A pair of Western Conference stars have started recruiting the Brooklyn Nets forward.
Kevin Durant #7 of the Brooklyn Nets looks on during the second half against the Indiana Pacers. The future of the Brooklyn Nets is looking quite murky as Kyrie Irving has reportedly reached an impasse with the team, and there’s no telling what impact that’ll have on Kevin Durant’s future going forward. News of the impasse comes from The Athletic’s Shams Charania and things could be trending towards divorce for the two sides. While Irving has long been looked at as the lone domino to fall here, his departure could lead to Durant wanting out as well. As of right now, Durant has kept his cards close to his chest as he’s not formally asked for a trade in the event Irving leaves, and he has also confirmed he hasn’t spoken to the disgruntled guard about free agency. Despite nothing official, players have already started recruiting Durant to their team. A pair of Portland Trail Blazers stars posted the same image to their respective social media pages that show Durant in a Blazers jersey.
