    No solid trade market for Kevin Durant? Nets could wait this out until season

    Would the Nets be willing to let the potential Kevin Durant trade drag on until closer to the season? Recent reports seem to suggest that could be the case with the market for the superstar possibly not materializing in a meaningful way right now. It would be an interesting gambit from Brooklyn, especially considering they have him under contract for the next four years. There would appear to be no rush on that front and if there isn't a suitable deal then why should the Nets just make something happen for the sake of it? The Locked on Nets break down the situation and the moving parts around a potential trade. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

    Kyrie Irving shocked a lot of people on Monday when he, somewhat out of nowhere, decided to pick up his player option for next season, opting to return to the Brooklyn Nets. After rumors he would opt out and was seeking a trade, Irving reversed course and decided to remain with Brooklyn for at least another year beside Kevin Durant.

After getting a little outside perspective on the wild offseason around Kyrie Irving, Adam and Chris discuss the impact the NBA Finals will have on the league going forward.

While Sean Marks does not have a draft pick to work with, the Nets GM does have a track record of identifying talent. Bruce Brown is set to get paid, and depending on the price tag could find himself doing so in a new city. Could Aminu Muhammed be a young replacement prospect? While Patty Mills is a fan favorite, the veteran guard could look to strike a better value on the open market. Regardless if the he returns on the $6.2m player option, names like Alondes Williams and Tevin Brown should be seen as potential young talents to give Brooklyn much needed length in the back court. Young talent is the cost effective way to create depth and development for the future, something Brooklyn were once known to do, and should continue this offseason. Learn more about your ad choices.

Kevin Durant turned things on in this one, dropping 39 points on 13-31 shooting, but they weren't able to get enough out of the rest of the squad and Boston was able to stave off a late-game charge by Brooklyn.
