Durant requests trade from Nets, reportedly prefers Suns, Heat
Nets general manager Sean Marks is working with Durant and manager Rich Kleiman on finding a suitor for the franchise star, Wojnarowski reports.
Durant listed the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat as potential trade destinations, though the Nets will prioritize moving the 33-year-old to a team that can offer the best assets in return, according to Wojnarowski.
More than half the teams in the NBA have called the Nets about acquiring Durant, Wojnarowski reports.
The Nets are not expected to move Ben Simmons, according to The Athletic's Sam Amick. Brooklyn acquired the 25-year-old, as well as Seth Curry and Andre Drummond, from the Philadelphia 76ers for James Harden.
The forward has four years left on his deal worth $194 million, according to Spotrac.
Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists, and a block in 55 games with the Nets last season. The Nets were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics.
