The overall opinion was that 29 other NBA teams should be interested in obtaining one of the best scorers in NBA history when Kevin Durant asked the Brooklyn Nets for a trade last week. Durant is receiving criticism from all sides from the critics, who still hold his disloyalty against him, while the whole NBA is in shock at his request for a trade. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson are said to have recently spoken with their former teammate about a potential reunion, and the defending champs are reported to be interested in luring Durant to The Bay.
On Monday, Draymond Green’s mother, an unexpected ally, criticised Warriors supporters and others in the NBA for having doubts about their organization signing the 34-year-old former MVP. The Warriors, along with “half the league,” have shown interest in Durant, according to Marc J. Spears’ story from Sunday, which was based on various sources.
The Kevin Durant saga at Brooklyn coming to an end?
Since neither the player nor the Brooklyn Nets have expressed much desire in keeping their cooperation going, Kevin Durant‘s departure from the franchise appears to be inevitable. However, given that he has a 4-year deal, KD’s desire for a trade put the rest of the NBA on notice, and practically every team is now trying to figure out how to get him.
It has been suggested that the Golden State Warriors, the franchise with which Durant won two titles and two MVP awards in the Finals, are interested in signing him back. The Warriors’ younger stars Jonathan Kuminga, Jordan Poole, James Wiseman, and Andrew Wiggins were included in NBA Insider Marc Spears’ package for KD, which will disappoint the Warrior fans.
People who are familiar with Durant point to two main causes: the Nets’ difficult season, which ended in a first-round playoff sweep, and the team’s declining relationship with his close friend Irving. It was anticipated that he and Kyrie Irving would become a devastating one-two punch for Brooklyn. Instead, they hardly ever played together at all, and by the time the game was through, it seemed as though their bond may have deteriorated. Throughout their time with the Nets, Durant and Irving combined for just 58 of 247 games The two were only on the court together occasionally due to their injuries and Irving’s unwillingness to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

It’s reasonable to think Ms. Green is also bothered about stars who are restricted by long-term contracts pushing their way to desired locations. The question of whether Golden State has the resources necessary to make a serious offer for Durant is less certain. Babers Green posted a tweet assisting Durant in his decision and stating that a player should go play wherever he wants.
No matter where Durant goes, his next stop may tip the delicate balance of power in the NBA. He would restore the Warriors’ dynastic reputation in Golden State.
He would assist them in getting closer to winning that coveted title in Phoenix or Miami. In either case, Durant is a talent who everyone should admire, and there is no doubt that a number of teams are actively fighting for his talents.
