They have an idea and Durant's general value has gone down (he's 6 months older and has suffered yet another leg injury) but the league has changed and there could be some better opportunities now (midseason) that weren't available when everyone was optimistic about their rosters late last summer.The Nets presumably already know what teams would offer for Durant. They shopped him before the season and didn’t like the offers then. I don’t see why they would change substantially.
Thankfully this didn't happen, but what if instead of having the best record in the league, Boston were struggling around .500 and there was some smoke about Jaylen leaving after next season? Would that make the Celtics likely to sweeten their reported Jaylen+ deal from last summer? Toronto was reportedly one of the Durant suitors as well, with Scottie Barnes being the sticking point. Has his lack of improvement (and the underwhelming performance by the Raptors as a whole) made them more or less likely to offer more for Durant? I believe Phoenix and Miami were atop his reported list when the trade demand first broke. Both teams have been just ok overall, but have shown flashes when healthy. Does either look to go all in now? I'll repeat that even as his overall value has declined to age and injury, it only takes one team to say that the NEED him this year, he's the piece that puts them over.
That aside - he's hurt, and no one is giving up a monster package for a 34 year old out with a knee injury, with no return date.
