Kevin Durant is weighing in on offers and has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. So far, nothing has advanced although the Golden State Warriors have been mentioned as a potential landing spot.

Given his huge contract, it would take much for the Warriors to reunite with the two-time NBA champion. The other teams that KD is reportedly interested in joining are the Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat, ESPN reported.

Durant’s request is believed to have stemmed from the Brooklyn Nets’ manner of handling the Kyrie Irving situation as well as their poor finish last NBA season.

It was Marc J. Spears who claimed that the Dubs are possibly interesting in reuniting with the 2014 MVP. However, the feasibility of such has been shot down by a new report.

Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic revealed how a reunion between Durant and the resident stars of Golden State would be a possibility. But realistically, the Dubs are unlikely to give up their new cast of younger talent – concerning Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins – just to accommodate the 12-time All-Star.

The Warriors are coming off a successful NBA campaign with their current mix. Although some players like Gary Payton II have left, the chances of seeing other rising stars being sacrificed just to take in Durant do not look promising.

Despite his age, Durant continues to show why he is a dominant force. However, injuries have taken its toll on the two-time NBA Finals MVP and the frequency could increase with each passing year.

There is no doubt that when healthy, Durant can provide the Dubs with a big lift. But with a cast set to defend its NBA title, it may seem a bit odd to change things up if the Warriors are running like a well-oiled machine – even if the player involved is Kevin Durant.
