It’s been rather quiet on the Kevin Durant trade front lately, with the Brooklyn Nets seemingly struggling to find any team that will offer them the desired package for their superstar. At this point, it definitely feels like KD might stay with the team into training camp and potentially beyond. The latest rumblings from a couple of weeks ago however said the Boston Celtics offered Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, and a first-rounder for Durant, but the Nets turned it down.
But according to Steve Bullpet of Heavy Sports, there is serious doubt such an offer was ever made:
“There was a recent report that the Nets had weeks ago turned down an offer of Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, and a first-round pick from the Celtics, but others have disputed to Heavy that such a proposal was ever truly on the table.”
