The 2022 NBA free agency is shaping up to be an all-time one to remember as teams are ready to make moves to better their current squad before the start of next season.
Free agency is crazy, but so could the potential trades that might happen. After Kyrie Irving had an impasse with the Brooklyn Nets earlier this week, many reports have surfaced explaining that Kevin Durant might want out.
That is all it took for Damian Lillard to shoot his shot as he took to Instagram and posted a photoshopped picture of Durant in a Blazers jersey.
According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets will have to chat with Durant about how they can reshape their roster – potentially without Kyrie Irving.
“There’s going to have to be some dialogue here to see if there’s a way they can move forward,” Wojnarowski said. “I think this is a very perilous time for the future of this Nets’ organization and this great experiment with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant coming together to try to win a championship in Brooklyn. It’s not going great.”
Portland recently traded for Jerami Grant and now Lillard is trying to help out even more.
This past season, Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists on 51.8% shooting from the field and 38.3% shooting from distance.
