Kevin Durant broke his silence with a cryptic message on Twitter Saturday, just days after reports speculated that the NBA star had requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets.”The ones who were locked in that gym with me know what it is, they know what I’m about,” Durant wrote. “If u haven’t been in there with me, ask around.” Durant became the center of NBA free agency attention on Thursday when he reportedly requested a trade from the Nets less than a year after signing a contract extension with the team.
