So the Nets’ return package for Durant could be historically large.

ESPN Brian Windhorst provided an update on this topic during a speech at the Sports Center.

“There are a number of teams that have made interesting offers,” Windhorst said. “From what I’ve been told, the Nets are telling teams they need a young star player and they’re looking for at least three first-round draft picks.”

Windhorst later added, “It seems to be the starting point you could start from: a star player and a lot of picks.”

The Nets could go in several different directions with the Durant trade. They could pursue assets for the future such as first round players and young players. They could also prioritize established veterans who could help Brooklyn fight in the Eastern Conference next season.

Brooklyn shouldn’t rush this process either. Durant has very little leverage because his four-year contract extension worth $194 million kicks off with the 2022-23 campaign. It’s not even close to free will. The Nets can take their time and study the situation before moving on to what they think is the best comeback possible.
