Kevin Durant reportedly requested a trade from the Nets shaking the franchise as it is about to lose its two superstars with Kyrie Irving likely getting traded to the Lakers.

Sports analyst Skip Bayless is of the opinion that Brooklyn should talk to KD and try to convince him to stay with the team and have a chance to win a championship.

“If I ran the Nets, I’d tell Kevin Durant, “You have 4 years left on your contract. You’re playing for the Nets next year, with Kyrie and Ben Simmons. We’re going to win it all.” If KD wanted a different coach, fine. But why give up KD & Kyrie and pretty much start over? Just me,” Bayless tweeted.
