Woj says ‘no traction’ on trades for Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, hints Nets may wait them out

Photo by Elsa/ In his latest read of the Nets situation, Adrian Wojnarowski, speaking on ESPN, says that there is “no traction” on deals on involving either Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving, and raised the possibility of the two superstars still being Nets when training camp opens at the end of September. He also threw cold water on reports that the Lakers are moving aggressively on trading for Irving. Reports out of Yahoo! Sports and SNY among others had Irving and possibly Joe Harris headed to L.A. for Russell Westbrook and draft compensation. "The Lakers have...

NetsDaily Off-Season Report - No. 10

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Every weekend, we’ll be updating the Nets’ off-season with bits and pieces of information, gossip, etc. to help fans get ready for ... whatever. Where to begin? At the end, of course. The “Clean Sweep” is over. The “Big Three” era is over. It’s about “Grit and Grind” and the future. At this point, no one knows who the Nets will be next season, next month, next week or even tomorrow. It is fluid and uncertain ... and not at all positive. Other than perhaps Julius Erving being sold to the 76ers in October 1976,...

FAREWELL: Bruce Brown signs with Denver for two years, $13 million

Bruce Brown has agreed to a 2-year, $13M+ deal with the Denver Nuggets, sources tell ESPN.— Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) July 1, 2022 Andrews later added the second year is a player option, making it appear that the Nuggets gave Brown the taxpayers MLE.

Don’t expect major moves immediately as Nets sift through offers, take stock

Photo by Matteo Marchi/ “I think it’s going to take at least a few days to flush everything out.” - Adrian Wojnarowski. That seems like an understatement. Woj was talking Friday about what the Nets can get for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in trade talks. The Nets want a lot and of course they should ask for a lot but whether they get a lot is the open question. Sean Marks has some leverage: these are potential Hall of Famers we’re talking about BUT everyone on the other side of Marks phone knows the Nets GM is in a bad place. Still, they are ready to...

Where Nets stand, where they go from here

Photo by Evan Yu/NBAE via So where do we stand and where do we go from here? This IS a Net rebuild no matter how it’s spun. The concept that you can win while rebuilding is every GM’s dream. It is also a fallacy. You have to make a choice. If the Nets get a decent return on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, then you might get a playoff team, but if you don’t — and history says they may not — they are at the beginning of a long process. Yes, the GM has done it before and yes, in some ways, the situation now is a MUCH better situation than it was in 2016 when...

STAYING: Nicolas Claxton and Patty Mills elect to re-sign

STAYING: Nicolas Claxton and Patty Mills elect to re-sign

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Nets are keeping the band together... sort of. Brooklyn got to business within the first hour of free agency, bringing two holdovers from the 2021-22 season back on brand new two-year contracts. Up first was Patty Mills, who recently turned down his $6.2 million player option earlier in the week. It was presumed by some that Mills was set to test the market and find a new home, but those worries were quickly shot down when the Nets elected to retain him on a two-year, $14.5 million deal. Mills is, of course, one of the preeminent...

TRADE: Nets acquire F Royce O’Neale for first-round pick

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports He’s here. The Kevin Durant replacement. Okay, not really. On the day that the Brooklyn Nets’ franchise player officially put in his trade request to Joe Tsai and Sean Marks, the Nets made another move on the fringes, sending the lesser of their own two 2023 first-round picks from Philadelphia or Houston (via the James Harden trade) to Utah for swingman Royce O’Neale, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. O’Neale, a 6’4” wing, has long been a pivotal member of Utah’s playoff-tested group and has shot 38.1 percent from three in five NBA...

As free agency opens and rumors fly, Nets still don’t have clarity on their superstars

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports With free agency about to begin (6:00 p.m. ET Thursday), the Nets situation remains uncertain. While Kyrie Irving has decided to opt in, numerous pundits suggest that he may still be moved and Kevin Durant still hasn’t been heard from ... at least on his future in Brooklyn. As Brian Windhorst said Wednesday... “When Kyrie announced he was opting in, I was like ‘okay, we can move on. This won’t be a thing,’ said Windhorst. “But that’s not what my phone was telling me. That’s not what the executives were telling me. That’s...

ESPN: Nets goal is culture ‘re-set’ ... and it could still result in a Kyrie Irving trade

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Brooklyn Nets and Kyrie Irving have declared a truce but have yet to begin peace talks and if those talks fail, there is a lot of speculation that the crisis between and team and superstar could still lead to a break-up. In a lengthy discussion on ESPN’s Get Up Wednesday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst and Tim Bontemps discussed how the Nets are interested not just in a return by Irving but a “reset” of the team’s relationship with its superstars and its culture. For Woj, that reset could still lead to a trade....
