The net doesn't seem to be able to put it all together.
Kyrie Irving's time with the net continues to deteriorate, and star Brooklyn Guard last week provided a list of destinations to prioritize if both sides did not sign acontract. Durant has also been reported because of thisCurrently away from the franchise.
Last Friday, The Ringer's Logan Murdock said in a Mismatch podcast, and Durant hasn't talked to the net for a few weeks.
"I don't think Kevin is confident in the front office right now," Murdoch said. "I don't know if he's leaving, but there's a lot of anxiety not only on Killy's side, but also on the KD side.
" His biggest beef is for the front office to understand Killy. I feel like I didn't grow up. When a guy leaves for two weeks at a time, I push it back ... Killy gets most of the responsibility, but KD says, "Hey, you guys are this guy. I didn't understand. " You didn't try to understand where he came from. Getty Images
COVID-19 Irving, who played only 33 games this season because he wasn't vaccinated, is Durant's best friend and part of the reason for the previous league. .. MVP is in Brooklyn.
Now that tensions between Irving and the front office are rising, Durant is not looking for a free agent in Brooklyn, according to Murdoch. Durant has not yet requested a trade. If Irving leaves, all you have to do is ask Brooklyn Brasshow the team will compete for the championship.
Murdoch added that Nets also gave up Adam Harrington, a team assistant and Durant's former personal trainer.
"[Harrington's Departure] has had a huge spillover effect on how Kevin feels about this now," Murdoch said. "He's still in this figure it out mode, but there's some fire in the smoke, and he's reassessing where he's standing with this."
Durant said in Friday's "The ETC" podcastthat he was "not involved at all" with Nets, who deals with Irving, and plans to avoid it.
"This is the man's livelihood," Durant said. "This is much bigger than me. Being a free agent is one of the most important times in your career. It doesn't depend on anyone else. I just do me. Wait for the time. "
