Kevin Durant’s request to be traded rocked the NBA community as a whole. It is anticipated that a team will need to make the largest offer in NBA history in order to acquire KD. It is one of the key causes for the lack of a definite favorite to get KD.

Durant still has four years left on the Nets’ maximum contract, but he wants to move on from the organization. The way the Nets handled KD’s close friend Kyrie Irving undoubtedly had a significant impact.
