The Kevin Durant sweepstakes is still going on as the Brooklyn Nets continue to field offers for the future Hall of Famer. KD recently sat down with Nets own Joe Tsai and doubled down on his trade request by giving Tsai an ultimatum - either KD leaves or head coach Steve Nash and GM Sean Marks are gone.
Tsai later tweeted his support for both the head coach and general manager effectively letting everyone around the league know that KD will no longer be with the team in the near future. On the heels of that news, the Philadelphia 76ers have emerged as a potential landing spot for KD and would see him teamed with James Harden for the third time.
"As of earlier this week, there were high-ranking members of the Sixers who've felt strongly about engaging with Brooklyn on a Durant trade," Ian Begley of SNY reported. The deal would "almost certainly" include a packaged centered around Tyrese Maxey with Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle rounding out the deal.
It was also reported that Durant would be interested in joining the Boston Celtics if Boston is able to broker a deal that would keep Marcus Smart on the team.
