Should the Boston Celtics steer clear of trading for Brooklyn Nets star swingman Kevin Durant? The appeal of what the one-time Texas start can do on the court is clear, but the stuff that comes with KD is what has some fans and analysts worried about the potential outcomes that might result if the Celtics ship out a large part of their current roster and draft assets to bring on the future Hall of Famer.
At every step of his career, Durant has been unhappy enough to make waves, sometimes even when his team is winning titles. His advanced age for an NBA player means a possible decline looms with nearly $200 million owed him over four seasons. Add his growing tendency to miss large chunks of the season due to injury, and the disaster potential is not minor.
The hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast, Kwani A. Lunis and Gary Washburn, talked over the pros and cons of a potential KD deal and spent a good amount of time reckoning with what might go sideways.
Watch the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say on this lingering, important topic.
