Complete garbage.

I don't deny SAS has some connections/sources but 99% of the time he's wrong with this sort of stuff.

Brooklyn is basically NY/NJ, which is another market ESPN adores. Them, NYK, LAL, LAC.

Iím just going to repeat myself:

Woj & Shams already out there creating the market for Brooklyn.  ::)

Please say they keep the Celtics names out of their dang mouths.

Maybe over the summer if JB isnít interested in extending for whatever reason, but definitely not this season. For starters, KD currently has a knee injury and isnít able to play! Makes no sense to trade for him at this point in time.

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

SAS would never let common sense get in the way of making baseless statements.

I could see this being discussed by the Nets and Celtics, but the fact that SAS brought it up makes me believe there is no shot whatsoever of anything happening. Iíve yet to see that guy be right about something.

I love the terminology - "on the verge of potentially being moved".   Really, really close to the possibility of being moved.  In other words, it means nothing. 

I wonder what Brooklyn would offer in addition to KD to pique the Celtics interest.   ;)

I couldnít see this being discussed by the Celtics as a mid-season deal when they have the best record in the league.   The off-season was questionable enough, but Stevens isnít going to completely change the core of this team midstream.  Itís not his style.  He wouldnít entertain that thought.

Not this again. Not sure why this would make any sense doing it mid season.

I have no doubt that a discussion took place. It went like this:

Sean Marks: "Hey, how do you feel about Durant for Jaylen Brown and matching salary pieces?"

Brad: (bursts out laughing before hanging up)

Marks: "Hey, SAS, I spoke to the Celtics about KD!"

If you're in win now mode I don't think it's a good idea to trade for an injured guy.

The amount of fear I would have every night Durant fell or did something would be horrible. The best ability is availability.
