Golden State Warriors join Kevin Durant sweepstakes, could offer former No. 1 pick and young superstar in exchange


Three seasons after leaving the Golden State Warriors to play alongside Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, Kevin Durant is on the transfer once more. This time, he’s requesting a surprising commerce, with the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns as his most popular locations.

KD nonetheless has 4 years left on his contract on high of his all-time nice abilities, which makes him the most popular commodity in the marketplace. He’ll instantly make any group a title contender or, within the case of the Warriors, overwhelming favorites to repeat.

Regardless of Miami and Phoenix being on the high of Durant’s listing, the Bay Space group may swoop in with an attractive supply.

Marc J. Spears on ESPN Radio provided an intriguing tackle the newest Kevin Durant buzz:

“It’s no shock to me that Warriors have curiosity in Kevin Durant, in keeping with sources. So does greater than half the league. It’s Kevin Durant.

“You higher make the decision if you happen to’re an NBA GM. It’s Kevin Durant.”

It’s no shock to me that Warriors have curiosity in Kevin Durant, in keeping with sources. So does extra greater than half the league. It’s KEVIN DURANT. You higher make the decision if you happen to’re an NBA GM. It’s KEVIN DURANT.

Ought to the Golden State Warriors do greater than carry out due diligence, they may supply an attractive bundle that would sway the Brooklyn Nets. To pry him out of Brooklyn, the Warriors may supply Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga and James Wiseman.

After Rudy Gobert’s commerce to the Minnesota Timberwolves, although, the Warriors should cough up greater than that. A commerce will solely occur if there are draft picks hooked up to these names.

“If the Jazz are going to get what it quantities to 5 firsts [round picks] for [Rudy] Gobert, what on earth are the Nets going to have the ability to get for Kevin Durant?”— Marc Stein

If the Bay Space group needs to stamp undisputed dominance over the league like they did a couple of years in the past, they may go this route. Getting Durant would nearly assure they may win (if all gamers are wholesome) the following 4 NBA championships.

It’s most unlikely, nevertheless, that Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers will do it. What they’ve happening in San Francisco is one thing particular.

With out KD, they may nonetheless win extra championships as they’ve rising blue-chip expertise who might help Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Inexperienced.

I simply requested Corridor of Famer @Rick24Barry what his ideas are on the @warriors pursuing KD and he likes the long run outlook with the younger gamers and might’t fathom bringing KD again thus breaking apart the chemistry that exists now. He suppose the Dubs could be loopy to make that deal.…

The Warriors are constructed to win now and sooner or later. They’ll possible keep put and defend the title with their present group.

The Kevin Durant sweepstakes may drag on for weeks

The Brooklyn Nets will not move Durant for nothing short of a "historic haul."
The Brooklyn Nets is not going to transfer Durant for nothing in need of a “historic haul.”

The Rudy Gobert commerce may have screwed up how groups had been planning on buying Kevin Durant. Utah acquired a truckful of belongings for the three-time Defensive Participant of the 12 months and four-time All-NBA group selectee.

Minnesota despatched Malik Beasley, Patrick Beverley, Jarred Vanderbilt, Leandro Bolmaro, Walker Kessler and 4 first-round picks to the Jazz. Nearly as good and achieved as Gobert is, he’s method under the caliber and accomplishments of Durant.

If the Nets commerce Kevin Durant, a celebrity in his prime on a four-year deal, they reportedly need a “historic haul” in return

The Brooklyn Nets will count on nothing lower than what the Timberwolves gave up for the Frenchman.

A number of groups could need to be artistic to get the commerce carried out. What the Miami Warmth and Phoenix Suns can supply appears to be like method in need of what the Nets are on the lookout for. Brooklyn will take its time and play hardball in commerce talks.

“Phoenix is the place he wants to go, I feel reasonably confident of that. I think Miami is second. What I’m not confident over is that Phoenix is going to be able to give Brooklyn what they want.” – ESPN’s Brian Windhorst (h/t @RealGM )

The KD sweepstakes may go on for weeks till the Nets are happy with what they are going to be getting to maneuver Durant.
