Kevin Durant Rumors: Star 'Balked' at Straight-Up Trade for D'Angelo Russell
 

 
Kevin Durant was reportedly not a fan of being traded straight up to the Brooklyn Nets by the Golden State Warriors for D'Angelo Russell.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com wrote a column Thursday investigating the use of player leverage during multiple negotiations this offseason and delved into the sign-and-trade that sent Durant to the Nets.

He pointed out there wasn't a notable advantage for Durant to be included in a sign-and-trade at first since the Nets could sign him outright, while Russell was drawing interest from other teams as well and also wouldn't necessarily benefit from such a move.

What's more, Windhorst noted Durant required Golden State to include a first-round pick in the deal in order to agree to the deal, believing it to be an unfair trade for the Nets otherwise.

Deron Williams showed how trash he really was with this team.

He was suppose to be a 18 10 guy with this squad.

Brook Lopez garbage rebounder.

Smh dudes had AK47, Terry, Reggie Evans and Shaun Livingston off the bench too.

Good sh*t KD he know he getting up there in age. Russell is a young a*set you get something for him.




I don’t even understand why they reporting it Russell straight up for KD is disrespectful anyway
They wouldn't have been able to sign Kyrie/Jordan without the trade.

So KD walking for nothing is even more disrespectful to gsw in this sense.

And gsw agreeing to give DLo the max to make salary match is more then enough to say thank you to KD

Kd for DLo straight up is disrespectful. So kd and a first for DLo must be worse right ? DLo hold more value

Deron's ankles were long gone. He was my favorite PG in the league while in Utah.

then they had to face this.

He got his own squad a pick and got dlo max money. KD looked out but then Media paints him as having some issue. Media creates narratives to keep people interested. KD is not like that at all

This right here is the perfect example of a post to create a false narrative:
OP conveniently left out the following:

According to Windhorst, Durant "initially balked at being traded for Russell straight up" and required Golden State to include a first-round pick in the deal, believing it to be an unfair trade for the Nets otherwise.If that pick falls within the top 20 next season, the Nets will instead receive a second-round pick in six years.

Durant's leverage also helped the Nets convince the Warriors to take Shabazz Napier's and Treveon Graham's contracts off their hands. Golden State then traded the duo to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with $3.6 million.




See, KD used his leverage to get a pick, AND cut bad salary from the books..

Thats SMART...

Way to go OP with the half message...

Smart move. He's one of the few players who understands that sign-and-trades cripple your team (see CP3 w/giving up Lou Will, Bev & Montrez; PG13 in a couple years, etc.).

He ensured he got an a*set out of that trade to aid his new team. More players need to be aware of how crippling S&T's are.
