Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, his business manager Rich Kleiman told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Nets general manager Sean Marks is working with Durant and Kleiman on finding a trade, Kleiman told ESPN. The Nets, however, are not buoyed to honoring any of Durant’s preferred destinations and plan to make a deal that allows them the greatest return of assets, sources told ESPN.
Durant made the trade request directly to Nets owner Joe Tsai today.
As the Nets prepare to move one of the most valuable trade assets ever on the market, the entire roster will available to discuss in deals, sources told ESPN. Teams have been calling on Durant, and the Nets will certainly look for a historic return on players and draft picks.
