On a recent episode of the “Dan Le Batard Show,” Amin Elhassan and Zach Harper discussed the offseason story of Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets. Elhassan theorized that Miami Heat veteran forward Udonis Haslem knew Durant would be staying in Brooklyn before it was announced:
“This statement comes after what? [It comes after] Udonis Haslem announces at his camp that he’s coming back [to the Miami Heat].”
The crew pushed back on this idea, but they all basically agreed that the Heat knew ahead of time that they were out of the running for a possible Durant trade.
Elsewhere in the episode, they talked about whether the Durant saga is actually finally over and the future of Kyrie Irving. They also talked about why “The Boardroom” was partly responsible for the statement.
