The Brooklyn Nets are willing to grant Kevin Durant’s trade request, but for those thinking the franchise will be in a rush to do so, then they’re mistaken.

Brooklyn has no reason to find a trade for Durant as soon as possible. With that said, they are more than willing to wait until the right offer comes along. Besides, KD has four years left in the $194 million contract he signed in 2021.

Per Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype: The Nets plan to wait until they get an offer that accommodates their asking price with Durant’s contract guaranteed over the next four years.

This is definitely the right move for the Nets. Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the NBA, and they cannot simply give him away for cheap. With their future at stake as well, Brooklyn will have to maximize his value and get the best return they can take for the superstar.

According to the same update from Scotto, the Nets are now seeking a combination of All-Star players, young rising stars and unprotected first-round picks and pick swaps for Durant. While some might think it’s too much for a 33-year-old, the asking price for KD has actually gone up after the Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Rudy Gobert from the Utah Jazz for five players and four first-round picks.

It remains to be seen which team will pull the trigger for KD, but with how things are, fans shouldn’t expect for the trade to happen soon.
