The Brooklyn Nets granted Kyrie Irving’s trade request on Sunday when they sent him to the Dallas Mavericks, but that does not mean they are preparing to hold a fire sale.

Kevin Durant has become the subject of trade rumors now that the Nets have moved on from Irving. Teams have inquired about the two-time NBA Finals MVP, but ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Nets have not shown a willingness to part ways with Durant.

A report over the weekend said the Phoenix Suns were preparing to make a run at Durant. They were said to be at the top of Durant’s wish list when he requested a trade last summer.

At least one other contending team is supposedly interested in Durant, but the Nets do not sound ready to blow up their roster. They are 32-21 and want to win this season. Brooklyn refused to trade Durant over the summer despite his request, so there is no reason they would have motivation to do so now.
