I mean the Nets could trade him to the Pistons for 8 1st rounders, but it'd be buyer beware for Detroit in case KD then decided to pull a Ben Simmons.It's pretty crazy how the NBA is all run by the players now. The Nets have him under contract but have no choice but the trade, but also only trade him to where he wants to go, so you get what you get in return.

But this is why it's getting more and more difficult for small market franchises to be successful really.
Spurs haven't been aby good for about a decade unfortunately.San Antonio is a very small market team that is one of the premier franchises of the 21st century
Milwaukee are arguably a small market team too, Memphis as well
I would argue small market teams are getting their house in order, compare that to the Knicks (the most valuable sporting team in all of US sports according to Forbes) who have been a joke for years.

The Bucks are a bit of an exception mainly because Giannis agreed to stay.
I guess that's the thing, if you have a superstar and you're a small market, can you convince him to stay after that 1st max contract.
No chance. KD will only go somewhere he can compete to win a championship. With Barnes and Siakam going the other way KD is not winning a championship with VanVleeet and what, Gary Trent Jr, Achiuwa, OG?Woj is mentioning Toronto as a sleeper for KD.
Scottie Barnes, Siakam and a bunch of 1sts would be a decent offer.
