A blockbuster trade proposal has the Phoenix Suns shaking up the NBA landscape by dealing franchise star Kevin Durant to a rival Western Conference club.

The Suns acquired Kevin Durant in a blockbuster trade with the Brooklyn Nets last year, hoping that he would be the final piece needed to get them over the championship hump once and for all.

But Phoenix was bounced in round two by the Denver Nuggets last year and got swept by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the opening round last month. With Durant entering his age-36 season in 2024-25, the Suns may feel inclined to trade the future Hall of Famer and get the best possible return.

Bleacher Report’s Andy Bailey proposed a blockbuster three-team deal in which the Suns would trade Durant back to the Golden State Warriors, where KD won two NBA Championships.

Bailey’s proposal has Phoenix receiving Jonathan Kuminga, Kevin Looney, Caleb Houstan, Brandin Podziemski and three first-round picks. The Orlando Magic would get Chris Paul, Gary Payton II and a 2028 second-round pick, while the Dubs would land Kevin Durant and Jett Howard:

“Even the slightly older version of this core would instantly be a nightmare to defend. And though this deal hammers the team’s depth, they’d be an attractive destination for ring-chasing veterans who might be willing to sign for less than they’re worth.

Some combination of Wiggins, Moses Moody and Trayce Jackson-Davis would at least be the start of a potentially solid rotation behind the four stars. Again, this would be a big risk. But the final years of Curry’s prime justifies risks.”
