New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the entire NBA. Back in 2019, he joined forces with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. Overall, this turned out to be a suspect decision as the Nets never had any real sustained success. They were never able to get past the second round of the playoffs, and there was always some sort of drama. Subsequently, Kyrie Irving was traded to the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend. This just added fuel to the fire and made everything infinitely worse. It felt like there was truly no hope for the Nets and it led to conversations between KD and the team's front office.

However, over the last few days, the Nets had been adamant about not trading Kevin Durant. After all, why would they? With KD, they still had a chance at making it to the postseason and doing some damage. Furthermore, he is under contract and the team is well within its rights to keep him. Well, with the trade deadline going down today, the Nets decided to change course in epic fashion. Yes, that's right, they moved Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns are under new ownership, and according to Adrian Wojnarowski, Matt Ishbia was pushing heavily for this move. Additionally, the Suns were willing to give up a whole bunch of assets. These assets include Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crwoder, four first-round picks, and a 2028 pick swap. Needless to say, the Nets are getting a massive haul for their superstar. Moreover, the Suns will also get TJ Warren which helps sweeten the deal a bit. Either way, this is a huge move for both sides, and this definitely makes the Suns the new favorites to win the Western Conference and even the NBA title.

There have been some massive moves in the NBA over the last 24 hours. For instance, Russell Westbrook was traded to the Utah Jazz.
