With the 2022-2023 NBA season right around the corner, the Brooklyn Nets and star Kevin Durant don’t appear any closer to mending fences.
Over the weekend, Durant reportedly gave Nets owner Joe Tsai an ultimatum; to either fire general manager Sean Marks and head coach Steve Nash or trade him.
With the latest twist in the Durant/Nets saga possibly accelerating things regarding a possible trade, the list of suitors for the 12-time All-Star continues to grow. While the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors have already been linked to Durant, another Eastern Conference foe has entered the fray, the Philadelphia 76ers.
According to SNY’s Ian Begley, the 76ers have joined the Celtics as ‘welcome landing’ spots for Durant.
