The negotiations between the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant are paralyzed due to the lack of agreement between both parties, who are not determined to give up their claims.

According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, the Nets aren’t thrilled with the idea of ​​acquiring Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole as centerpieces of the hypothetical trade, while the defending NBA champions aren’t about to give up Jonathan Kuminga and draft picks.

The report also explains that the Nets are more focused on trading point guard Kyrie Irving and then figuring out what to do with Durant, who has a 4-year, $194.2 million contract with Brooklyn that will give him at least $42 million a year. in salary.

To date the Nets have been very aggressive in the market upon learning of Durant’s request to be traded. Recall that Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports revealed weeks ago that the Nets offered Durant to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and 4 NBA Draft picks, a proposal that Minnesota immediately rejected.
