On Friday, the NBA was rocked when Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn Nets guard, requested a trade due to a standstill in contract talks.

This news came as a shock to many, including teammate Kevin Durant, who was reportedly surprised by the situation.

The sudden departure of Irving raises questions about Durant's future with the Nets, as it's difficult to imagine the veteran forward staying if Irving leaves.

Despite Durant being injured, the Nets are still third in the East with a 31-20 record, largely due to Irving's outstanding performance.

The trade deadline is just six days away and it remains to be seen what will happen with both Irving and Durant.

Teams are reportedly more interested in seeing if Durant will also ask for a trade, as he is known for his scoring abilities and low drama.
