A report that Kevin Durant is coming to Phoenix on Thursday renewed speculation about the Phoenix Suns making a possible trade for the Brooklyn Nets and the NBA superstar.

“I hear, and take it for what it’s worth, OK? I hear Kevin Durant is supposed to be in the Valley tonight,” John Gambadoro said Thursday afternoon on the Burns and Gambo Show on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Now, again, it could be for a hundred reasons. He obviously can’t meet with the Suns, he’s under contract with another team. So I’ll say this, I hear he’ll be in the Valley tonight, arriving. , you know, later tonight. But I have no reason why he’s here and I haven’t heard anything about him and the Suns, because obviously he can’t meet with the Suns. … (He) can hang out with the players if they’re here, he can probably go to the gym and play with the guys, but I didn’t hear, ‘Look, something’s going to happen, that’s why he’s coming here.’ I didn’t hear anything, just that he’s coming here.

Durant has been linked to the Suns since he requested a trade earlier this offseason, and Phoenix has been reported as the preferred destination for the forward in a potential trade to Brooklyn.

Talks have cooled since Phoenix matched the Indiana Pacers’ offer sheet for DeAndre Ayton, which would prevent the Suns from trading the center until next year, putting him off the market in any current deal for Durant with the Nets.

Durant told Nets owner Joseph Tsai that rumors and speculation surrounding the star were rekindled after reports earlier this week that coach Steve Nash and GM Sean Marks would have to be fired.

Mike Jurecki, a former Arizona sports radio show host, tweeted Thursday that he had heard Durant was in the Valley and offered some other information.

Jurecki tweeted, “Heard KD landed in Phoenix around 7 p.m. There’s a drive that also provides his security.” “Technically, he can’t meet with the Suns without permission which doesn’t preclude him from talking to Suns players.”

Reports of Durant coming to Phoenix fueled renewed speculation that he might still join the Suns, however a Suns insider later tweeted that Durant was not in Phoenix.
