Kevin Durant trade not happening soon: Rudy Gobert trade increased price tag









What’s the buzz on Twitter?


Draymond Green @Money23Green
Just watched the anchor on Sportscenter with Nick Fredell discuss KD wanting a trade, and called him emotional… Who are you to call someone emotional? What makes you comfortable? Talk BASKETBALL! Computers got y’all overly comfortable.

Knicks up 13-0 for their second straight Summer League game. Best offer the Nets might get for Durant is the Knicks’ summer starters. – 11:19 PM

Utah Jazz rookie Walker Kessler has many of the same attributes as Rudy Gobert — a drop-big, shot-blocking menace with limited post moves — but also brings his own unique attributes and personality to the table. sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20… – 4:25 PM

Why yes, every GM speaks with every GM they see in Vegas. Heat’s Elisburg and Nets’ Marks are going beyond cursory conversation – they’re dining together. My Nevada food industry sources haven’t said the topic, but Heat’s serious pursuit of Durant is well known in the NBA. – 1:44 PM


Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Heat GM Andy Elisburg and Nets GM Sean Marks were seen talking this morning in Las Vegas, per sources. Heat continues its pursuit of Kevin Durant. – 1:22 PM


Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
Great interest today in Las Vegas to see if Indiana indeed moves forward with its widely anticipated offer sheet for Suns RFA Deandre Ayton.
Ayton’s future is a prime curiosity at summer league beyond Brooklyn’s handling of Kevin Durant’s trade request.

Brian Windhorst believes the Nets are posturing in giving indications that Kevin Durant might come back. He thinks it is a reaction to the (low) offers they’re getting. – 12:10 PM


Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
If it really just winds up being Deandre Ayton for Myles Turner in a straight up sign-and-trade, with no draft compensation, that’s an obvious net loss. At least you’d be getting a starting C ahead of a potential move for Kevin Durant, but man, that’d be underwhelming for DA – 12:00 PM


Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Walker Kessler said he “grew up” watching Rudy Gobert so I now realize I need to get my last will and testament in order and find a crematorium. – 7:56 PM


Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Jazz CEO Danny Ainge and GM Justin Zanik agreed with Rudy Gobert’s opinion that Utah’s win-now window had closed. Zanik: “We fell short, so we need to recalibrate and try to go and open up the next window and hopefully it’s a long one. We’ve got work to do to start that.” – 7:03 PM


Eric Walden @tribjazz
Zanik said the Jazz loved Rudy Gobert, and that “Rudys don’t grow on trees,” but it got to the point that when the Wolves made the offer they did, the front office decided “this is in the best interest of the organization.” – 6:39 PM
