Kevin Durant hasn’t spoken to the Nets in weeks?

Not much of Murdock’s opinion was optimistic if you’re a Nets fan. Indeed, he referred to the current situation of the franchise as “annihilation” in the podcast, suggesting perhaps more forcefully than other pundits that Durant could indeed leave. “The vision is about to crumble,” he wrote. “It didn’t have to be like this,” he said in summary. “This team… and it’s ironic. Kevin came to reconcile relationships, build relationships with his BFFs and it doesn’t work. It does the exact opposite. And that’s like winning Golden State…” “Now you’ve got reports that Kyrie is looking elsewhere. I made some calls. Kevin Durant hasn’t spoken to the team in weeks. I don’t think Kevin has faith in the front office right now. I don’t know if he’s about to leave, but there’s a lot of unease from not only the Kyrie side, but the KD side as well.”

Whoever did that Dame/KD photoshop was smart enough not to give it #7 and let it go back to 35. Knowing that is a key to a successful sweater swap. I’ve seen Myles Turner in a #33 Celtics jersey and that dispels the intrigue for me. † 4.10 pm

You have no idea how funny it is to see all these kids hate, hate and hate me for a month and subtweet about Jabari changing it and now talking about him like he’s the next KD. It really is a surreal experience. † 15:27

If Kyrie Irving leaves the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant will reportedly request a trade.

Kevin Durant: Awww I’m so proud of these guys† -through Twitter / June 26, 2022

And Murdock repeated reports that Durant, who had recruited free agents in the past, isn’t doing so now. “At least now he’s one of those guys who doesn’t want to recruit, isn’t in a position to recruit or doesn’t feel like he’s in a position to recruit whether you like it or not† -through NetsDaily / June 26, 2022

Murdock pointed out several times that the relationship between Nets and Irving is central. “His biggest problem is that he feels like the front office hasn’t come to understand Kyrie, whatever that means. I would push back on that if a guy leaves for two weeks at a time… Kyrie gets the lion’s share of the blame. But I think KD believes that ‘hey, you guys didn’t understand this man. You didn’t try to figure out where he came from.’” -via NetsDaily / June 26, 2022
