquake caused by the request for the transfer of Kevin Durantthe situation has calmed down. The teams made their trade with free agency while Atlanta and Minnesota went for Dejounte Murray and Rudy Gobert. And Durant is still in Brooklyn.

Of course, the Nets receive a lot of phone calls, but the leaders are in no hurry. Our colleague Adrian Wojnarowski explained it on the SportsCenter program.

“I think the Nets are trying to put together a framework, for the rest of the league, on what kind of offers the franchise is expecting for Durant”says the famous insider. “Gobert’s move to Minnesota started to draw that. The market is still taking shape. Other franchises need to be creative and come up with ideas for the Nets. Brooklyn has time on its side. There is still plenty of time left in this offseason. No need to rush for a deal. »

As a reminder, Durant still has four years on his contract and Kyrie Irving has activated his last year for the 2022/2023 season. The Nets therefore still have three months before the start of the season to raise the stakes and obtain the best consideration. And as the interested teams are very numerous, they will undoubtedly be able to find what they are looking for, even if the options are limited with Ben Simmons.

The New York Post thus confirms the words of “Woj” by announcing that if Sean Marks and the leaders are not satisfied with the first offers proposed during the offseason, they could wait until training camp, for the winger as for the playmaker.

Letting the situation “rot” until the start of the season is obviously not ideal for the Nets. We saw with Irving, who was not vaccinated, or Simmons, who wanted to leave Philadelphia last season, that a star stuck on the bench, not playing, is not viable for a group.

Not to mention that once the season kicks off, especially if their results are good, some franchises may be more cautious about parting ways with multiple All-Stars to pick up a mid-exercise Durant or Irving.
