Begley: Third Group Would not Wish to Assist Nets Commerce Kevin Durant

Ian Begley, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving news update, wrote Friday that one thing that brought the KD trade talk to a standstill was the teams’ unwillingness to work with Brooklyn on multi-team deals.

Begley wrote:

Late last month, many people familiar with the Nets’ Kevin Durant talks were pessimistic about the likelihood of a deal being done in the near future.

Part of the pessimism stems from the idea that, as of last month, there was not much interest in the market for teams to act as third or fourth teams to facilitate Durant trading.

“No one wants to help (Brooklyn has made a deal),” one group commented.

While most Internet rumors point KD elsewhere in a straight deal with the second team, it’s still highly likely that any transaction involving a player as big as Durant will be the deal. many teams.

The SNY reporter did not discuss whether Durant wanted to run it again after asking to trade with Joe Tsai on June 30, just hours before his four-year, $198 million contract. it started. However, as Brian Lewis and Shams Charania have recently noted, Irving is “in a good position” with the Nets.

A source close to Irving said this week that the seven-time All-Star star is in a good position with the Nets and comfortably enters the 2022-23 season.

Irving has opted into his $36.5 million contract that is due to expire on June 29.
