The Kevin Durant saga continues for the Brooklyn Nets as superstar Kevin Durant met with team governor Joe Tsai out in London and delivered an ultimatum: either fire GM Sean Marks and coach Steve Nash or trade me.
It appears that Durant is definitely fed up with Nash and Marks as he is not happy with the direction the organization is going. Despite the Nets going out and bringing in really good pieces such as Royce O’Neale and TJ Warren, the former league MVP wants out of Brooklyn.
After the meeting between governor and superstar, Tsai took to Twitter with a clear message as it appears that he has chosen Marks and Nash over Durant. Tsai’s interests are focused on the Nets rather than whatever Durant wants.
Our front office and coaching staff have my support. We will make decisions in the best interest of the Brooklyn Nets.

As this saga plays out, the Nets have to make a move quickly. Training camp is in roughly six weeks and then the preseason begins on Oct. 3 for Brooklyn. They have to make a decision on what they plan to do with Durant as well as their front office.
