Kevin Durant strongly refuted an assertion from a “well-connected team executive” that suggested to Marc Stein of Substack that “Durant was more apt to retire than again play for the Brooklyn Nets.”
Durant is seeking a trade this offseason and no deal appears imminent.
“I know most people will believe unnamed sources over me but if it’s anyone out there that’ll listen, I don’t plan on retiring anytime soon,” wrote Durant on Twitter. “[Expletive] is comical at this point.”
Durant has four seasons remaining on his contract.
