As the Brooklyn Nets face pressure to not hire Ime Udoka as head coach, NBA teams are reportedly gearing up to determine if Brooklyn’s drama will lead to a Kevin Durant trade in the coming weeks.

The Nets are at a crisis point early in the season, sitting closer to the bottom of the NBA standings with Kyrie Irving suspended indefinitely, Ben Simmons struggling and an interim coach at the helm. Once viewed as a contender for the NBA Finals, Brooklyn has quickly become one of the most disappointing NBA teams this season.

While the organization believes that Udoka is the right coach to turn things around, pressure from around the league might effectively force them to keep Jacque Vaughn as interim coach. Meanwhile, Irving needs to meet six specific requirements before he is allowed to play again.

With the early success of the Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, Brooklyn’s chances of competing with the best teams in the Eastern Conference are slim. While the front office is maintaining its focus on winning right now, NBA teams are already lining up to make another run at a Durant trade.
