The news shocked the entire league as many were shocked that Durant requested a trade after signing the extension.

While the Nets waited for the right trade to transfer the future Hall of Famer, he received an offer from a heated rival in the Boston Celtics.

The Celtics reached the NBA Finals last season but eventually lost to the Golden State Warriors.

Of course, trading Jaylen Brown would not be a priority. But the Celtics will be ready to move

Brown would be the player Brooklyn could get in exchange for Durant, and it will be interesting to see how he fits into this team, but for now, Durant is a member of the Nets.

Seriously, if Brooklyn doesn't get the kind of offer that really blows them away, they should bring him and Kyrie Irving back

and try again with a healthy roster. The 2021-22 season was a disaster, but like most prospects, it's a strong roster on paper.
