The Brooklyn Nets are trying to pull out all the stops.
All last season, we heard non-stop talk about Kevin Durant possibly joining the New York Knicks during the offseason, but that conversation has quickly changed as the Brooklyn Nets have become the odds on favorite to land Durant in free agency, according to Bleacher Report.
Durant’s offseason took a wild turn during the NBA Finals, when he tore his Achilles tendon after attempting to make a comeback in Game 5. He is fully expected to miss the entire 2019-2020 season, but he is still at the top of everybody’s wish list this offseason.
In an effort to bring him aboard, the Brooklyn Nets are trying to hit him in the heart by trying to sign DeAndre Jordan to the team. Not because he is a franchise changer, but because he is good friends with Durant.
The Nets are reportedly hesitant to bring Kyrie Irving on to the team without him bringing Durant right along with him.
