The Minnesota Timberwolves would also have to send four draft picks for the Brooklyn star.
Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and four draft picks for Kevin Durant? This would be the offer the Minnesota Timberwolves would have received when questioning the Brooklyn Nets about their disgruntled superstar.
According to a report by Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo! Sports, the Nets would have contacted the Timberwolves to tell them to receive the pair of stars from the Minnesota team.
According to information from Adrian Wojnarowski, Durant would have requested a change to the management of the Brooklyn Nets last June, and it is speculated that it would have been due to the instability of the franchise.
According to the same report, the Minnesota Timberwolves would have rejected the offer for Durant. The Timberwolves have just finalized a contract extension with Towns, and although the parties did not reveal the details, ESPN’s Woj revealed that it would be a 4-year, $224 million contract extension.
In Edwards’ case, he has two more seasons remaining on his current contract that are team options totaling more than $24 million.
Minnesota has made some roster moves, in which they acquired Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert.

The Timberwolves announced the acquisition of Gobert at a news conference in Minneapolis last Wednesday, when the trade they agreed to with the Utah Jazz last week could finally become official.
It took four players, five first-round picks, including one made last month and the option to trade another pick to get the French center to Minnesota, and the Timberwolves still feel they got the best of the deal.
The TWolves sent to Utah Patrick Beverley, Malik Beasley, Jarred Vandervilt, Leandro Bolmaro and the rights to newly drafted Walker Kessler, players the Nets might see as filler in a hypothetical trade for Durant.
Reports indicate that the Nets would be looking for at least one superstar and several draft picks in a trade for Kevin Durant, while a report by Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports notes that Durant has isolated himself from any contact since he requested a trade to the team.
