The biggest NBA news everyone's been waiting for is Kevin Durant's next destination.

The Brooklyn Nets star requested a trade last weekend.

Almost immediately, the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat were named as potential suitors.

Other teams are also mentioned, and at least one Denver Nuggets beat writer thinks the team he covers might be fishing for a run in the KD.

The Athletic's Mike Singer sums up the points of Denver's recent move--

Signing former Nets DeAndre Jordan and Bruce Brown - and thinking they're paving the way for Durant.

"I don't *really* subscribe to conspiracy theories, but the #nuggets have now come down on one of KD's advisors (Watson),

One of his best friends (DeAndre), another former teammate (Brown) and a friend of his already (Jeff Green) were on the team.

And that's before you reach 2x MVP," Singer said.

This is an interesting, if not somewhat far-fetched theory.  It definitely got the fans talking.

The new NBA league year opened last week, and as of now, Durant is still a member of the Nets.

When it is disposed of, it is expected that Brooklyn will get the bulk of the property back.

They'll need them when they try to rebuild.
