Earlier this week, ESPN's Brian Windhorst hinted that Kevin Durant's situation with the Brooklyn Nets was unresolved. Well, he was right. 

On Thursday, Durant officially requested a trade from the Nets. The front office is expected to work with him to find a deal that benefits both parties.

During a recent appearance on ESPN Radio, Windhorst shared his thoughts on what's next for Durant. He thinks we'll see the two-time Finals MVP join one of the top teams in the Western Conference.

Phoenix was listed as one of Durant's preferred landing spots. He's also interested in potentially joining the Miami Heat. 

If Durant gets traded to the Suns, it'll be interesting to see what gets sent back to the Nets in return. 

The Suns have a plethora of intriguing players they could move in order to acquire Durant, such as Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson. They could even move Deandre Ayton in a sign-and-trade scenario.

Do you think Durant will end up in Phoenix for the 2022-23 season?
