Kevin Durant trade rumors: Ranking all 29 teams as possible destinations for the former MVP
Durant is weighing his future as Kyrie Irving continues to attempt to negotiate an extension with the Nets
The trade market for superstars tends to be fairly small. They often use their status
A true bidding war through the entire NBA for a single star is exceedingly rarer.
But that's what Kevin Durant is. On the court, he was malleable enough to join a 73-win team without missing a beat.

If he hits the open market, almost anybody could try to trade for him.
So let's take a look at his market through that lens.
which teams are the most and least likely to land the two-time Finals MVP?

Durant probably isn't especially interested in playing for these teams either, but he's enough of a hoops junkie to at least respect the talent.

These teams are positioned to contend a few years from now. No need to rock the boat for Durant now.
