You pretty much have to do the trade now.  Brown, Smart, PP or GW, 25 1st, 27 1st, 29 1st (top 4) for Durant, Curry

That makes a lot of sense for winning a title in the next 2 years


Too much.

Timelord / Horford
Durant / Gallinari
Tatum /
Curry / White
Brogdon / Pritchard

That’s an extremely talented roster, but it’s the roster we’d be stuck with, with no real avenues to upgrade.
Agreed. If they are getting Smart and another rotation guy like Williams or Pritchard, then that's too many picks. At this point, I’d equate KD impact similar to when Cs got KG. He’s a bonafide star/#1 guy. Takes pressure of JT and makes him an above average #2 banana on the roster.

Also, if this deal were to go down, am I the only one that would still want to go double bigs and leave KD at the wing and just slide White into the starting lineup? White/JT/KD/Horford/Williams. Good size and length at every position and I think JT would benefit sliding down a peg and guarding some smaller players.

Can the Nets yield a better player than JB? I don’t think so. KD is a malcontent and wants out. His trade value should be at his all time low.

I honestly prefer JBs potential over KDs demise. I say no to a straight up deal.

I think I’m higher on JBs potential as a top 10 player than other people. I think he will become a better version of Jimmy Butler.

I think KD is a diva and plays a soft brand of basketball. Tatum is susceptible to this kind of play. I don’t need to see anymore tricky fadeaway long 2s from Tatum. I want to see him destroy the rim after attacking. I think JB is more likely to promote this style of Bball.

The fact the Nets would turn that down for a 34 year old Durant is telling. Another FO trying to dig themselves out of their own demise.

The way I look at it is that it will take me about 8 seconds to adjust from being excited about the Jays with Brogdon to being excited about KD, JT, and Brogdon.

I don’t care about late round 1st rounders.

I love Jaylen Brown’s game. It’s aggressive and electric.

I love Marcus Smart’s game. Guy is a junkyard dog.

We already have a player that prefers to be passive by taking long 2s. His name is Jayson Tatum. KD is older and grumpier.

article reeks of a Nets desperation move to get a bigger package for Durant from someone (and sow discord in the C's locker room) rather than a legit story that the C's actually made that offer.

If the story came from one of the 10,000 other beat reporters I'd agree with you. The fact that it's coming from Woj and Shams has to make you believe its legitimate

Brown just liked a tweet from a Celtics fan that says, “No matter what happens I love you”

JB’s game is also reckless and inconsistent. Handles are incredibly poor and he lacks a solid basketball IQ. How many times have we seen him drive into four players and turn it over. Losing brown wouldn’t bother me…esp if there are indications he won’t resign.

Rather keep smart if they could.

I started this topic and somehow Tenn_Smoothie is shown as the OP. Have never seen that happen before and it seems that the title was changed too. Who did this?

Your topic was merged with Tenn Smoothie's as they were about the same subject. As his was posted first and yours posted after, his post appears as the first one.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

What are the indications that JB won’t sign? I haven’t heard this from anyone in the know.

I love JBs reckless nature. I think he will improve his ball handling.

I don’t think KD is a ball handler.
