Daryl Morey commented on Kevin Durant to the 76ers rumors at Philadelphia Eagles practice over the weekend
Daryl Morey attended Philadelphia Eagles practice over the weekend and briefly spoke with reporters about a variety of things, most notably, the fact that Kevin Durant wants to be traded out of Brooklyn and listed Philadelphia as a preferred destination.
Durant and Harden are still close and continue to pop up all over the world together on social media. Over the past few weeks, Kevin Durant and James Harden have been spending a ton of time together. We have seen the duo in London at a Travis Scott concert and working out in Barcelona.
That brings us back to Eagles practice, where Morey quickly commented on the Kevin Durant trade rumors.
Daryl Morey on Kevin Durant Trade Rumors
Honestly, I like “no comment” more than anything else besides a “yes we are trying to land Kevin Durant.”
James Harden is ELITE at getting himself off of teams and places that he doesn’t want to be and the fact that Durant has been so close to him over the summer makes me think that Durant is taking a few plays from the Harden playbook and trying to force himself to Philadelphia.
I know there’s A LOT of you on social media that shed tears over the thought of losing a young, star player like Tyrese Maxey. Unfortunately, that’s the price you pay to land one of the greatest players of all time that’s literally a walking bucket and will give you 30 points per game in his sleep.
I’m sorry Tyrese Maxey. I really am. You shouldn’t be the one who has to go in this entire mess but the city of Philadelphia will thank you after the 76ers win two or three championships over the next five years. You’ll be invited back to the parade and can celebrate with us. Tobias Harris can come as well.
The sicker part of me would love to see a starting lineup in Brooklyn of all ex-Sixers players. Imagine a lineup with Maxey, Simmons, Curry, Harris, and whoever they want to run out there at center while Philadelphia is sporting a starting five of James Harden, DeAnthony Melton, Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, and PJ Tucker.
God that would be so sad yet so damn funny at the same time.
