It was revealed that another team – the Memphis Grizzlies – had made “new inquiries” to land Durant.
We don’t know the chance of Memphis getting their wish but we do know that the hunt for Durant is still apparently alive and well throughout the league.
Memphis has made 'new inquiries' to the Nets in trading for Kevin Durant, per @ShamsCharania

As with anything related to Durant and his future in the league, people were very intrigued by this news.
Some fans of both the Grizzlies and Nets were elated by this news – others were not.
This summer has seen a lot of opinions about Durant pop off online and today brought a whole new set of them.
The story about the Grizzlies is just the latest related to Durant.
But there have now been so many that each of them loses importance, at least according to some.
These KD rumours are so useless, every team in the league has made an offer because who wouldn't want Kevin Durant on their team

“These KD rumours are so useless, every team in the league has made an offer because who wouldn’t want Kevin Durant on their team” said Saru on Twitter.
That is a very fair point: Durant is such a superstar that almost every team is going to take a run at landing him.
“The Philadelphia 76ers expressed recent interest in Durant while the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets also inquired with the Nets in late June and early July to gauge the price tag, according to sources.” https://t.co/8Um0jugZNI

Case in point: today’s reporting also revealed that the Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Denver Nuggets also kicked around offers for Durant earlier in the summer.

While all of this speculation has reigned, some Brooklyn fans are hoping that Durant just sticks around in New York and attempts to have a successful season – and then say goodbye if things don’t work out.
"The Grizzlies will not include Jackson or Bane in a potential offer for Durant, sources said, but rather a package built around their bevy of draft picks." Desmond Bane's really gonna be the hold up in a KD trade?? https://t.co/qX2LBslaj9

Meanwhile, one Grizzlies fan grew upset at the idea of Desmond Bane throwing a monkey wrench in the reality of Durant on Memphis.
All in all, a lot of people are thinking many things about Durant possibly playing for the Grizzlies.
But like all the rumors that have come before, these thoughts won’t make any trade a reality.
