The Knicks had high hopes of luring Kevin Durant to New York in 2019 when the two-time NBA champion decided to leave Golden State.

Despite a failed attempt to get KD as a free agent, the Knicks were among the teams that made calls to the Nets this offseason to check the possibilities of making a trade for the 33-year-old superstar.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the Knicks called Brooklyn regarding potential Durant trade, but both sides were aware of the fact that New York did not have enough assets to make the deal happen.

“The Knicks did make calls on Kevin Durant, from what I’m told. But I think both sides were cognizant they didn’t really have enough,” Charania said on the STUpodity podcast, per HoopsHype.
