Kevin Durant update

Kevin Durant

Recently The possibility of NBA superstar Kevin Durant being traded has shaken up the NBA in cause a lot of controversies and creating the spread of rumors. Kevin Durant discussed with the majority owner of the New York Nets Joe Tsai and requested a trade from the organization after 3 seasons. These have been the chaotic three seasons for the two-time NBA champion with a potential big three in Brooklyn being dismantled and a world-stopping pandemic creating difficulties and hurdles for the Brooklyn Nets.

Just last season the Brooklyn Nets were top runners for an NBA championship with a playoff loss to the Milwaukee Bucks decided on a last-second shot by Kevin Durant the organization has seemingly been in the rebuilding process. After the trade of James Harden to the 76ers, the New York Nets were left with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to carry the load in the rebuilding process. Kyrie Irving has recently secured his 2022 to 2023 season by using his player option committed to a $30+ million contract. The Brooklyn Nets were on pace to return to the playoffs and make an impact. With the addition of Ben Simmons to the Brooklyn Nets, the future big three of Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons will never come to fruition as Durant is leaving the net.

Landing Spots

As reported two top destinations for Kevin Durant throughout this trade process would be the Phoenix Suns and The Miami heat. These two organizations have been to the playoffs consistently in recent seasons with the Phoenix Suns coming up short to the Milwaukee Bucks just a year ago. The addition of Kevin Durant to either organization will mean an immediate boost in offensive capability and raises the overall team’s performance. The acquisition of Kevin Durant would be major granted the return would be a potential NBA championship for any organization. Seeing the team up of Jimmy Butler and Bam in Miami would be an interesting dynamic as the Miami Heat are notably known for being the most hard-working team in the NBA. The leadership of Chris Paul and the offensive capability of Devin Booker and youth on the Phoenix Suns roster. Kevin Durant would be the catalyst to a championship maybe the only chance Chris Paul has left to secure an NBA championship as a player in his final seasons.

Potential Championship Contenders

If Kevin Durant were to possibly go to either Phoenix Suns or the Miami Heat both these organizations will compete with the Golden State Warriors as they are the current raining NBA champions and I have set a president in the NBA for offensive capability and dominance. The Golden State Warriors have created a championship culture and have demonstrated it time and time again. Unlike many players, Kim Durant does have some leverage in the situation of being a superstar player, but the Brooklyn Nets don’t have to trade him where he requests to be trade, so I’m interested to see how the situation resolves.
