Another new report suggests that the Brooklyn Nets’ grand experiment may be in danger of falling apart.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Kevin Durant is “considering options with his future” with the Brooklyn Nets, and is actively monitoring developments. Durant’s lack of commitment would open the door for a potential trade of Kyrie Irving as well.

We do not know exactly where Durant’s head is at, but his commitment to the organization clearly is not ironclad right now. This was a major fear the Nets had when it emerged that Irving’s return was no sure thing.

Durant has spent three seasons with the Nets. He missed the entirety of the first one due to injury, and got swept in the first round of the third. Only the second season, which saw a narrow loss to the eventual champion Milwaukee Bucks in the conference semifinals, could be considered anything close to a success.
