Kevin Durant may be looking for more titles elsewhere.

Durant has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, according to a person with direct knowledge of the decision that will no doubt have teams scrambling to put together offers for the perennial All-Star.

ESPN first reported Durant’s trade demand, citing Phoenix and Miami as two of his favorite destinations.
