Well, it officially happened. Amid all the Kyrie Irving drama and with the Brooklyn Nets about two steps from falling off a cliff, Kevin Durant has formally requested a trade, Durant’s manager tells ESPN. Adrian Wojnarowski added that the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat are among Durant’s preferred landing spots. 

Durant is arguably going to be the most high-leverage player to ever be traded in the NBA. He’s going to bring a king’s ransom back to Brooklyn. Which is why the Nets aren’t just going to send him where he wants to go. Durant just signed a four-year extension last summer. He’s under contract through 2026. Brooklyn isn’t backed into a corner here. It’s going to take the best deal it can get.
