    Default Celtics Considered 'Unofficial Front-Runner' For Kevin Durant



    The Boston Celtics appear to be the "unofficial front-runner" for a potential trade with the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant, according to executives that have spoken with Sam Amick of The Athletic.

    The Celtics have made Jaylen Brown the centerpiece of their offer for Durant. Brown is clearly the second best player on the Celtics and has made an All-Star Game.

    The Nets are using the presence of Brown in trade talks as a baseline in negotations with other teams, sources tell Amick. The messaging from Brooklyn is that they're not interested in discussing deals with teams unless at least their second best player is included.

    Brooklyn had reportedly hoped to keep Durant if trade offers from teams didn't improve, but his meeting with Joe Tsai has signaled that he will continue to agitate for a trade and is not interested in remaining with the franchise.

    Durant is the biggest biatch in the NBA and it's not even close. His legacy is forever tarnished, this would solidify it.

    Blowing up a team that would have won the finals if Tatum didnít poop his pants for a 34 year old who hasnít played a full season since 2019 (and even then he promptly tore his Achilles in the playoffs). Seems smart.

    Let Durant rot in Brooklyn.

    Same with Simmons and Kyrie.

    Who wants these troublemakers.

    How are they going to keep those three while beating the allegedly rejected Celtics package based on Jaylen Brown?

    I dont really love the fit of Tatum and Durant tbh, even tho it looks amazing on paper... both are too soft as competitors. Tho I guess with guys like Smart and Horford around theyll still have enough leadership.

    But Id be worried as Boston about the idea of having both of your best players being such tame, receding types in the face of adversity.

    I know it worked with KD and Curry, but that was a unique situation with unparalleled talent on the roster. Boston doesnt have that level of advantage over the rest of the league.
