Exclusive: Suggested ‘Earthquake’ Trade Would Send Nets’ Kevin Durant to Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have to make serious changes to avoid another disaster. The team had a terrible season and Rob Pelinka has a few major plans for the offseason. There have been so many rumors about the team and Pelinka’s next move. A crazy offseason move sends Kevin Durant to the Lakers.

Will the Brooklyn Nets star even consider playing with LeBron James?

The Lakers have been linked to the Nets for quite some time. Brooklyn had a Big 3 last season, but things didn’t go the way everyone planned. James Harden is out and Kyrie Irving didn’t play much either. Will KD force his way out of Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant is close to the Lakers

Sean Deveney and a Western Conference general manager discussed the potential trade.

“Going the other way, if Durant wants to go to the Lakers, that gets harder,” the NBA GM told Heavy. “He is signed through (2026) so you’ve got to make a trade and the only thing they can do would be Anthony Davis for KD. I think LeBron feels some responsibility for getting Davis to Los Angeles and he wants that to work, so there’s not much chance they would trade him.

“But if Davis can go play with Kyrie, who he is close with, maybe that changes the math on that. It’s an earthquake kind of trade and it’s a slim chance. But if Durant is really unhappy and they can get everyone on the same page, maybe it works for everyone. Never say never in this league.”

Anthony Davis struggled to stay healthy, but the Lakers never mentioned a trade.

The Nets are in a terrible situation, too. They may lose KD if Irving goes out. Anthony Puccio from Front Office Sports believes that Durant will leave Brooklyn if Irving goes somewhere else.
