KEVIN DURANT has sent shockwaves through the NBA by asking from New York.
The 33-year-old forward is reportedly looking to step away from the Brooklyn Nets this offseason.
The Nets will reportedly trade away their star forward.
And that’s despite Kyrie Irving signing up for another season at the Barclays Center.
Here are some potential landing spots for two-time champion Durant next season.
Kevin Durant has reportedly listed the Phoenix Suns as a preferred travel destination.
The Suns ended last season with the best record in the Western Conference.
And they were No. 2 in the playoffs the year before.
But they’ve come up short two years in a row and Durant could be the last play they need.
He would team up with Chris Paul and Devin Booker to form another “super team.”
The Miami Heat are one of the leading contenders with sports betting to land KD.
They took first place in the Eastern Conference that year.
But the Florida team is a superstar away from going the extra mile and returning to the NBA Finals.
And Durant would make them instant favorites if he took his talent to South Beach.
Kevin Durant owns an LA estate – a $15 million mansion in Hidden Hills.
He already enjoys spending time there and it would be an easy transition.
The Clippers could also rip up the script as their team, led by Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, hasn’t delivered in recent years.
Durant might also fancy an LA rivalry with LeBron James.
New York Knicks
This one is easy because Durant wouldn’t even have to move.
If the 33-year-old wants to stay in the Big Apple, then the Knicks are a great fit.
And he would be a legend too if he could flip the famous franchise and make them competitive again.
KD is still signed in Brooklyn, so there’s always a chance he’ll wear their uniform until he leaves.
For that, Durant would have to side with Kyrie Irving.
But with Kyrie committed to New York, Durant could end up changing his mind.
