Suns’ forward Kevin Durant posted an interesting Instagram story today of him listening to some music.

It must be Drake many would think, as he was featured on the credits for the rapper’s new album. However, it was former Hornets’ forward Kai Jones.

A series of concerning social media posts by Jones led to the Hornets saying they would trade him, and eventually the team released him two days ago.

Jones released a song in the midst of his social media posts, which Durant is listening to below. The two both played at Texas for the Longhorns, Durant way back in 2006-07, and Jones from 2019-2021.

Jones ended up being selected 19th overall by Charlotte in 2021. He has had some highlight-worthy plays throughout his time with the Hornets and in the G-League, but his offseason posts have been very troubling.

Could Durant be recruiting Jones to come play for the Suns? Phoenix does have one two-way spot available.
