‘The Athletic’ reported on the 9th (Korean time) that the Phoenix Suns acquired Kevin Durant in a trade.
This is shocking news. As Kyrie Irving left the team, there was talk of Kevin Durant’s future, but there were many eyes that the possibility of a transfer this season was not high. However, Durant wore a Phoenix uniform at the point where the trade deadline was less than a day away.
This isn’t the first time Phoenix and Durant have been linked. When Durant requested a transfer last summer, he expressed his desire to play for strong teams like Phoenix and Miami. In fact, Phoenix was considered one of Durant’s potential destinations, but Durant withdrew his trade request and stayed with the team for now.
Phoenix, which entered the season after that, struggled due to bad news due to line injuries of key players, but succeeded in reversing the atmosphere and is on the rise with 9 wins and 2 losses in the last 11 games. Phoenix, which showed its will to strengthen its power, even threw a winning number by signing Durant after new owner Matt Ishbia gave power to the trade.
It is truly an all-in. To bring in Durant and TJ Warren, Phoenix used young, capable wing resources Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson, as well as four first-round picks. In addition, it is known that there is no protection clause in the nomination rights that Phoenix sent to Brooklyn. Even forward Jay Crowder, who had a conflict with the club, was sent to Brooklyn.
If it fails, it is a very large trade that could drastically bleak the future of the club. However, considering Durant’s prowess, which still boasts the highest level in the league, it is also a win enough to walk. With Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Deandre Ayton playing together, Phoenix immediately emerged as a strong contender for the championship. 카지노
However, Phoenix leaked too many wingman resources with this trade, so additional reinforcement is expected. The NBA trade deadline is until dawn on the 10th, Korean time.
