This Nets-Pelicans Trade Features Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets, New Orleans Pelicans, NBA trade rumors
NBA Analysis Network

For diehard fans of basketball, a player’s career doesn’t begin once they enter the NBA. Those fans have been familiar with the league’s top players since they were in high school. 

As a result, expectations for those players are also set early. Sometimes, the results can be unfair. If a player doesn’t live up to expectations, isn’t that our fault for expecting more than they’re capable of giving? 

For example, look at Zion Williamson. He was an extremely anticipated prospect. Meanwhile, though he’s been productive at the NBA level, a series of injuries have kept him from reaching his full potential. 

On the other hand, it’s fair to say that Kevin Durant has exceeded expectations in his career.

Could those two players join forces as Pelicans this season?
