You are missing the point. There were only a few teams that could absorb Ayton's contract at the time. Go back and check. We were tracking the list. That limited the market for Ayton regardless. The point being is that current salaries of teams and where they are determine the market at a given moment. That changes at the end of every season as teams decide their direction. You can't possibly know what the future market is going to look like for every team.Ayton was an RFA, totally different than trading for a player.
Every team in the league could have tried to put together a package for Durant. You're entirely ignoring the WHY when it comes to the Nets not getting offers.
