Nets Still Trying To Trade Kevin Durant

While the Brooklyn Nets may be increasingly likely to retain Kevin Durant as his market has been slow to materialize, a trade is still something they are actively seeking.

"The Nets are still trying to find a deal for Kevin Durant," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "I think if Kevin Durant came to Brooklyn and said 'Hey, I've changed my mind, I want to be here and I'm committed to this.' Of course, they would want them to stay. But if Kevin Durant is not doing that, you're still trying to trade him. You want players who want to be there. You don't want the environment to be filled with players who are unhappy and don't want to be a part of it. They have to get value for him. They have to get significant value for him.

"The trade scenarios out there are still complex. Miami is a very motivated trade team. But we've been through it. Bam Adebayo and Ben Simmons can't be on the team together, based on their contracts. It would have to be a lot of third and fourth team involvement.

"Phoenix is a little more limited now because they can't trade Deandre Ayton. They were never going to trade Devin Booker. Do they have enough assets to do it?

"Toronto doesn't want to part with Scottie Barnes. That's their stance. I think Brooklyn, right now, wouldn't consider a deal without Scottie Barnes.

"There are still other teams out there. But I think for the Nets, because Kevin Durant has four years left on his deal, this is different than Kawhi Leonard four years ago when he was going into the last year of his deal.

"There's no deal imminent for Brooklyn, but they're still trying to find a trade."

Tim Bontemps added that other teams don't currently feel compelled to improve their offer to the Nets.
