Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the franchise. Yet, there has been no serious traction on a deal, and a recent report states that Durant has ‘gone dark’ altogether.

So, when does Durant get traded? Or does he get sent away at all? Nobody has any idea, but the cost will likely be a monster package, especially after seeing what Rudy Gobert went for.

The Minnesota Timberwolves kicked the tires on a trade for Durant. But, the reported package for the superstar was an outlandish amount.

According to Chris Haynes and Vince Goodwill of Yahoo Sports, the proposed deal included FOUR picks AND Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. That sure seems like a lot of assets, although the Timberwolves might have done that to themselves after acquiring Gobert for a monster amount from the Utah Jazz.


The Nets Are Getting Roasted For Reported Asking Price Of Kevin Durant

If this is what the Nets are after in a trade for Durant, it might be a long time before they find a suitor. Is it reasonable? Perhaps. Is it a lot? Yes, but then again, it’s Durant.

Still, there aren’t many teams that can offer more than this, and the Nets might have no choice but to keep Durant around until a suitable trade pops up.

The Nets quickly got roasted for such a high asking price, even if it is just for an MVP-caliber player.

The Nets might not have very much leverage. If they can’t find a partner and Durant is back in 2022-2023, it could be another drama-filled season, especially since he requested a trade.
