In 2021, Durant, whose relationship with Kyrie Irving and James Harden – who moved earlier this year to Philadelphia – was relocated – failed to allow the nets to reach the heights he had hoped for, and he sprawled with the Nets for four years and $198 million. . The curling year was marked by difficulties, between Kyrie Irving’s refusal to be vaccinated against COVID-19, which prevented him from playing for much of the season, and the resentment that surfaced after James Harden’s transfer, finally being knocked out 4-0 in the first round of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics.

Durant’s transfer request comes just three days after 30-year-old Kyrie Irving announced he would opt out of an additional season with the Nets, although he could eventually be transferred.
