In recent days, the transfer of Kevin Durant has taken a new path very different from the first weeks since the star of Brooklyn Nets requested his exchange to go to another team this summer. From the interest of the Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors it has passed to that of the Boston Celtics and the fixation of the Nets themselves in New Orleans Pelicans.
Regarding the latter, the New York franchise is especially focused on getting an agreement with the Louisiana team. The personnel that the Pelicans have on the roster have been what has attracted the most attention to Brooklyn. In particular, the figure of Brandon Ingram.
According to NBA Rumors, the Brooklyn Nets have been trying to negotiate Durant’s departure to the New Orleans Pelicans with the aim of agreeing to a larger trade than Rudy Gobert’s to the Minnesota Timberwolves. And Ingram is the main desire of New Yorkers.
However, Michael Scotto (Hoopshype) assures that the Pelicans have not even considered putting one of their best players on the team on the table. The franchise sees Ingram as essential on a team that is already primed to compete with the return of Zion Williamson and the presence of CJ McCollum.
Durant, with his eyes elsewhere
For Kevin Durant, in addition, New Orleans is not the destination he thought of when he requested the ‘transfer request’. Everything indicates that the Pelicans will be another team that gets out of the fight for the star of the Nets.
