All the drama that Kyrie Irving has been causing within the Brooklyn Nets has now led to rumors about a possible exit for Kevin Durant as well. There is some belief that if his buddy leaves, KD will end up jumping ship, too. Teams from all over the NBA have been put on high alert with regard to these rumblings, and one of them appears to be the Phoenix Suns.
While a KD-to-Phoenix trade deal hasn't exactly been the stuff of headlines of late, there have been some whispers of Durant linking up with Devin Booker and Chris Paul in Arizona. Mikal Bridges has all of a sudden emerged as a possible sacrificial lamb in a potential trade with the Nets, and the All-Defense wing could not help but respond to these trade rumors:

Bridges decided to make use of just one emoji to respond to a fan saying that he's going to be missed in Phoenix, which is in reference to a potential move away from the Suns. The 25-year-old used the eyes emoji in his tweet as if to say that he's watching the situation closely.
Durant is without a doubt one of the top players in the NBA today and the Suns –or any other team, for that matter — will need to dig deep into their pool of assets in order to lure him to their city. For Phoenix, it's obviously going to take much more than just Mikal Bridges to land the former league MVP.
