Making the Mikal Bridges trade happen was historic and incredibly unexpected. No one thought the Nets would ever agree to it.
But in comparison to even that, completing a trade with Danny Ainge for a position of need would be nothing short of a miracle. 😂 – 8:59 AM

Jalen Brunson, Julius Randle and Mikal Bridges will each become extension-eligible over the coming weeks and months.

Noah Clowney on the Mikal Bridges trade:
“It’s an opportunity for me. No shade to him, that’s my dawg, I love him, but to see us going into more of a rebuild, that’s an amazing opportunity for me, and I gotta try to take advantage of that.” pic.twitter.com/Z8Xu4Yssb312:34 PM

Noah Clowney said he was playing pool with his family when he heard about Mikal Bridges being traded.
“I feel like he should be proud…to get traded for 5 first round picks, it’s superstar level things.” (Nets also got a 1st swap) – 12:31 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Noah Clowney said Mikal Bridges should feel “proud” that the Knicks gave up so much to get him. No shade, added that he plans on taking full advantage of the opportunity created by Bridges’ absence. – 12:25 PM

Nets GM Sean Marks denied Mikal Bridges requested a trade to the New York Knicks.
“Mikal didn’t know until I called him. I think it’s been reported that Mikal wanted to leave or request a trade. That could not be further from the truth. That not in his character or who he is.” pic.twitter.com/j5strqcDg612:10 PM

Sean Marks said the Knicks trade came together very quickly and emphasized that Mikal Bridges did not request a trade:
“Mikal didn’t know until I called him… It’s been reported that Mikal wanted to leave or requested a trade, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.” pic.twitter.com/rDaKndA4lO11:39 AM

More on this storyline

Steve Popper: Mikal Bridges on last year’s struggles: “When adversity hits you’ve got to use it. You’ve got to use it as fuel, use it as a learning experience. I think that’s what I’m going to do. I think I’m saying the right things. My mom’s nodding her head. ” Mom says: “I wanted to clap.” -via Twitter @StevePopper / July 9, 2024
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. -via New York Post / July 9, 2024
