Per Caesars: Among all NBA title bets placed today at Caesars Sportsbook, a seismic 77% of the total number of tickets and 94% of the total dollars wagered are on the Nets: down to 30-1 from 50-1 amid report KD-Kyrie could somehow possibly stay – 9:04 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Something I’m unclear on with the Durant trade request. It’s because of how the Nets treated Kyrie Irving? Like, he’s so close with Kyrie and back him and didn’t like how the Nets treated/handled Kyrie? – 7:24 PM

Durant and Irving situations being the obvious exceptions, I don’t think there’s much more to do. There’s little in the way of malcontents, bad deals, obvious rotation holes, etc. We might get Tobias/John Collins deals in the aftermath, but I don’t see anything seismic coming in. – 6:47 PM

Say you’re the Raptors and you can get Durant by trading two of FVV/Siakam/Anunoby (with picks and such). Which of the three would you want to keep?
Siakam is the best player. FVV has the most complementary skill set. OG is the youngest, cheapest and has the most room to grow. – 6:34 PM

Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The addition of Roby also gives the Spurs a full boat of 15 contracts (I am assuming Gallinari is waived soon).
Their boucoups salary cap space remains a prime dumping ground for teams hoping to clear salary for, let’s say, Kevin Durant and/or Kyrie Irving. – 5:47 PM
Alex Kennedy @AlexKennedyNBA
Last time TJ Warren was healthy, he averaged 19.8 PPG and shot 57.5% on 2s and 40.3% on 3s. Since 2010, only 6 others have done that: Steph Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, KAT, MPJ and John Collins.

If the Raptors traded Scottie for KD and won a title but Scottie went on to become a multi-time All-NBA player would it have been worth it? – 2:36 PM

Let’s say the Nets decide to keep KD into the season…
Does Phoenix bring back Ayton in anticipation of another chance at trading for Durant? They can’t risk the asset if Durant is still on the table right? – 2:12 PM

The more I’ve thought about it, the more convinced I’ve become that unless the Pelicans get involved, the Raptors have the best trade package for Kevin Durant whether or not Scottie Barnes is involved. They’re just deeper than anyone in terms of really good and underpaid assets. – 7:42 AM

Kevin Durant trade rumors: Warriors stars discussing possibility of reunion, but deal is unlikely, per report

More on this storyline

Broussard spoke on FOX Sports 1’s “First Things First” about the possibility of Kevin Durant being traded to the Raptors. He said he does not think Durant would want to play in Toronto because there is too much racism in the city. Broussard mentioned how the Raptors have struggled to retain star players and said playing in Toronto is “a different situation than African Americans are used to being in.” Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who played for the Raptors during the 2019-20 season, strongly disagrees. He tweeted on Tuesday that he felt nothing but love from the people of Toronto while he was there. -via Larry Brown Sports / July 5, 2022
