Clippers to trade Blake Griffin for Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant is the hottest player in the 2016 free agent market with National Basketball Association rumors confirmed that he will listen to other teams' offers this summer and will host them in his home in Los Angeles.

Rumors and speculations are now swirling around the Los Angeles Clippers who are reportedly trading Blake Griffin for Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder via a sign-and-trade deal.

Aside from the Knicks, the San Antonio Spurs and the Warriors are regarded as likely options for Durant, as per ESPN.

Following the Finals loss, the Golden State Warriors have been discussed as a possible ladding for All-Star Forward, Kevin Durant.

Earlier this year, league sources spoken to by The Vertical also indicated that the Warriors were the favorites to sign Durant, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if such a signing was made this summer. Will the Warriors pull Kevin Durant in?
