Net counteroffers Celtics’ Jaylen brown blockbuster trade offer to Kevin Durant
Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets, has been linked to the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors as well as the Golden State Warriors. The Suns’ matching of Deandre Ayton’s offer sheet will likely keep them out. Durant is not expected to be landed by the Lakers, and and are not expected to be drafted by the Dubs. The Heat and Raptors remain in the KD sweepstakes but they are not expected to land Durant. However, the Boston Celtics are now well-established in the Durant chase. And Shams Charania from The Athletic reports that Boston made a stunning offer to the Nets star.
According to reports, the Celtics offered Jaylen brown, Derrick White and a draft pick to Kevin Durant. Charania said that the Nets asked Boston to include Marcus Smart as part of a deal along with Jaylen Brown, Derrick White and draft picks. Brooklyn is also interested in one more position player. Jayson Tatum is not allowed according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Trade rumors have been dominating this offseason, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant leading the charge. Durant is still the most sought-after player on the trade block. Durant is undoubtedly the best player in the NBA right now. Durant could be a major asset to a franchise.
Last season, the Celtics made it to the NBA Finals but lost to the Golden State Warriors. Jaylen Brown trading would be a bad idea. The Celtics would consider trading Jaylen Brown if they could land Kevin Durant. Jayson Tatum and KD would make a formidable duo in Boston.
The Celtics are a serious contender for Durant’s landing. It will change the dynamics of the league regardless of where Kevin Durant ends.
