Right before the NBA offseason began, the media came out with a bombshell, stating that Kevin Durant was looking to be traded from the Brooklyn Nets.
This was shocking, especially knowing that Durant still has four years left on his contract in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, things just haven’t worked out for the Nets recently. Durant was recovering from injury while Kyrie Irving refused to get vaccinated and couldn’t play in home games. Former Nets star, James Harden, was so fed up with everything that he asked to leave at the trade deadline and ended up in Philadelphia for Ben Simmons and other assets. The Nets look really good on paper with Irving, Durant, and Simmons on the squad. But those three haven’t played a single game together. Now, it might never happen.
Once teams heard the news that Durant wanted out, dozens of offers were being sent to the Nets to review. No offer has been very appealing to the Nets. Reports are stating that their asking price is high. But in reality, the asking price should be high. Durant has plenty of years left on his contract and is an MVP and NBA Champion in his prime. Where do the oddsmakers have Durant going if he doesn’t stay with the Nets?

Kevin Durant Next Team Favorite
Celtics -175 (Bet $175 to win $100)
The Celtics have an implied probability of 63.6% that Kevin Durant will be a Boston Celtic if he changes teams. The Celtics were reportedly aggressive in their pursuit of Durant a couple of weeks ago. Some reports acknowledged that Jaylen Brown was a part of the Celtics trade package proposal. However, other media outlets are reporting that Brown was never a part of a proposal to the Celtics. If we’re being honest, there’s no chance Durant goes to the Celtics without Brown being a part of this package. This could just be the Celtics trying to keep Brown happy. They won’t want Brown thinking they were shopping him after he helped them make it to the NBA Finals in their most recent season.

The Nets want high-quality talent and multiple first-round picks. No team has offered anything close to what the Nets want. However, there aren’t many teams like the Celtics who can legitimately offer enough to the Celtics to bring in Durant. Sure, Boston is hesitant. But the Celtics really do have the pieces to get a trade done, as long as a trade is centered around Brown. If the Celtics are not willing to give up Brown, trade talk with the Celtics will go nowhere. The most recent report of a trade proposal for Durant was from the Celtics with Brown, Derrick White, and a first-round pick. But now we don’t even know if that was ever really on the table. The Celtics would be one of the only teams to get a deal done with the Nets. But the Celtics likely aren’t willing to give up the package that the Nets are after. Eventually, Durant might just have to settle in with Brooklyn and play out a season with Irving and Simmons. If things go well, the Nets will be in a great position and won’t have to worry about trading Durant. If Durant decides that he won’t play with the Nets, even if he’s on their roster, then the Nets will just have to get the best package that they can and bite the bullet. We’ll see how badly Durant wants out of Brooklyn. Because there’s a very high likelihood that he stays put in Brooklyn to start the next season.
