On June 30th it was reported that Durant requested a trade and doesn't seem to have changed his mind since.

Iguodala gave his perspective on Durant's situation on the Point Forward podcast, naming the reasons why the two-time NBA champion Durant, who won both titles together with Iguodala on the Warriors, should stay in Brooklyn.

"I think he should stay in Brooklyn, it's such a big market, it's good for the game and just figure out how to make it work like everybody grow up and make it work. That's how I feel about the situation," Iguodala shared his perspective.

Another reason why Durant should stay according to Iguodala is the length of the contract the 12-time NBA All-Star Durant is still on with the Nets.

"This is a situation where it's either, look, man just come out here and play or don't play because you got 4 years, we got you for a while so it's not like you're on an expiring contract and then you can just take off a year and we just give up a year," added Iguodala.

6-time All-NBA first-team selection Durant still has a 4-year $192.4 million contract, which runs after the 2025-26 season. Last season, he averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in 55 regular-season games.
