NBA free agency hasn’t started yet, but things are heating up.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported on June 30 that Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. The news comes just days after Kyrie Irving opted into the final year of his contract with the Nets.


According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nets’ general manager, Sean Marks, is working with Durant and his business manager Rich Kleiman on finding a trade.

The Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat have been listed as two preferred trade destinations for Durant. If traded to the Suns, he’ll team up with Chris Paul and Devin Booker, and if it’s the Heat, he’ll be teaming up with Jimmy Butler.


It was suspected that the Nets would run it back with their two cornerstone players next season after Irving decided to stay, but it looks like Durant has other plans.
