Where will Kevin Durant end up before the start of next season?
While Durant has the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat atop his list of preferred teams, he could very well end up on an unlikely team that nobody is thinking of.
Mike Singer of The Athletic has an idea after connecting the dots and seeing the recent moves from the Denver Nuggets that saw them sign former Nets DeAndre Jordan and Bruce Brown.
“I don’t really subscribe to conspiracy theories, but the #Nuggets have now landed one of KD’s mentees (Watson), one of his best friends (DeAndre), another former teammate (Brown) & already had one of his friends (Jeff Green) on the team. And that’s before you get to the 2x MVP,” Singer said.
Durant left the Warriors in 2019 after his third season with the franchise in which he appeared unhappy with his place on the team throughout that final season. Durant chose to team up with Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets but has requested a trade after his second healthy season with the team.
On Saturday, Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant sent out a tweet that has gone viral on Twitter.
Durant: “The ones who were locked in that gym with me know what it is, they know what I’m about. If u haven’t been in there with me, ask around.”
Durant and the Nets had a tough season as they had been predicted to be one of the teams playing for an NBA Championship, but they got swept in the first round by the Boston Celtics.
