Nets seek Celtics for Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown in Kevin Durant trade talks

Kevin Durant The Nets' demand for was more than we already knew.

Brooklyn asked the Celtics for both Jayson Tatum and Durant's Jaylen Brown. According to The Boston Globe, the proposal was promptly rejected. He fought back with Marcus Smart, and a number of draft picks. The move was first reported last month by Shams Charania of The Atheltic, but was again dismissed.

According to the Globe, there was "no real traction" on a deal to send Durant to Boston.

Durant issued an ultimatum to Nets owner Joe Tsai this weekto choose between general manager Sean Marks and coach Steve Nash. Said. Tsai tweeted shortly after the ultimatum was made public, stating that the team's "front office and coaching staff have my support."

Bringing in Durant, who signed with Brooklyn in the summer of 2019, backfired spectacularly for the Nets. The Nets never even made it to his NBA Finals and have always been in the sidelines thanks to the superstar's antics.

Not sure where Durant goes from here. Because of that, he might be able to put together a competitive package for one of the league's best players, who remains unknown. Charania reports that the Celtics, Raptors and Heat are the "top contenders" for the deal. Durant is entering the first year of his four-year, $198 million contract extension signed last summer.

"I don't think anyone on the team is safe to be traded," sources told The Post's Brian Lewis and Josh Kossman. "Everybody's trying to get it."

The source added that Durant is unlikely to be in the game if he's not traded. }
