Darkhorse has Emerged in the Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

Where will Kevin Durant end up now that he still wants out of Brooklyn?

For a few weeks there, it seemed like Kevin Durant would just end up sticking out things with the Brooklyn Nets, but after his meeting with Nets owner Joe Tsai, it has become clear that the Nets and Durant still want to part ways, which means a trade should be on the horizon, sooner rather than later. Especially considering Durant laid down an ultimatum to the Nets Owner. He wants Nash and the GM out, or he wants out.

According to Kristian Winfield who writes for the New York Daily News, the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, and Miami Heat are the three favorites for KD, although that was already known. Winfield did reveal, however, that the New Orleans Pelicans could be a darkhorse to acquire KD.

According to the report, the Pelicans would make Brandon Ingram the main attraction of the entire deal.

It remains to be seen if the Nets would be interested in that deal, although if a third team comes through, then it could very well work.

But it’s hard to believe the Pelicans would want to trade a much younger Ingram for Durant, who is clearly on the back nine of  his career. The favorites to land Durant are still the Celtics, but you always have to watch out for the Darkhorse.
