When Kevin Durant requested a trade this past offseason, one of potential destinations for the two-time NBA champion was the Raptors.
Reportedly, the Nets wanted Toronto to include Scottie Barnes in the trade. In the end KD stayed in Brooklyn. Fred VanVleet would not make such trade either.
“I wouldn’’’t do it,” VanVleet said when asked if he would trade Barnes for Durant, per Wenzell Ortiz of Yahoo!. “I told you, I’m a loyal guy; I’m not a trade guy.”
This season the sophomore is averaging 14.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 33.1 minutes per game.
