The Grizzlies were trying to get in on KD.

Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the entire NBA. Overall, he is one of those players that any franchise would want to have on their team. After all, he is one of the greatest scorers in the history of the game. By the end of his career, there is a good chance that people will see him as a top-10 player. It is a warranted position to be in for KD as he has always brought a lot of fun and intensity to the game of basketball. Subsequently, he will now get to showcase those skills with a new team.

Of course, just a couple of days ago, Durant was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Phoenix Suns. Consequently, many around the league believe that the Suns are the team to beat. After all, they now have players like Deandre Ayton, KD, Chris Paul, and Devin Booker. If you are a team in the Western Conference, you are probably very fearful of the Suns' power right now. Needless to say, it is going to be fun to watch over the coming months.

Kevin Durant Was A Wanted Man

Moreover, it shouldn't have to be said that there were other teams trying to get their hands on Durant. One such team was none other than the Memphis Grizzlies. They are one more star away from domination in the Western Conference. According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Grizzlies are well aware of this. So much so that they were willing to trade every pick and every pick swap in order to ensure KD's arrival in Tennessee. However, they were unable to finalize anything as Durant had his heart set on the Suns.

Durant on the Grizzlies would have been a wild sight to see. Although, we will never know how that could have gone. Unless, of course, KD gets tired of the Suns and demands yet another trade. Either way, this should be a great conclusion to the NBA season. Let us know what you thought of the Suns' trade for KD, in the comments down below.
