Nets Initially Asked Celtics For Both Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum In Kevin Durant Trade

The Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics have reportedly engaged in trade talks involving Kevin Durant. How far those talks have gone remains a subject of some debate.

In their initial trade conversation, the Nets reportedly asked the Celtics to trade both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum in a deal for Durant. Boston was obviously not interested in trading both Brown and Tatum for Durant.

It doesn’t sound like things got much further when Brooklyn asked for a package of Brown, Marcus Smart, other role players and draft picks. Boston reportedly made it clear they weren’t willing to meet that sort of asking price for Durant.

A source says there has not been any real traction on a trade to this point.
