Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant is widely regarded as a top-flight player in the NBA alongside other superstars such as Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Tier 1 Superstars are expected to deliver for their teams and so far the Nets experiment has been a failure for Durant. With Durant and Kyrie Irving eliminated in back-to-back playoff appearances before the Eastern Conference Finals, the sustainability of Durant and Kyrie Irving as a superstar duo is in question.

Durant signed a $198 million four-year extension with the Nets last summer that begins next season. But as we’ve seen with superstars like James Harden and Anthony Davis, players can force trades. Despite “HoopsHype” being considered a tier one superstar, a new report ranks the Nets star only 8th in retail value.

“Durant’s age and the Nets’ confusion with their other two All-Stars may make his situation just a touch more open to interpretation than those of the players above,” write the HoopsHype staff. “But assuming Kyrie Irving is a long-term commitment and Ben Simmons is ready to go, Brooklyn probably won’t trade Durant for even the biggest hauls.”

Durant has repeatedly reiterated his loyalty to being with the Nets for the long haul. But after two straight seasons of disappointing post-season eliminations and the fact that he turns 34 in September, he has to think about getting back to the mountaintop. Although multiple reports have confirmed that’s unlikely, if Durant were to request a trade from the Nets to win the two-time Finals MVP, the Phoenix Suns (+1500) are the favorites.

“Nets [forward] Kevin Durant preferred to join Suns if he leaves Brooklyn Notes sports betting odds maker [Bovada]” Brandon, “Scoop B” Robinson by Bally Sports via his Twitter account on May 31st.“According to Bovada: Brooklyn is still the strong -5000 betting favorite to be KD’s team next season. Mavs are second on Bovada’s odds board at +1600.”

Durant has repeatedly proven that he is one of the best players in the NBA, even after coming back from a torn Achilles tendon in the 2019 NBA Finals. While it would be nice to win more championships on top of his triumphant return, the Nets star says it’s not his focus.

“And once I won a championship, I realized that my perspective on this game is really about development. how good can i be It’s not about us getting that championship,” Durant told Rachel Nichols in 2021.

“I appreciate those things and I want to win to experience those things, but it’s not why I play the game.”

Already a champion, Finals MVP, and regular-season MVP, Durant has placed himself in elite company. If he were to retire today, he would most likely be a first-round Hall of Famer.
