Warriors Not Among Teams Pursuing Trade For Kevin Durant

Despite some reports to the contrary, the reigning champion Warriors are not among those seriously inquiring about a potential Kevin Durant trade with the Nets, per Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.Kevin Durant

Durant requested a trade earlier this month, and several insiders suggested a reunion with the Warriors could be a possibility. But after winning another title without him, the Warriors are likely just fine as is — and likely wouldn’t want to gut the team to offer the Nets the package they seek.

Durant bolted the Warriors for the Nets in 2019 after two titles and three straight trips to the Finals. Meanwhile, he has not gotten past the second round of the playoffs in Brooklyn.

Of course, there remains no shortage of interest in Durant, as the Heat are said to be in heavy pursuit. Others are at least exploring deals, it seems, and there is always a chance Durant could just reconsider and return to the Nets.

But whatever happens next with Durant, don’t expect the Warriors to be involved.
