Funny how just days after Kyrie Irving announces his return to the Nets in 2022/23, Kevin Durant requests a trade. I’m sure those two aren’t connected at all.

Reports began filing in of Durant’s displeasure with the team on Thursday, and he has confirmed those suspicions with a nice trade request, slapped right on Steve Nash’s desk. 

League sources have proclaimed that the Phoenix Suns are the preferred trade destination for the 12x All-Star. If Durant’s wishes are granted, he will be playing alongside Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, and Chris Paul (granted none of them are involved in the trade).

This would immediately make the Suns the heavy favorite to win the 2022/23 NBA Finals, which is something you can start betting on now thanks to these Pennsylvania Online Casinos.

Durant first joined the Nets via a sign-and-trade deal in the summer of 2019. The big three of him, Irving, and Harden were expected to win a handful of championships–in reality, the three only played at the same time less than 25 times. 

While this certainly does bog the Nets down, they are by no means out of the race. In addition to whatever they are able to land for Durant, they will have Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons left to steer the ship.

Two of the most controversial guards in the game on one team–what could go wrong?
