Since Kevin Durant announced that he wanted to be traded from the Brooklyn Nets, there have been rumors flying about which teams he may be going to. In the beginning, many thought he would be heading back out West to the Phoenix Suns or even back to the Golden State Warriors, but nothing has happened.

According to Fox Sports’ Chris Broussard, three favorites are out of the Durant sweepstakes: the Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, and the Phoenix Suns are no longer interested.

“We see teams dropping out every day,” Broussard said on First Things First. “Phoenix is out. Miami is out. Toronto is out. What’s the deal to be made? Now, this Boston thing, if they want to give up Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and if I’m the Nets, I’m demanding Robert Williams and three first-round picks. If they want to give up some kind of deal like that, then maybe it happens. But outside of that, where in the world is he going? The likeliest scenario is that KD starts the season in Brooklyn.”

Rumors about a trade to the Celtics circulated late last week but, as with the other rumors, nothing so far has happened. Like Kyrie Irving, it looks like for now, Durant will remain in Brooklyn.
