ESPN's Kendrick Perkins shared a bold theory about Kevin Durant and the situation going on with the Brooklyn Nets.   

Kendrick Perkins Said :- It makes zero sense to me that he wants to be traded at this point.

Kendrick Perkins Said :- I think Kevin Durant is doing this to help Kyrie Irving have leverage to get him signed long-term with the Brooklyn Nets."

A few days ago Adrian Wojnaroski reported that Durant made a trade request directly to Joe Tsai the owner of the Nets.

Durant and the Nets got swept in the first-round of the NBA Playoffs by the Boston Celtics

which was a major disappointment considering they had been expected to compete for a title.   

Prior to the Nets, Durant played for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors. 

The 33-year-old is a two-time NBA Champion, two-time NBA Finals MVP and won the 2014 NBA MVP Award.
