The Brooklyn Nets have set a high price for Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant won’t be traded so easily by the Brooklyn Nets. His preferred destinations were the Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat. The Suns’ package wasn’t considered to be enough by the Brooklyn Nets. With DeAndre Ayton supposedly going to the Indiana Pacers, the chances of the franchise getting Kevin Durant have become lower.

The Miami Heat will probably have to give up Bam Adebayo and other noted players to get Durant. The Toronto Raptors too were named among those teams but they won’t give away Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes. There was word of the Golden State Warriors being interested, but there hasn’t been any confirmation of that yet. The Warriors had won two successive NBA titles with Durant.
