The Brooklyn Nets continue to explore the possibility of trading their franchise cornerstone Kevin Durant. Of course, the star has four years remaining on his contract in Brooklyn, and the team doesn’t want to move him but is looking to honor his request to be dealt.

I think he is going to have a big year next year. I don’t know if that is going to lead to a title, but I think he is going to be in the MVP discussion.” 

Murdock’s co-host, former NBA player Raja Bell commented that Durant is in the MVP conversation a lot and Murdock clarified by saying,
