Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant requested a trade right before NBA free agency opened just over a month ago, but it has been mostly quiet on the trade front. While the Boston Celtics’ reported inclusion in Durant discussions sparked some life in the rumor mill not too long ago, the excitement has died back down and there’s no trade in sight. Now, according to Steve Bulpett of Heavy, Durant is planning to meet with Nets owner Joe Tsai soon to discuss the situation.
“What I’m hearing is that KD is going to meet with the owner this week,” an NBA executive told Bulpett. “He’s going to go directly to the owner, Joe Tsai, sometime this week. We’ll see how that works.”
Will Kevin Durant retract his trade request or hold firm at this meeting? Who knows.
“I don’t know,” said the exec. “I have no idea what’s going to come of that meeting. There are some things that KD is unhappy about, and I’m not sure any of that gets fixed here. But maybe it does.”
