Begley: Third groups not keen to assist Nets commerce Kevin Durant

In an update on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, Ian Begley writes Friday that the one thing holding up KD trade talks is that teams are unwilling to work with Brooklyn on multi-team deals.

Begley writes:

Late last month, several people familiar with the Nets’ Kevin Durant negotiations were pessimistic about the possibility of a deal happening in the near future.

Part of the pessimism stemmed from the idea that teams had little appetite last month for teams to be the third or fourth team to facilitate a Durant trade.

“No one wants to help (Brooklyn make a deal),” one team observed.

While most of the Internet rumors are elsewhere, with KD making an outright deal with a second team, it’s still more likely that any deal involving a big player like Durant would be a multi-team deal.

The SNY reporter did not speculate on whether Durant might want to return it after the June 30. asked Joe Tsai for a trade just hours before his four-year, $198 million. entry into force of the USD contract. However, as Brian Lewis and Shams Charania have recently observed. , Irving is in a “good place” with the Nets.

A source close to Irving said this week that the seven-time All-Star is in a good place with the Nets and is comfortable heading into 2022-23. the season.

Irving on June 29 chose the expiring 36.5 million USD transaction.
