NASCAR World Reacts To The Hailie Deegan Crew News
Kevin Durant remained silent about the business rumours, but he quickly brushed off retirement talks.
NBA insider Mark Stein recalled an anonymous league executive during the NBA Summer League saying that Durant was more likely to retire than follow suit for the Brooklyn Nets again.
Durant slammed that notion in a Twitter post Monday evening. "I know most people would believe me at unknown sources.
But if there's anyone out there who will listen, I don't plan on retiring any time soon," Durant said.
Stein clarified that he called the retirement a "grave exaggeration" that he "simply can't believe", but he cited the executive's claim that it is possible to stop Durant now.
Durant has reportedly asked for a trade until the Nets get rid of head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks.
With four years left on his contract, Durant may not have much leverage unless he does something drastic to force him out of Brooklyn.
