NBA star Kevin Durant is reportedly frustrated with his current team, the Phoenix Suns, according to a report.  

The Suns are 14-14 heading into the league’s Christmas Day finale against the Dallas Mavericks, a disappointing mark considering the talent on their roster. 

Phoenix’s big three of Durant, Bradley Beal, and Devin Booker have only been on the court together for 24 minutes this season, and that’s the root of Durant’s frustration, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. 

‘They can feel the frustration with Durant,’ Wojnarowski said Monday. ‘Part of that, certainly, is the missed games from Brad Beal. 

‘This team was built around those three stars, the underwhelming supporting cast that comes from those massive trades for Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal that really gutted the organization,’ Wojnarowski continued.

The trades to acquire Durant and Beal from the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards respectively drained the Suns of their depth, forcing the franchise to sign low-level players to fill out their roster.  

Bradley Beal has only played in six games this season with an ankle injury, while Devin Booker has the same injury and has missed nine games. 

Phoenix’s even record has them hovering around the final Play-In spot for the NBA postseason.  

Beal is expected to return from injury soon, while no timetable has been given for Booker’s return to the court.  

The Suns do have three players outside of their big three averaging more than 12 points per game in Eric Gordon, Grayson Allen and Jusuf Nurkic.
