Suns acquire Kevin Durant from Nets in deadline deal

The Phoenix Suns are acquiring forwards Kevin Durant (knee) and T.J. Warren from the Brooklyn Nets for forwards Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks, and a 2028 pick swap.

What It Means:

Less than a week after sending Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks, the Nets decided to deal Durant out of town as well. He's still sidelined with a knee injury, but when Durant does make his Suns debut, it will likely result in reduced usage for Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and Deandre Ayton. In Brooklyn, Durant's departure means Cam Thomas should continue to be the team's top scorer for the rest of the season. Spencer Dinwiddie will also likely have more ball-handling opportunities.

KD is averaging 49.2 FanDuel points in 36.0 minutes per game this season. His usage rate (31.6%) is tied for 11th in the league and sits just behind new teammate Devin Booker (31.7%).
