As of right now, the Nets seem comfortable with the idea of dragging this situation with Durant out into training camp, which is set to begin late-September, but new details on where trade talks stand are pointing towards the Boston Celtics potentially getting a deal done for the twelve-time All-Star.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Durant has shown no change in his stance of wanting to be traded this offseason and the Boston Celtics recently offered All-Star wing Jaylen Brown in a deal for Kevin Durant.

In this reported deal, the Celtics offered Jaylen Brown, Derrick White and a draft pick for the Nets’ superstar, but Brooklyn rejected this proposal and instead asked for Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, multiple draft picks and potentially another player to be added onto the deal. According to Charania, the Celtics are now mulling over next steps on how to approach discussions with the Nets.

Not only have the Celtics become one of the top defensive teams in the league, but their All-Star duo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum remains one of the best duos in the entire league, especially given that they are both 25-years-old or younger.
