3:04 PM PT -- We spoke to former NBA All-Star Cedric Ceballos ... and let's just say the ex-Suns guard star wholeheartedly believes Phoenix can win an NBA title this season!
Kyrie Irving isn't the only superstar getting shipped out of Brooklyn -- the Nets just are now trading Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns in a blockbuster deal, according to multiple reports.
The shocking news just broke minutes ago ... with Shams Charania reporting the Suns will send Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks and more draft compensation to the Nets in exchange for the 13-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion and T.J. Warren.
The deal comes just days after Kyrie Irving requested a trade of his own ... which resulted in a transaction with the Dallas Mavericks.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Nets will receive the Suns' unprotected picks in 2023, 2025, 2027 and 2029. Woj also reports new Suns owner Mat Ishbia pushed to have the deal done Wednesday night.
This will be KD's fourth franchise -- after playing for the Sonics/Thunder, Warriors and Nets.
The Nets are now without their Big 3 of Durant, Irving and James Harden, who was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers last season. The trio played just 16 total games together before disbanding.
