UPDATE: Well, if you bet on Kevin Durant to get dealt, you can cash your ticket. The Nets have dealt Durant and T.J. Warren to the Phoenix Suns for Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks, and a 2028 pick swap.

The Brooklyn Nets provided the first domino of trade season Sunday when they dealt Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and draft picks. The Nets could also be looking to deal Kevin Durant, who is currently sidelined with a sprained MCL. Durant requested a trade in the offseason but ultimately returned to the Nets. Will he be moving on at the 2023 trade deadline?

NBA Trade Deadline: Kevin Durant odds

Durant is listed at -250 to be traded according to DraftKings Sportsbook, which is interesting because the Nets have said they don’t plan to make him available. The Phoenix Suns are the team to watch out for when it comes to Durant. They’ve been open about wanting to pursue him both in the offseason and ahead of the deadline, and they’ve got the assets to make a move. The Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Pelicans are also worth monitoring here, although the Raptors are far more likely to sell than buy at this deadline.
