After news of the Irving saga’s merciful end (at least with the Nets) finally coming to a close, all attention shifted to Kevin Durant, who some believe (hope?) could be the next superstar to ask for a trade.

Now, that’s purely speculative, as Durant has given zero indication he wants out since the latest Irving debacle, but it certainly seems possible Durant could request a move considering he’s done it before and he’s now the only star remaining with the Nets.

It certainly hasn’t helped seeing Ben Simmons’ decline this season, who Durant is reportedly less than thrilled with:

Yet whether or not Durant wants to remain in Brooklyn with Irving – the only other star on the roster – out of town is unclear. Ben Simmons has missed the last four games with left knee soreness, but sources familiar with Durant’s thinking tell the Daily News the star forward has been less than enthralled with Simmons, who is averaging just 7.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and six assists per game on a max contract in Brooklyn.

On top of that, word came out that the Phoenix Suns, a well-known Durant suitor over the summer, is prepared to go after the former league MVP again:

We’ll see where this one goes, but until Durant comes out and says he’s happy to stay in Brooklyn, speculation about his future will only continue to grow.
