If Durant is smart, he should go to the Brooklyn Nets. Here is why.....
1.) The Nets are already a playoff team, as shown being the 6th seed this year. If KD went to the Knicks instead, he probably have to carry a rebuilding team and may miss the playoffs (similar to how LeBron joined the Lakers this year).
2.) He has a better chance of reaching the Finals, as the Eastern Conference is less competitive.
3.) Durant will have talent around him, by playing along side potential young stars Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen; Spencer Dinwiddie; Joe Harris; and already All-Star in D’Angelo Russell. KD would be seen as the leader of that team.
4.) Nets play in a system that fits KD skill set perfectly. Brooklyn has an uptempo offense that takes the fifth-most threes per game and relies heavily on the pick-and-roll. They are also third in the NBA in percentage of made unassisted threes, which caters to KD who feeds off pull-up threes in transition.
5.) Nets have a solid front office and a head coach Kenny Atkinson, who has gotten the team to improve in each of his first 3 years.
6.) Brooklyn is still a large market and also has great media coverage.
7.) Nets have the cap space to pay KD a max deal
