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.
