The Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat were the two teams initially reported to be on the wish list of Kevin Durant as he seeks a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. Those two teams might be more motivated than most to offer a strong package for Durant given his preference to end up there, but other teams might be able to assemble a more attractive package and convince Durant to happily play there.
"I think a team that's lurking and is going to lurk in this is Toronto," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "They have all the kinds of pieces that you would want and their picks to do a deal for Kevin Durant. And they have an organization, a leader in Masai Ujiri, who certainly... you saw the chance he took on Kawhi Leonard with one year left on his deal...
"How far are the Raptors willing to go in an offer to Brooklyn? Would they offer Scottie Barnes? I think that's a player that Toronto, under almost any circumstances, would not like to part with, but having him on their roster... Pascal Siakam, all the other talented players, contracts that might match up.
"I think you keep watching Toronto to see how involved they might get for Kevin Durant."
