Although Josh didn’t go into detail, he appears to be referring to a November 2021 report from ESPN that claimed the Celtics had an “players-only emotional meeting” following Marcus Smart’s comments about Brown and Jason Tatum not passing the ball.

According to The Athletic, the Celtics and Nets have been engaged in business talks about Durant, but they are nowhere near an agreement. Boston is said to have offered Brown, guard Derek White, and a draft pick for Durant. It looks like Brooklyn is back with a counter to include Brown, smart – defensive player of the year – draft picks, and possibly another rotation player at any suggestion.

Celtics are less inclined to include Smart alongside other multiplayer or select assets, though.

Durant, who will turn 34 in September, asked to leave Brooklyn in late June after the Celtics swept the nets in the first round of the playoff. He signed a four-year, $198 million extension with Nets last August. Meanwhile, Brown has two years left on his Boston contract.

The Horford family is known for their emotional tweets about the Celtics. During the NBA Finals, the big man’s sister, Anna, called up Warriors star Draymond Green for his physical style of play in the series.
