The whole NBA world was shaken when Kevin Durant handed in a trade request to the Brooklyn Nets. Immediately, many teams emerged as potential suitors for KD, but several weeks have passed and he is still with the Nets.

The Nets are asking a lot for the return of Kevin Durant, and not a single team in the NBA is willing to give up that much. The Brooklyn Nets are right in their decision-making because there haven’t been many times in the NBA when a player of KD’s caliber has been available on the market.

Famous Sports Analyst Skip Bayless recently on his show Undisputed talked about why he doesn’t think that the Nets will let go of Durant. Skip said, “I do not believe as I said from day one that KD will be traded because I believe the Nets pretty craftily set an unattainable price on Kevin Durant…”

He added, “It’s pie in the sky, it ain’t happening and this placates Kevin like well we think you’re so valuable that we want the sun and the moon and several stars back…”

Kevin Durant had his destination spots marked already
