NBA Kevin Durant en galère aux Nets

Woj Bomb, a cador arrives in force on the Kevin Durant file!

Several weeks after claiming his trade to leave Brooklyn, Kevin Durant is still a Nets player, and the market remains locked on the two-time NBA champion. However, the situation could change with the arrival of a top team in dance, as reported by the essential Adrian Wojnarowski…

Will Kevin Durant see his wish to leave Brooklyn come true? Nothing is less sure. If KD has decided to turn the New York page of his career, the former Thunder and Warriors still has 4 years of contract with the Nets, and nothing obliges the franchise to rush a trade. The strategy of the front office so far has been adapted accordingly: wait, ask a lot, and above all do not rush on unsatisfactory proposals with regard to the talent of Durantula’s aura.

The Heat, Suns and Raptors are the top 3 teams in talks to acquire KD so far, but a serious new suitor has come into play – enough for insider Adrian Wojnarowski to drop an article at 2:30 a.m. local time:

Boston enters race for Kevin Durant

Sources: As Kevin Durant’s trade request nears its 4th week, the Boston Celtics have emerged among the teams in talks for a potential deal.

The Woj quickly adds that nothing is close to being recorded between the two camps, especially since Brooklyn still wants a big package, including a lot of draft rounds and swaps. But compared to other competitors, the Celtics have a significant advantage. Her name ? Jaylen Brown

The Celtics are no closer than any other team to acquiring Durant, but Boston’s potential to include All-Star winger Jaylen Brown as the centerpiece of the offer makes them the most threatening in the pursuit of KD, according to sources.

The Celtics consider Jayson Tatum off-limits in talks, but are willing to build a package that would include Brown, 3 unprotected first-round draft picks (2025, 2027, and 2029, and 2 swaps (2024 and 2026). Brown, 25, has two years and $56 million left on his current contract.

The Celtics are hungry for success after their failure in the Finals, and they would be ready to mount a blockbuster to build a Tatum / Durant duo in Massachusetts. Case to follow, but the C’s clearly have the assets to convince the front office of the Nets!
