Kevin Durant seemingly ends trade request after he and Nets announce they will 'move forward with our partnership

Aug 23, 2022

Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets appear to have mended fences after a tumultuous offseason.

The team announced via a statement from general manager Sean Marks that Marks, Durant, Nets head coach Steve Nash, Nets owner Joe Tsai and Rich Kleiman, Durant's business partner, all met and agreed to "move forward" heading into the 2022 season.

This effectively ends the nightmare that was the 2022 offseason for the Nets that began with misgivings about Kyrie Irving's future with the team and evolved into a full-blown meltdown when Durant officially requested a trade from the Nets with four years left on his contract. Whether or not this is the end of Durant's feud with the Nets remains to be seen, but it appears that the two sides have at least come to an understanding of their immediate futures together.
