Kevin Durant wanted Raiders to trade Antonio Brown to Washington


Kevin Durant was hoping another superstar would follow his lead by leaving Oakland for the East Coast.

In the wake of all the drama unfolding between the Raiders and Antonio Brown, the former Warriors forward thought the wide receiver might end up getting traded to his favorite NFL team in Washington.

"I thought we was going to get AB these last couple of days," Durant told YouTube user See Hendo during a live stream interview on Friday. "So I was like, 'Man, hey if y'all don't want him, Oakland, come and send him down.'"

The Raiders trading Brown seems like a worst-cast scenario for coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock, but after everything that's unfolded this week, nothing should seem unrealistic.

The saga between Brown and the Raiders took 10 different twists and turns on Friday.

The day started with Brown reportedly offering an emotional apology to his teammates during a meeting. That led to Gruden announcing that Brown wouldn't be suspended and that he would play against the Denver Broncos in Monday night's season opener. 

We thought everything had been put to bed. But then in the evening, ESPN's Ed Werder reported that the Raiders were fining Brown for his behavior directed at Mayock on Wednesday.

About an hour later, Brown posted a two-minute video on his YouTube channel which featured a recorded phone conversation with Gruden.

Who knows what will come next in this crazy story, but we find it hard to believe that Gruden would trade his best player to his brother, Jay.

Sorry, KD. You can go back to recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Brooklyn.
