The Nets' recent foray into the world of super teams may be over.
According to someone familiar with the motion, who is not authorized to discuss it publicly.
Durant chief executive Rich Kleiman told ESPN that the network gave him permission to find trading partners.
Durant's proposal comes three days after Kyrie Irving announced the final year of his four-year contract with the Nets.
Durant and Irving signed four-year contracts with the Nets in 2019.
But last year, Durant signed an extension that runs until the 2025-26 season.
Durant, 33, is widely regarded as one of the highest-scoring forwards in the N.B.A. Story.
In 2014 he was named the league's most valuable player, which was one of four seasons in which he played N.B.A. in scoring.
Last season, Durant played 55 games and averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game.
