Reports say Steph Curry has reached out several times to Kevin Durant about “his chances of winning a fifth championship and surpassing LeBron James, with whom Curry is currently tied at four titles each.”
According to Side Action;
Kevin Durant wants to be traded out of Brooklyn, and as a result everyone is scrambling trying to figure out where he’ll land.
For now, it seems like trade talks have cooled off for Durant, although there are plenty of teams who have been interested. One such team is the Golden State Warriors, who have been linked to their former player.
Well now it appears there’s some chatter going on between KD and Curry about a potential return to the Bay for Durant. According to Ric Bucher of Fox Sports, it seems like Curry is plotting something interesting.
“A league source says Curry has reached out several times to Durant, eager to improve his chances of winning a fifth championship and surpassing LeBron James, with whom Curry is currently tied at four titles each.”
This report has not been verified by other sources as of right now, although it is easy to see why Steph would want to play with KD again.
The Nets might keep KD, though, if their price is not met.
“The vibe” around the Brooklyn Nets reportedly suggests the front office may be prepared to keep both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving despite the offseason trade rumors.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported the update Wednesday on Get Up, saying the Nets have yet to field the type of offers they’d want to blow up their roster (30-second mark of video).
“The market for Durant has not been as lucrative as the Nets were hoping, and the market for Kyrie is very thin. It’s essentially the Lakers, and the trade offer isn’t great,” Windhorst said.
The question is whether Durant, Irving and Ben Simmons could form a successful core next season after a drama-filled 2021-22 campaign—which saw the team eliminated in the first round of the playoffs before Simmons could make his team debut—followed by this offseason’s uncertainty.
On paper, that trio combined with a depth group that includes Joe Harris, who’s also been mentioned in trade speculation, Royce O’Neale, Seth Curry and Cam Thomas, among others, has the talent to seriously contend in the Eastern Conference.
