That’s the whole list.

When KD announced 6 years ago that he was leaving OKC, some said it could end the small market franchise.
OKC has had 4 playoff teams, 6 All-Star selections, and 1 MVP since then.
After 2 years without a playoff, OKC now has one of the NBA’s best young cores and most draft picks in NBA history. – 1:51 p.m

Stephen Bondi @SBondyNYDN

There’s one thing that doesn’t get mentioned enough about Kevin Durant – the Nets have influence. You don’t have to trade it. Could Durant hold out and refuse to play like Simmons? Secure. But I don’t see that in the twilight of its prime. Even if he did, Nets were under no obligation to treat him preseason – 10:11 a.m

Good morning everyone, unless you’re being condescending about a Kevin Durant trade anyway.

There is a Kevin Durant situation that needs to be resolved.
There is a situation with Deandre Ayton that needs to be resolved.
And the rebuilt, flexible Rockets might have a solution – but not in the way you might think.

Should be the perfect precursor to your barbecues & pyrotechnics of today. – 7:22 a.m


Chris Palmer @Chris PalmerNBA

Forget Kiri. Kevin Durant for Anthony Davis is the trade that makes the most sense for the Lakers. Discharge Davis before he becomes untradeable. KD turns an underdog into a champion and fully redeems himself. – 12:52 a.m


Chris Palmer @Chris PalmerNBA

Kevin Durant to the Warriors makes no sense for either side. Not for the future of the Warriors. Not for the legacy of KD. – 12:12 a.m


JakeMadison @NOLAJake

I was sick of everyone talking to each other about acting hypothetically for Kevin Durant, so I tried to stay off Twitter. I like the last few days the least about this job. And we should rejoice in Zion!
Related, Game Night is an underrated movie. – 11:47 p.m


David Hardisty @clutch fans

Woj says Brooklyn has “no traction” on a deal for KD or Kyrie. They’re patient because they “don’t have to act either,” even though that’s not their ideal scenario. Nets are trying to get the “biggest amount of assets they can” and “there’s a lot more talks to come.” – 11:16 p.m


Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1

Just so much: in case Kevin Durant and the Warriors are interested in each other, the players got back together and agreed to him a full playoff share… – 10:23 p.m


Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS

A thought I just had. We say:
– The Raptors get Kevin Durant.
– The Lakers get Kyrie Irving.
– The Raptors win the East and the Lakers win the West.
Kyrie would not be able to play road games in the finals due to Canada’s vaccination mandate. – 10:07 p.m

More on this plot

With Kevin Durant having four years left on his contract and Kyrie Irving opting into the final year of his contract, the Nets have leverage and intent to use it. And league staff say the Nets have hinted this could drag on into training camp if they don’t get what they want. – via New York Post / July 4, 2022 Nets general manager Sean Marks and owner Joe Tsai had agreed to work with Durant and business partner Rich Kleiman to try to get him to one of his favorite landing spots. But in the end, Durant and Irving are expected to be reassigned where and when works best for Nets management. -via New York Post / July 4, 2022 Ralph Mason: Jake Fischer: I don’t think Toronto would include Scottie Barnes in a trade with Kevin Durant -above Twitter / July 4, 2022
