Things are getting tense between Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets as the disgruntled superstar apparently told team owner Joe Tsai to fire Steve Nash and Sean Marks or Durant wanted a trade. Tsai then tweeted that the coaching staff and front office has his full support, signaling the stalemate would continue.

The end is not in sight unless the Nets lower their asking price, which they won't. Thanks to the James Harden trade, the Nets owe all their picks to Houston for the next five years, so sending Durant out for peanuts in order to tank is out of the question. And it's nearly impossible to put a price on a player of Durant's caliber anyway. No team is going to rise to the Nets' asking price, but that isn't stopping them from shooting for the moon.

Boston Celtics reporter Adam Himmelsbach wrote about the possibility of Durant ending up in green for the Boston Globe today. According to Himmelsbach, Brooklyn attempted to squeeze Boston for not only Jaylen Brown, the most popular KD trade piece on the market right now, but also Jayson Tatum.
