July 25, local time. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that a new team is competing for Kevin Durant , who demanded a trade from Brooklyn Nets.
Durant, who was reported to be a trade request on July 1st (June 30th local time), is a well-known talented person. The 33-year-old, who has joined the 12-time All-Star and 10-time All-NBA Team, won the rookie king, four-time top scorer, and season MVP (2014).
In 2017 and 2018 when he was a member of the Golden State Warriors, he won the championship for the second time in a row and was selected twice as the final MVP. Be a star.
The Boston Celtics, along with the Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns and the Toronto Raptors, are in contact with Durant’s trade, the media said.

However, according to ESPN, the Celtics offer a package of three Durant-winning traders, Brown and three unprotected draft first-round nominations (2025, 27, 29) and exchange rights (24, 26).
The Athletic’s Sham’s Charania reporter offered Brown and White draft nominations on the Celtics side, but Netz refused and asked for another rotation player for Brown, Smart, and multiple draft nominations. It is reported that it was.
Durant has a huge contract of about 198 million dollars (about 26,928 million yen) in the remaining four seasons. To get a 33-year-old veteran scorer, multiple mainstays and draft nominations are required, and the team to which the transfer will be transferred may change the roster significantly, so discussions for a trade agreement will continue.
