The Players The Grizzlies Reportedly Won’t Give Up In A Potential Kevin Durant Trade

The Kevin Durant sweepstakes seem to be back on.

Earlier today, Shams Charania reported that the Grizzlies have inquired about the future HOF.

As Charania writes, the Grizzlies could include up to five first-round picks in a package for the two-time Finals MVP (their own 2023, 2025, 2027, and 2029 selections, plus Golden State’s top-four protected 2024 pick).

However, according to Charania, Memphis does not want to part ways with Jaren Jackson Jr. or Desmond Bane.

Doesn’t seem that a trade could happen without adding Jackson or Bane but who knows. We can add the Grizzlies to the list of teams that have already inquired about KD which includes the Pelicans, Hawks, Celtics, and Raptors.

As time goes on, it seems like the most likely thing to happen is KD remaining in Brooklyn for at least this upcoming season. The Nets don’t have any picks until 2029, so it wouldn’t make sense to just suck until then. That’s why they want an All-Star caliber player plus the picks.

KD is over chilling with Big Booty girls. 

Kevin Durant has been spotted in Saint Tropez in the wake of retirement talks. According to Side Action, there is a wild rumor out there that Kevin Durant would choose to retire from the NBA over playing for the Brooklyn Nets again.

Longtime NBA journalist Marc Stein wrote in his SubStack column that “one of the most well-connected team executives” told him that Kevin Durant “was more apt to retire than play again for the Brooklyn Nets.” Durant would later hop on Twitter to shut down the rumors.

“I know most people will believe unnamed sources over me but if it’s anyone out there that’ll listen, I don’t plan on retiring anytime soon. S— is comical at this point,” he tweeted.

It is unclear at this point whether Kevin Durant, who has three years remaining on his current deal, will be traded at all. But in the meantime, Durant doesn’t look too concerned about all the drama swirling back in the states.

Depending on how badly he wants out of Brooklyn, Kevin Durant might be willing to forgo his entire $44.1 million salary this year.

KD has made more than $300 million from his NBA contracts alone, and he’s owed more than $150 million between the 2023-24 and 2025-26 seasons.

This is a good time to place a bet at on the Grizzlies winning the championship. It will change heavily if they get Durant. Use promo code BSO125 for 125% bonus.
