With superstar Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving requesting trades out of Brooklyn, the Nets organization is accepting offers and at the moment there is zero traction.

NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Los Angeles hasn’t really been aggressive in the pursuit of seven-time All-Star Irving.

“Similar to Durant, a very slow moving market right now. I think unlike Kevin Durant, I think there is a limited number of teams where it might make sense. I do think there are teams that would like to do deals for him. It’s different from the sign-and-trade he tried to get. Teams would have had to sign him for multiple years. He’s essentially on an expiring contract. I think that teams that need to improve their talent, they can take some risks with Kyrie Irving. The Lakers have yet, I’m told, to be aggressive in trying to put a deal together to get [Kyrie] from Brooklyn. That may come, that may evolve with time. But so far right now, there’s no traction really on deals with either Irving or Durant. And they don’t have to trade either. They’re both under contract. They could bring them back to start the season. I don’t think that’s the ideal scenario for Brooklyn. I think it’s trying to find get the biggest haul of assets they can but again, there’s a lot of time left in this off-season and a lot more talks that are coming.”

While teams are still interested in the stars, the Nets seem steadfast on taking their time and ensuring a trade where they receive talent and draft picks.
