It has been weeks since Kevin Durant demanded a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. After a string of disappointing results and an embarrassing first-round loss with the team, it’s comprehensible why the 2-time Finals MVP wants out of Brooklyn.
Like every want away star, KD has also been linked to multiple teams ever since his trade request became public. Be it a move to the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns, or the Miami Heat, multiple suitors have emerged for the Nets superstar. Among the many potential suitors, there may be his former team and recently crowned champions, the Golden State Warriors.
On condition that KD wants a trade to a championship-caliber team, it’s comprehensible that the Warriors are also a reputation within the potential suitors list. One among the potential trade packages which have been prevalent for the Durant trade is a package centered around Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, together with multiple picks.
Although Wiggins and Poole aren’t anywhere near the extent of superstardom of Durant, each the players have proven that they’re dependable players within the postseason and may step in each offensively and defensively. While a trade package containing the 2 might entice many, it looks as if the Nets aren’t as high on the thought. In a recent appearance in his podcast The Lowe Post, ESPN’s Zach Lowe claimed the Nets aren’t that all for the probable trade the Warriors might put up.
“The intel I even have is that the Nets aren’t super high on Wiggins or Poole as type of centerpiece players. Then you definitely get to the opposite guys who’re relatively unproven within the NBA. So I do not know if there ever really was a deal there that the Nets would have done. Obviously, you’ve gotten to explore it if you happen to’re the Warriors.”
While it’s comprehensible why the Nets may not fancy a trade package around Wiggins or Poole, the Warriors may not have another player to present up for a Durant trade. Although their fabled trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green are aging, they still are the championship core for this team. On condition that the Nets may not fancy Wiggins or Poole, KD’s potential move to the Warriors seems quite unlikely.
