Considering Kevin Durant’s shocking trade request late last week, today brings another turn in the thrilling adventure that is the Kevin Durant sweepstakes.
Warriors supporters shouldn’t get their confidence back in expectation of Kevin Durant’s return to Oakland next season. The Golden State Warriors may be interested in a shocking return with their former title star.
Thompson revealed that the other three members of Golden State’s former big four would be open to the concept of a Durant reunion. Even if he seemed to dismiss the possibility of Durant going back to the team wherein he won back-to-back titles.
“The Warriors superstars have been in conversations with Durant. In addition to catching up, the Hall of Fame-bound peers did entertain the idea of a reunion.
He further said: “It was mostly about the stunning nature of it even being possible.”
Given that he left them after the Warriors’ defeat in the 2019 NBA Finals to joining Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, his homecoming is a significant development.
Green’s participation in these discussions is especially encouraging given their rocky past together. It includes their now-famous altercation in 2018 that led to KD’s departure and more notably their Twitter argument.
A tweet from Miami Heat star guard Tyler Herro has fueled rumors that he might be engaged in KD trade. Despite questions concerning the Warriors’ intention to match Brooklyn’s high price.
The current sixth-man-of-the-year in the NBA tweeted early today that:
“the way things going only family matters,” leading several NBA analysts to speculate that Herro may be moving soon.
NBA insider suggested Tyler Herro deal must include a three-way trade in order to satisfy Brooklyn’s demand for Durant’s contract.
While the final destination of Durant is still unknown, it is evident that the NBA trade and free agency landscape is being held up as teams from all over the league compete for his services.
