Kevin Durant trade request timeline: Superstar scorer returns to Nets

Kevin Durant made a trade request to the Brooklyn Nets on June 30 to officially enter the trade market for one of the greatest players in NBA history. Durant is about to start a new four-year extension that will pay him $194 million during the deal.

Durant reportedly has two teams on his list of preferred destinations: the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns. In last year’s playoffs, each team earned the top seed in their respective divisions but failed to advance to the NBA Finals.

Durant has now waived his trade request. He will return to the Brooklyn Nets to start the season.

Rumors that Durant could leave the Nets started when the team refused to offer Kyrie Irving the long-term max contract he was looking for. Instead, Irving opted for the final year of a $36 million deal with Brooklyn. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Durant asked the Nets to make a trade because they would not give Irving the contract he was seeking.

The Nets were the overwhelming favorites to the championship last season. Then Irving was out for most of a year after refusing a Covid-19 vaccine, James Harden asked for a trade and was sent to the Philadelphia 76ers, Joe Harris suffered a season-ending injury, and the Nets – Duran Ter and Irving on the floor – swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round.

Brooklyn basically owes all future draft picks to the Houston Rockets, don’t expect the Nets to be in this deal because of the original Harden trade Seek a full rebuild.

We are following every Durant trade rumor in this article until he is eventually traded. You can bet on his next destination on DraftKings Sportsbook in AZ, CO, IL, LA, NH, ON, OR, WV and WY.

More info from Windhorst:

” The Nets are really being offered by what they have and if some of the trade offers presented to me are real, I agree with them.

Kevin Durant just wants to be in Butler, Playing for the Heat with Adebayo and Lowry still in place

From Athlete:

As for the possibility of Miami also seems to be in play, I’m told there are significant hurdles on that front. It looks like Durant just wants to play with a Heat team that includes Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry. So, even if the Heat were willing to trade Butler to meet the Nets’ (understandably expensive) demands, doing so would leave Durant unhappy from the start.
