Kevin Durant only wants to play for Heat if Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry remain there, per report

As the Brooklyn Nets attempt to trade Kevin Durant for something resembling fair value

He has offered two teams, the Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns, as preferred destinations.

Here's where things get complicated:

Durant reportedly only wants to go to the Heat if most of their team is kept intact.

According to The Athletic, Durant would only want to play for the Heat if he could do

so alongside Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry.

We can safely say that Butler was never on the table. 

Lowry is valuable to a contender only. So if Adebayo isn't available either, what could Miami offer?

27 overall pick Nikola Jovic along with three future first-rounders and three first-round pick swaps. 

That's a huge offer for almost anybody, but it's not going to be enough to land Durant.

Here's another complication: Even if the Heat and Durant were open 

to a deal involving Adebayo, he legally can't be traded to the Nets right now.

Overall, this puts the Heat at a significant disadvantage in the Durant sweepstakes. 

The Suns would have to give up quite a bit to get Durant as well

but if they could do so without sacrificing Devin Booker or Chris Paul

they'd likely still have enough to entice the former MVP.

For now, we're so early in the process that saying anything definitively would be foolish.
