Kevin Durant’s days in Brooklyn appear to be over.
On Thursday, it was reported that the superstar wanted out of Brooklyn and formally requested to be traded. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Nets are working with Durant on finding a suitable trade destination for the longtime star.
“Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks is working with Kevin Durant and his business manager Rich Kleiman on finding a trade for the franchise star, Kleiman tells ESPN,” Wojnarowski reports.
It’s a shocking move after guard Kyrie Irving opted into his contract with the Nets for the 2022-23 season just a few days ago.
Soon after the news, it was revealed that Durant had the Phoenix Suns as his top destination.
“Kevin Durant is going to try to force himself to Phoenix.”
The Suns aren’t the only team as the Miami Heat would also love to have the superstar as well.
Durant, who is one of the best players in the league, will likely be on a new team to start the 2022-23 season.
The 12-time All-Star averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game last season for Brooklyn.
He is a two-time NBA Finals MVP and won the league’s MVP award in the 2013-14 season.
