Is Kevin Durant Set To Make A Huge Career Change?

It may not always be easy to understand Kevin Durant's choices. From minor things like Durant's hobby that you might not know about that has nothing to do with sports, to major things like his decision to criticize a 13-year-old on Twitter. As for his career as a professional basketball player in the NBA, his choices may be led by the fact that he has an ultimate goal in mind.

"I want to be the greatest," Durant said in October 2013 while opening up about his career to The Oklahoman (via Bleacher Report). "I want to be remembered as one of the greatest. When they redo that top 50 players (of all time), I want to be a part of that." In order to make that dream a reality, Durant needs to not only dominate on the court, but also be with a winning team and be surrounded by the right teammates.

That may be why he's played for three teams over the years, according to the NBA. He was first picked up by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 before the team turned into the Oklahoma City Thunder, and has since played for both the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets. That willingness to play for the ideal team — or the desire to add more money to his already impressive fortune — is also perhaps why there's major speculation he's making a major change to his career.

Kevin Durant reportedly wants to leave the Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Durant is supposedly on the lookout for a new team. The NBA player has asked the Brooklyn Nets to let him go after being with the franchise for just three years, according to the New York Post. While the Nets' general manager Sean Marks is apparently on board with the trade, he seemingly won't allow the move to go ahead until he gets something — or rather, someone — worthwhile in return. That means it's unclear where Durant will go and when that might happen.

Of course, that hasn't stopped people from having a say when it comes to what team Durant might end up with this time around. While some basketball lovers are mentioning the Chicago Bulls and someone else joked about the possibility of him heading back to the Oklahoma City Thunder, reporter Chris Haynes apparently had an inside scoop, tweeting, "Kevin Durant has the Phoenix Suns listed as a preferred trade destination, league sources tell @YahooSports."

While Durant is likely to keep quiet about the subject until a potential deal is done, we'll just have to wait and see if he turns up in a Bulls jersey, a Suns jersey, or something totally unexpected.
