I worry about JJ sacrificing this season for his big moves. What moves has JJ passed on this summer for KD? What moves would he pass on now for holding off until January? Perhaps he’s trying to solve for needing a number 2 guy next to booker for now and the next trade deadline.

Let's ask Flex!
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. I'd be dominAyton if the WNBA would let me in. - Ayton

Never thought I would do this considering how much I dislike the guy, but Flex reported long before anyone else that KD wanted to come to Phoenix to play with Book and Chris. He was right on that.

You just have to know to ignore 85% of what he says, because he seems to only have very limited sources (or source?) and it is only from the side of the player/agent. He has not sources inside the Suns FO or the Nets FO.

Still haven't heard that directly from KD so I'm not sure how accurate he was. Anyone have quotes or anything from the actual Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant isn’t going to come out and say anything like that. But Chris Haynes was the first national guy to report the trade request and he mentioned Phoenix as the sole team that was at the top of KD’s wish list. It wasn’t until later that the media included Miami on his wish list.

I guess he's not coming then? Ah well. Here's to more internal development.

Durant is a phenomenal basketball player. But when he says mindbogglingly stupid shit like this, it makes me question whether he is actually a player you want on your roster.

I’m not really sure what’s wrong with what he said.
