Sean Marks: Mikal Bridges didn't ask for trade

0 8
Many came from the trade of Bridges, who Marks insisted never asked to leave. “It’s been reported that Mikal wanted to leave or requested a trade. That could not be further from the truth,” Marks said. “That’s just not in Mikal’s character. That’s not who he is, and that definitely did not happen. He was told by me when I called him and let him know that we’re at the 2-yard line.” The Nets got the Bridges trade across the goal line.

Sean Marks said the Knicks package was by far the best to set up the Nets moving forward:
