Last season it was James Harden, now it is Kevin Durant who is requesting the Nets to trade him to another team. Anthony Davis was another superstar who forced his way out of his team.
Such practice is not what the NBA likes and will be addressed when a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is negotiated, says the league commissioner Adam Silver.
“There’s always conversations behind closed doors between the players and the representatives of the teams. But we don’t like to see players requesting trades & we don’t like to see it playing out the way it is,” Silver said, per Brian Lewis of New York Post.
