The fact the Nets would turn that down for a 34 year old Durant is telling. Another FO trying to dig themselves out of their own demise.
Yeah, that is just crazy. They got KD for free in the first place (Russell s&t wasn't necessary). The fact that we are offering up a young all-star, very good role player, and a pick is huge for them. KD isn't 28.
If I'm the Cs, I hold steady. BKN needs to compete over the next few years since they don't have any of their own picks. Sure, they can acquire some late picks from another team who will then have KD, but it could be a Tatum/Brown/Sexton situation all over again if they suck.
KD/Curry for Brown/White/1st. If it takes another 1st to get the deal done, then I probably fold and do it, but we need to keep Smart on the Cs.
