Kevin Durant panic infects NBA amid potential Nets trade availability

Kevin Durant Nets trade

The Brooklyn Nets are caught in the eye of the offseason storm right now. Their problems seem to be compounding on top of one another. The team has been at an “impasse” when it comes to Kyrie Irving and his future in Brooklyn. That’s led to some serious speculation about what Kevin Durant would do after the dust settles with his All-Star teammate.

But whatever the case, teams are reportedly making preparations for the Nets star potentially being available in the coming days. That’s according to ESPN insider Zach Lowe on a post-NBA draft episode of his Lowe Post podcast:

“I can tell you this. This is what teams are doing. Teams are already operating under, not the assumption, but ‘we need to prepare for the contingency that Kevin Durant is available via trade in six days or seven days.’ … The whole league is now.”

When a perennial league MVP frontrunner and arguably top 15 player of all time could become available, almost without warning, it’s your civic duty as an NBA front office to make sure to at least put a bid in for the sweepstakes, should the Nets ultimately make him available.

It’s likely that nearly all 29 other teams, if given a clean avenue to acquire Kevin Durant, would jump through hoops to make it happen.
