After Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Brooklyn and landed in Dallas, Kevin Durant also got traded, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Suns sent Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks, and a 2028 pick swap for Kevin Durant and TJ Warren, with KD wanting the move before the deadline.
As expected, KD’s trade drew a lot of reactions on Twitter.

I asked Kyrie Irving about Kevin Durant’s trade from the Nets to the Suns – “I’m glad he got out of there.”

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were traded on the same day. Kind of funny.

KD and Kyrie left behind 7 total playoff wins, two first round sweeps, a broken Ben Simmons and 15 3 + D wings. Thanks for everything Brooklyn!

Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic in one team means they are winning everything. Can’t say same for KD, CP3 and Booker though

Can’t wait for the three team trade this summer that sends CP3 elsewhere, rotation players to Dallas and Kyrie Irving to Phoenix.
