While the world slept the NBA was making plays and headline news. Star forward and future NBA hall of famer, Kevin Durant has been traded to the Phoenix Suns.
The mega trade ultimately ends the rollercoaster the Nets were on since acquiring Durant and Kyrie. Now, the this move would put the Suns in the driver spot in Vegas to win the NBA Finals.
With Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and Kevin Durant, it will be very difficult to see any other team matching up in the NBA playoffs. All of the moves come just hours before the trade deadline.
As for the Nets, the franchise is clearly looking to rebuild with the additional draft picks. Finally, one must ask what were the Lakers and the rest of the NBA doing to let this trade happen.
