According to Steve Bulpett of Heavy Sports, “Kevin Durant is expected to meet” Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai this week.
Bulpett: “The source tells me that Kevin Durant is expected to meet with the Nets owner this week: “I have no idea what will come of that meeting. There are a few things KD is unhappy about, and I’m not sure anything will be fixed. here. But maybe yes.”
The Nets were swept in the first round of the NBA Playoffs by the Boston Celtics, which was a huge disappointment considering they have Durant and Kyrie Irving.
Durant signed with the Nets in the summer of 2019, but missed the first season due to injury.
In his two seasons with Irving in Brooklyn, they have won just one playoff series (2021 vs. Celtics).
This offseason, Durant has been involved in a lot of trade rumors, as on June 30, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that he requested a trade from the Nets.
Woj on June 30: “Kevin Durant made the trade request directly to Nets owner Joe Tsai today, sources tell ESPN.”
So far, Durant is obviously still with the Nets, and the trade request came over a month ago.
If Durant and the Nets meet this week, it will be very interesting to see what comes out of it.
Before the Nets, Durant won two NBA championships in three seasons with the Golden State Warriors.
He has also played for the Seattle SuperSonics and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
