So much for a boring Thursday!

A sigh of relief was heard throughout the northeast this week, as Kyrie Irving opted into his player option to stay in Brooklyn.

But will he still be on the roster by the middle of July? Who knows, because breaking news on Thursday revealed that Kevin Durant wants OUT of Brooklyn!

Kevin Durant Trade Rumors: What’s Next?

It could be from “contender” to “pretender” for Brooklyn just less than two months removed from NBA Playoffs, when the Nets were swept by the Boston Celtics. The franchise seems to be in the midst of an implosion and a complete overhaul of the roster while its hands is forced by Durant.

Of course, it’s 2022, and every formidable professional athlete seems to have some kind of leverage where they end up.

Per Woj, via Twitter, “Phoenix and Miami are among two of the teams that Kevin Durant has on his wish list, sources tell ESPN, but the Nets plan to move Durant where they can get the best possible deal. With four years on his contract, there’s no shortage of teams willing to unload assets for Durant.”

In other Nets’ news, nobody seems to care that the they also got fleeced by sending a first-round pick for Utah’s Royce O’Neale earlier on Thursday.

Net’s social media also hyped up Ben Simmons on Thursday, who was traded to Brooklyn just a few shorts months ago in a package for James Harden.

Get your popcorn ready. The landscape of the NBA will likely change, very soon, and the NBA betting odds will be on the move.

In fact, they already are on FanDuel Sportsbook, with the Phoenix Suns as co-favorites to win the next championship.
