Nick Wright: “That’s the trade, America, a poor man’s Kevin Durant, plus a frisky rookie in Herb Jones, four first-round picks, and another role player [Larry Nance, Jr.]. It allows the Nets to rebuild, get an All-Star, and get draft equity, and it allows the Pelicans to win right now. KD is your #1, Zion is your #2, CJ McCollum is your over-qualified #3, and the coach used to coach KD in Golden State [Willie Green]. This is the trade that works for everyone. I don’t know if KD wants to go to New Orleans, I don’t know why he wouldn’t want to go to New Orleans, but it works basketball-wise in every way, this is the trade that should happen.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Nick Wright explain why he thinks the Nets should pull off this blockbuster deal with the New Orleans Pelicans in a swap that would center around Kevin Durant and Brandon Ingram.
Check out the video above as Wright details why the trade would make sense for both teams, in the event that Nets owner Joe Tsai doesn’t give into Durant’s demand and fire coach Steve Nash, and GM Sean Marks.
