This was clarified by correspondent Marc Stein of the Substack media on Tuesday, without revealing the identity of the representative concerned. However, he added that the 33-year-old would be willing to “cause an earthquake” to force the Nets into making a deal with him.

Speculation surrounding Durant since the playoffs concluded has been rife. The basketball player didn’t want to play for head coach Steve Nash and requested a transfer in June. But less than a year earlier, he had agreed to a four-year, $198 million contract extension; it will come into effect this fall.

Some teams, including the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat, have been mooted over a potential trade. In 2021-2022, the former Golden State Warriors, among others, averaged 29.9 points per game.
