Kevin Durant is forcing the hand of the Brooklyn Nets with a trade ultimatum. It isn’t a small ask either. He has informed the Nets that they are going to have to get rid of head coach Steve Nash or trade him.
Senior lead NBA reporter Sham Charania, who works for The Athletic and Stadium reported on the tense situation earlier this afternoon.
