33-year-old Durant stated he does not have faith in the team's direction, according to the same source.

Over a month ago Durant requested a trade and doesn't seem to have changed his mind since. The Nets superstar and Tsai spoke in London on Saturday. It's been a year since Durant agreed to a four-year, $198 million contract extension with the Nets.

Another superstar of the Nets, Kyrie Irving, who also wanted to leave the franchise, ultimately opted into his $36.5 million player option for next season, committing to the Nets for one more year.

12-time All-Star Durant, last season averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in 55 regular-season games, but the Nets were swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
