Adrian Wojnarowski Delivers Bad News About Kevin Durant Getting Traded This Summer: "Brooklyn Simply Doesn't Have A Deal That's Good Enough To Justify Trading Kevin Durant With 4 Years Left On His Contract."

Kevin Durant is the most-wanted player available on the trade market this offseason. While the asking price is incredibly high, teams have been trying everything in their power to try and make something work with Brooklyn for a possible deal. Sadly, no team has enough to match Brooklyn's high asking price.

People have started expecting KD's trade saga to go on for a while, with many going saying that KD will start the season in a Brooklyn jersey.

Adrian Wojnarowski seems to confirm those reports by revealing that no team has been able to find an avenue to satisfy what Brooklyn wants in exchange for Kevin Durant with four years left on his contract. 

"Brooklyn simply doesn't have a deal out there that's good enough to justify trading Kevin Durant with four years left on his contract, really at the apex of his talent. They continue to talk to teams around the league but simply, no ones meeting that threshold. Ultimately, teams like Miami and Phoenix that have been motivated to find deals for Kevin Durant, they've got to go out in the marketplace and see if they can add teams and assets, different players potentially who might help meet that threshold with Brooklyn.

"Obviously, there are limitations with Miami because of the contract Bam Adebayo has, Ben Simmons and he can't be on the same roster together. It limits the structure of a transaction, so we still have a couple of months left in the offseason before training camp. But right now, there is simply no deal out there for Brooklyn."

Whichever team acquires, KD will instantly become favorites ahead of the 2022-23 season, so there is good reason for teams to go out of their way to try and acquire him.

Hopefully, we see him moved sooner rather than later, as it doesn't look like KD is as committed to winning in Brooklyn as he was in 2019 when he joined the team or even last year when he signed a contract extension.
