Suns general manager claims Nets never wanted to trade Kevin Durant

Even though Kevin Durant requested a trade request from the Brooklyn Nets and there were discussions of a trade to the Suns, Phoenixโ€™s general manager claims that the team never intended to trade the sharpshooting forward.

Suns GM James Jones talked with The Arizona Republic about the trade rumors:

โ€œWe had discussions with Brooklyn about their desires and what they were trying to do, but ultimately, I would say like most teams, there was nothing to it.

Cause Brooklyn wanted to keep Kevin Durant in Brooklyn. And thatโ€™s why heโ€™s in Brooklyn and not on some other team, but as far as with us, I get it. Itโ€™s always a great topic of discussion, but the one thing people forget is that when youโ€™re talking about trades, or any player acquisition, the team that has the player has to be willing to move the player.โ€

It seems that even though the Suns were interested in acquiring Durant, the Nets were never really interested in exploring a trade with the franchise.
