So far, Kevin Durant’s trade request stands. However, a meeting with Brooklyn Nets general manager Joe Tsai could change the tide.

It has already been almost a month since the two-time NBA champion requested a trade. This came not long after Kyrie Irving’s issue, another Brooklyn Net who was reportedly permitted to talk with other teams.

Unhappy at this development, Durant requested a trade with the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns mentioned as potential landing spots. But with the two teams reportedly folding.

The only other NBA team in the running for the services of the 12-time NBA All-Star is the Boston Celtics with Jaylen Brown allegedly in the center of a potential trade package.

The latest is that Durant is reportedly set to meet with Tsai this week, Heavy Sports reported.

However, there is no telling how this meeting will go. It won’t be surprising if both sides try to work things out, something that could diss any potential trade from happening, at least for now.

Trading Durant will be hard considering the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player still has four years left in his contract.

"I don't know," an unnamed source said to the outlet. "I have no idea what's going to come of that meeting. There are some things that KD is unhappy about, and I'm not sure any of that gets fixed here. But maybe it does."

The Nets are on uneven ground at the moment with Irving and possibly Durant seeking trades. Ben Simmons is still officially signed with the Nets but his tenure remains questionable due to health issues.

A better picture could be known in the coming weeks. If Tsai can mend things with Durant, it will be interesting if they will also weed out issues concerning “Uncle Drew.”
