Woj drops a truth bomb on the complexities of Kevin Durant’s trade
The Brooklyn Nets are in talks with several Summer League teams to complete a Kevin Durant trade, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen anytime soon.
According ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, while the Summer League provided the Nets and other NBA executives with an opportunity to talk and possibly strike a deal, the reality is that a trade of this magnitude usually takes time to settle. As has been reported multiple times over the past few days, any trade for KD will likely involve multiple teams due to Brooklyn’s massive asking price for players and superstar picks.
“There is no sense with the Nets or with teams talking to the Nets that they have a huge urgency or that they are trying to move things quickly to find a solution. [and] get an agreement. They [Nets] want to get a deal, they want to get the best deal possible. But those things take on a life of their own, and I think you’ll see more of those face-to-face conversations here in the weeks and days to come, but that doesn’t guarantee there’s going to be a KD trade in the Summer League,” Woj shared on Durant’s business front, via ClutchPoints Twitter.
It will certainly be interesting to see how Kevin Durant’s business saga develops. Plenty of teams are interested, but the Nets have complete control over what they can do with the superstar forward. There were even talks earlier about how they can just choose to work things out with KD and try to work out their differences if they can’t find an ideal trade.
For now, fans just have to wait and be patient while waiting for any Durant deal. As Woj suggested, it could be a long time before we see anything materialize.
“The Nets or teams that talk to the Nets are moving quickly to get the best possible deal…but that doesn’t guarantee there will be a KD trade in the Summer League.”
