Kevin Durant is a player that basically every NBA team would like to have on its roster. However, not all of the teams have the assets to make a realistic offer to the Nets for the two-time NBA champion.

In addition, Brooklyn’s asking price is reportedly extremely high which makes some teams think twice whether they want to give up that much for one of the best players in the league who will be 34-years-old this coming season.

According to Marc Stein, it is possible that the Nets will wait until training camp and could even try to keep Durant on the team if no good offers are made for him:

“Whispers have increasingly circulated in recent days that Brooklyn, in response to an underwhelming array of Durant offers to date, is prepared to hang on to the superstar forward in hopes that Durant’s desire to leave could soften between now and the start of training camp in late September. How much stomach Nets officials have to uphold that position — or if it proves to be a mere negotiating ploy — is a matter of debate.”

This past season Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 37.2 minutes per game.
