NBA Roundup:

Kevin Durant was traded by the Brooklyn Nets to the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves offered center Karl-Anthony Towns, a guard Anthony Edwards, as well as four draft picks. The Timberwolves turned down the offer. Durant is an arguably top-three NBA basketball player. However, the Timberwolves refused to make the trade. Durant is likely to stay in Brooklyn as the Nets hope for a similar return. Most teams are unwilling to part with that much talent.

Lakers’ new coach Darvin Ham says guard Russell Westbrook has been “counted out prematurely.”

“I got a wholehearted plan, a clear plan on how I’m going to use him. … I think he’s going to flourish. We ain’t going to try to curtail his energy.”

Brad Turner from the LA Times gave an update regarding the Kyrie-Irving sweepstakes

“I do think at some point before they get to camp, Kyrie is playing for the Lakers… from everything I’ve read & been told, the Nets will not do anything regarding Kyrie until they trade Kevin Durant.”

The Philadelphia 76ers were “close” to trading Eric Gordon on draft night, but talks fell apart. Numerous teams had offered to the Rockets a first round pick. However, they were turned down.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Kyrie Irving will be on the Lakers eventually.

“Kyrie Irving absolutely wants to be a Los Angeles Laker… I doubt Kyrie will be back with Brooklyn, I think he’ll be on the Lakers, but I don’t know when that’ll happen.”

Windhorst added that the Nets thought there would be a “massive” bidding war for Durant, but the bidding war isn’t “hot,” although most teams seem interested in Durant.

The Lakers will have a plan B if they can’t trade for Irving: attempt to trade for sharpshooter Budy Hield or Eric Gordon.

DeandreAyton, Suns center, has been offered by the Pacers to sign a contract or negotiate a signing-and trade deal with center Myles Turner.

After missing 2021 due to spinal cord injuries, Center Aron Baynes will be back in Las Vegas for the NBA.
