Report: Kevin Durant sees Philadelphia as 'welcome landing spot'


We have our first official, actual report, trying Kevin Durant to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Durant welcomes Philadelphia as a landing spot and high ranking officials in the Sixers organization have felt strongly about engaging the Nets in a potential trade, according to SNY NBA Insider Ian Begley.

Begley adds the Sixers would almost certainly have to include Tyrese Maxey in a potential deal, which would likely also consist of—at least—Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, and draft picks.

KD, one of the all-time great NBA players, is turning 34-years-old in September, while Maxey—who Philadelphia has fallen in love with—turns just 22 in November.

Begley also adds that while a Durant-James Harden reunion might seem awkward to the public, the two were spending time together recently in London.

There are plenty of rumors when it comes to Durant the Nets floating out there, but it's certainly interesting to the Sixers in the mix.
