Kevin Durant trade; staying with Brooklyn Nets; Patrick Beverley Twitter, news, updates

Kevin Durant may be staying in Brooklyn, but much of the drama that engulfed the Nets this summer doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.

On Tuesday, the same day Nets brass announced that Durant will move forward with head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks, Jazz guard Patrick Beverley appeared to weigh in on how the saga impacted the league this offseason.

“Yal can sit and don’t say nothing but that ain’t cool. It’s dudes with families out here who haven’t got a job because of this KD s–t. And to be on and off ain’t cool. Blessing Gang,” Beverley tweeted.

“It’s not good business. These owners can’t wait until new deal comes. All we doing is hurting the future. Good day. Blessing Gang,” he added in a separate tweet.

It didn’t take long for Durant to fire back, with the two-time NBA champ responding with the hashtag, “BLAMEKD.”

Beverley, who is no stranger to stirring the pot, then replied to Durant, “Damn gang who said I was talking about u. I’m speaking of how it was done. Both sides need keep that private. But noted.”

Durant then took aim at US journalist Jordan Hicks who slammed the All-Star for remaining quiet during the trade standoff.

“Not a single tweet to explain yourself, just pettiness,” Hicks tweeted.

“But then wanna get mad when reporters try and figure it out. But then wanna get mad when the rest of the league tired of you. But then wanna get mad when people fry you. I defended you before, but you really are soft.”

Durant clapped back: “I don’t have to explain myself to Jordan hicks. Who are u again?”

Earlier Tuesday, Marks confirmed that he met with Durant and his confidant, Rich Kleiman, in Los Angeles on Monday, along with Nash and Nets owner Joe Tsai. The group decided they want to “move forward” with their partnership.

“We are focusing on basketball, with one collective goal in mind: build a lasting franchise to bring a championship to Brooklyn,” the message read.Earlier this month, it had been reported that Durant gave Tsai an ultimatum to either trade him or part ways with Marks and Nash. Now, all parties will be entering the 2022-23 season together.

Durant, who joined the Nets in 2019, stunningly requested in June to be traded. In recent weeks, the 12-time All-Star had been linked to a bevy of teams, including the Celtics, the Heat, and most recently the Grizzlies.

Durant signed a four-year, $198 million extension with the Nets last summer.
