Boston Celtics Involved in Talks With Brooklyn Nets to Acquire Superstar Kevin Durant
The Boston Celtics are currently looking to acquire superstar Kevin Durant as they engage in talks with the Brooklyn Nets on the possibility of pulling this off.
It would be recalled that 33-year-old Durant had asked the Boston Nets to trade him to another team about a month ago.
“As Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant’s trade request approaches its fourth week, the Boston Celtics have emerged among teams engaged in talks on a possible deal,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said in a tweet.
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics aren’t alone in their quest to sign Durant as the Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, and Toronto Raptors all have thie rsights set on acquiring the 12-time All-Star.
However, it is Celtics who have been in “regular contact” with the Nets, according to Wojnarowski.
Boston offered a Jaylen Brown package to the Nets for Durant, but Brooklyn turned down the offer and countered, Sharms Charania of The Athletic reported.
Durant won two championships with the Golden State Warriors in 2017 and 2018 and has averaged 27.2 points per game over the course of his 14-year career.
