Should Warriors Gamble on Trading for Kevin Durant

KD Reunion

Kevin Durant has requested a trade from the Nets. His old team, the Warriors, have emerged as a potential landing spot.


Adding Durant would make the Warriors a juggernaut. Steph, Klay and KD were unstoppable together. 

The Risks

Trading for Durant would likely mean giving up Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole or other key pieces.

Roster Balance

The Warriors have a balanced roster right now. Trading for KD would shake things up significantly.

Contract Concerns

At 34, Durant's age and 4-year contract are worries. KD's health is also often a question mark.

Lockeroom Fit

Durant's relationships with Draymond and others were strained during his first Warriors stint.

Championship Pedigree  

Still, it's hard to pass on adding one of the most talented scorers ever and a proven champion.
