Would the Nets trade Kevin Durant if Kyrie Irving doesn’t stay with the team?

The situation of Kyrie Irving‘s possible departure from the Brooklyn Nets could bring devastating consequences for the team from the “Big Apple”, because in addition to the fact that the player has the option of not taking the option for one more year of contract, with which he can leave or force the team to a change, according to press reports, this could also mean the departure of the most important player of the team, Kevin Durant.

According to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, several NBA teams are pinning their hopes on Irving’s departure from the Nets, as it is thought that if that happens the likelihood is high that Brooklyn will look to trade Kevin Durant and start over with a new rebuild.

What will be the future of Kevin Durant?

“There are teams rooting for Irving to opt-out and walk away from the Nets, believing it would give them a chance to cobble together trade packages to acquire Durant,” Wojnarowski said. “As much as Durant asking out hangs over the Nets, there’s also the reality that four years on his contract will mean he has little, if any, say on when or where he would be traded. This would be a small-market team’s dream, robbing a goliath of an MVP-level talent whose contractual circumstances would leave him little choice but to play for them.”

If this report is correct, the NBA offseason would have Durant in its most coveted piece and we would have to watch to see if the move could even happen during next Thursday’s Draft, in which the Nets could be a major player.
