Donít believe it. I think this is Marks calling up Woj for a favor to get the other teams to pony up more.

Maybe Nets saw the JB training video and just have to have him.

JB and Smart or White, but only if JB has shared intent to leave after next season.  Not seeing the motivation for JB to share intent to leave unless it was specifically to instigate a trade to Brooklyn.

Sources: The Boston Celtics have offered a Jaylen Brown package to the Nets for Kevin Durant, which Brooklyn turned down and countered.

To be honest Iím not sure Iíd even do the former.
Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so muchóthe wheel, New York, wars and so onówhilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.

But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than manófor precisely the same reasons.

Donít do it. We have depth, a top 10 player, and a top 30 player. Both are young.

We want to trade that depth for another top 10 (not top 5) player that has been hard to please? Are we trying to become the Lakers, who are challenged by their lack of depth and are restricted to make moves because of their aging players under contract?

Did you guys think that KDís performance this year was worth it? He looked old. Still a great shooter.

I think Durant is still a top 5 offensive force in the comp, alongside Jokic, Doncic, LeBron and Curry. Transformative impact. I also think he'd do better with more reliable teammates, insofar as taking the stress of him

If we have put Brown on table already, Iím betting this trade happens. Donít see any legit competition to that level of player being offered. Not sure how I feel.

For how many more years will KD be better than JB? 1? 2?

KD is not Lebron, who is still driving to the basket. The Tatum and KD pull up fest will get old.

For the remaining duration of Brown's contract, I think he will be superior (by a significant margin).

I also don't share your concern over that "getting old". Two of the premier scorers in the league, both of whom are above average passers, sounds great. KD was essentially a 30/7/6 guy on near 50/40/90.

Worth it to me. I think it makes us nigh on unstoppable

Not sure Brad feels like JB is going to resign so might as well move  him now. Not sure if this doesnít happen how JB responds.

The picks are the picks. Brad isnít Danny who seems emotionally attached to them.

I wouldn't make the trade for Jaylen - but now that it's on the table I almost feel like we have to.

I feel like White and Smart are almost interchangeable so that's really a non-factor in the whole deal in all honesty. Obviously Smart is better defensively, but I think Whites ability to know his role cancels out the superior defense of Smart.

I think it's a matter if you are willing to trade Jaylen for Durant. I personally would not, but now the news has broke I truly believe Jaylen is a goner no matter what so better make it happen for Durant.

I feel like we meet in the middle Jaylen/Smart and a pick for Durant.

My biggest concern is Durants attitude - he's gone in public with the Boston is racist and he's had Kyrie poisoning his brain about Boston for 2 years now. This has the making to be Kyrie 2.0 and I don't like it.

Yeah...  Nothing like throwing a giant chemistry bomb into the locker room.

My thought has been, offer Brown if and only if he's likely to leave.  Once you make that offer, though, I think it pushes him further out the door.

Brown + White + two #1s and a swap for Durant + Curry
