This KD and Kyrie situation is why buyouts often backfire.
OKC would be the perfect trade destination if they still had Kembaís contract to trade
I donít think that really makes sense for them. Sga is probably ready to be in playoffs, but rest of roster is very raw. Durant and sga or irving and sga doesnít really make them a contender. If Durant was 4 years younger they would probably accelerate the rebuild and trade their young guys for picks. But doesnít make tons of sense right now to me. Portland on the other hand with lillard, grant, Durant, hart and a few vets Would make for an interest team.
OKC has 17 1st round picks in the next 5 years. They have players like Moody, Holmgren, Mann, Poker, etc. The Thunder could trade 8 1st round picks, Moody, Poku, and Sengun, for Durant, and then flip Holmgren for a veteran. Giving the Thunder, Durant, SGA, and Vet as a nice trio with still having a ton of draft capital to make other moves.
I don't think it is realistic from either way, but it would go a long way to repairing Durant's image to go "home" and would give the Nets a lot of draft capital to reboot.
