NBA – NBA star Durant gives ultimatum: “Coach or me”

Cologne (SID) – The basketball star Kevin Durant, who is willing to emigrate, has given the owner of the Brooklyn Nets an ultimatum. In an interview with Joe Tsai, the 33-year-old made his displeasure with the sporting leadership clear and, according to the sports portal The Athletic, is said to have demanded that coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks be fired. Otherwise he would go.

Durant is unhappy with the franchise’s sporting focus. The Nets had already failed in round one at the Boston Celtics in the past playoffs. During the season, superstar James Harden was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, a sporting blow to the neck.

Durant came to New York in 2019. In June 2021, he had committed himself to the Nets for another four years. The signing should net the two-time NBA champion (with the Golden State Warriors) $198 million. Several clubs have already expressed interest in Durant, including Boston, the Miami Heat and the Toronto Raptors.
