Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the organization ahead of free agency this year, and it’s sending shockwaves throughout the NBA world. Durant’s preferred destinations according to multiple media reports are the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat. Here’s a look at the odds for Durant’s next team courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
It’s easy to see why the Suns and Heat are the top of this list as they’ve been named by Durant as his preferred spots. The Los Angeles Clippers are in the mix, although the salary math will be tough to figure out given how LA’s money is tied up in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Portland Trail Blazers are high on the list due to Damian Lillard’s Instragram post. The Memphis Grizzlies are also in the top 5, although they’re technically tied with the Blazers and Nets at +1000.
