Colin Cowherd: “There is a report that KD and the Celtics is a pretty viable discussion right now… What was apparently offered was Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, and a first-round pick. The Brooklyn Nets want a lot more than that, they want Marcus Smart, another Draft pick, and another rotational player. I’m not blowing up my chemistry for KD, I’m not blowing up my bench for KD, I’m not blowing up my future for KD, and I’m now blowing out my coach for KD… Brooklyn did. Brooklyn is looking for a ‘desperate’ team. Boston is not desperate. Excellent young coach, excellent culture, excellent chemistry, Brad Stevens appears to be very strong as a GM, and they added Malcolm Brogdon. We all acknowledge that the best roster, coach, and culture combo in the NBA is Golden State. Many believe Boston is two. In 2022 for Kevin Durant I would give you what Brad Stevens apparently offered: Jaylen Brown, a very good bench player, and I would give you two picks. I think the deal is doable but I’m not throwing in Marcus Smart and I’m not throwing in another rotational player. I would give you two first-round picks, Jaylen Brown, and a bench player. That’s a completely reasonable move.” (Full Segment Above)

Check out the segment above as Colin says why this trade offer with the Boston Celtics should be the most that a team surrenders for the 33-year-old KD.
