Everybody knows once a Superstar asks to be traded they usually are. Sounds like KD never had any intention of suiting up for them again. Once he said fire Nash/Marks he solidified that.
You’re not getting what I’m saying. But that’s ok.

Jureki just tweeted KD has landed in Phoenix tonight. He can’t meet with suns team officials, but he can meet with players.

this may not be over.

I read this earlier, but I thought people were joking around.

Who the hell willingly comes to Scottsdale in August… for vacation?!

Dagnabit… don’t want to get sucked into this circus again!
I am in my pool all summer. Although I was just in Scottsdale for an event a couple weeks ago.

I've got a fake BoSa near me. I don't get how they pull it off but there are a few fake BoSas out there, I guess the original didn't trademark the name before the copycats showed up.

They are saying this morning it's not Suns related, or it would be tampering. The deal would have to be approved by the league first. However, he is allowed to hang out with players. Just nobody from the Suns organization. We don't want to be in the same boat as the Knicks.

P.S. Maybe looking for a house? Sending a message that this is where he wants to play? It's odd. How funny would it be though if he publicly announced the purchase of a house here in the valley to further sabotage the Nets outrageous asking price?!

Scottsdale has a great nightlife, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Anyway, it should be a plus no matter the reason.

Filiberto's has a tradition with Suns players.

Its time to move on. It doesn’t seem like anything will happen. Who did we miss out while trying to get this done? Seems like we wasted time.
I liked Malcolm Brogdon. Always wanted the Suns to go after him but the Boston got him. He would been nice replacement when CP3 retires.

This is what I was referring too. NBA Executives think KD's actions could lower the asking price.

"There is a growing belief among rival teams that Durant knew when he issued that me-or-them ultimatum that Tsai had no intention of yielding to the request and firing Marks and Nash. One resultant theory that the Durant/Tsai meeting spawned is the idea KD has begun trying to manufacture as much behind-the-scenes discord as he can in hopes that it will lead the Nets to lower their asking price and trade him out of exasperation."

Seems pretty obvious, no?

yeah, right, Nets. Tatum and Brown. i'm really beginning to hate them -- and understand their role in the team's dysfunction
In fairness to the Nets, they traded Tatum and Brown to Boston for washed up Kevin Garnett so they obviously don't value those two as highly as the rest of the league :)

Since the story is already out there, Flex from Jersey says he has been told Kevin Durant is not currently in Phoenix although he was planning a visit but plans changed.

Mike Jurecki on the radio already confirmed KD wasn’t in Phoenix and was in Los Angeles. He responded to Flex saying it again on Twitter. Also, Gambo said he “could be” not that he was in town and already reported it had nothing to do with the Suns.
