    Seems KD is not happy and Kyrie and him may be bolting......would you give them back their pick, and John Wall for Kevin Durant?

    Or just stay the course and build around the young guys?

    I mean I can see both sides, KD would be a great mentor for the young guys, and it would make us a playoff contender while we grow, he can play the role of CP3 to our young core.

    Or, you just ride it out and let him go somewhere else and pick high with their picks?

    Which would you do?

    Or would you do a couple of the Brooklyn picks or give them all back??????

    No, why not, maybe give them a couple of picks.......and Wall for salary matching.......

    Would it speed up our development? Clearly we would not be winning anything right away, but we might be able to flip Durant too....

    Why it gives them their picks back - and it looks like Kyrie is out, and KD is making noises he wants out.

    There's a big possibility that the Nets would like to have theirs picks back.

    Kyrie might want to try a "mentor" role to JGreen(they've been communicating) before retiring early.

    KD would ride along Kyrie...

    What's the source about KD wanting out of Brooklyn? Also, he was just voted all NBA-second team, so he's essentially still a top 10 player when healthy. No way they would take a washed up Wall and their own draft picks back.

    Well isn't his contract up too, or very soon? Seems if he wants out they need to get something....but gotcha.

    They'd probably want a pick or two and young prospects, I would guess Sengun, JC, Garuba, EG and a few picks at least.

    He will be 34 before the season begins. He's become more and more injury prone. And he would be angry as hell to be here playing with actual children. So that's going to be a no for me, dawg.

    Why would KD spend any of his precious few remaining 'elite' seasons in any situation that isn't contending for a ring?

    For all their picks back? Lollllll....Pass.

    Wall and 17 to Brooklyn
    Durant/Tate to Memphis
    Ziare Williams/Brandon Clarke to Houston works for me.
