The Kevin Durant saga was one of the biggest and wildest stories of the 2022 NBA postseason, with the 2x NBA champion shockingly requesting a trade request from the Brooklyn Nets after three years with the team. The Kyrie Irving situation might have played a role in that decision, but reports suggested that Durant didn't like the direction the team was going. 

After a couple of weeks of trying to find a trade partner for the former Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors superstar, the Nets' front office sat down with KD and they decided to move forward and put this situation past them. 

Several teams were linked with a move for Durant, including the Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Phoenix Suns. Some rumors were bigger than others, and the Suns really sounded like a likely destination for KD, but that never happened.
