NYo Celtics neither Heat neither Raptorsnot even the grizzlies, who joined the bidding at the last minute. Any. The final destination of be… brooklyn. He won’t budge and fulfill his contract, at least for this coming season. He has four more years left in their relationship.

In a brief statement the Nets it ended the soap opera of the summer and the transfer that could have changed everything. The team’s own general manager, Sean Marksaid:

Steve Nash and I, along with Joe Tsai and Clara Wu Tsai, have met with Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman in Los Angeles yesterday. We agree to continue our relationship. We are focused on basketball with one collective goal in mind: to build a lasting franchise that brings a championship to Brooklyn.”

With these words, his own marks confirmed that the speculations were over, that the negotiations in one way or another had ended and that during I will continue to play for the Nets.

As Adrian Wojnarowski rightly pointed out, the situation of during has remembered and much to the lived by Kobe Bryant in 2007. A turbulent summer, full of rumours, with a transfer request and an irreconcilable relationship. But no conversation with the many clubs that have called came to fruition. There was no agreement and finally I ended up returning to the team. To the Lakers in Kobe’s case, to the Nets in Durant’s.

With the failed transfer of during the Nets, of course, will join the list of candidates to dethrone the Warriors in the NBA. Now, if Durant finally allows it, the Brooklyn team will be able to think only of basketball.
