Boston’s Marcus Smart opens up on what it was like to be included in Kevin Durant trade rumors

·2 min read

While it might have irked star Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown to be in trade rumors for Brooklyn Nets star forward Kevin Durant this summer — the jury is still out on what Brown’s cryptic “SMH” tweet actually referred to — his veteran teammate Marcus Smart let the rumor mill roll on by without blinking twice when his name came up in conjunction with those KD trade rumors.

The Flower Mound native recently sat down for an interview with the eponymous host of the “Rich Eisen” show, breaking down what it was like for him to see his name floated as a potential target for a swap with Brooklyn for Durant.

Smart even touched on some atypical subjects for his usual interviews like stem cell matching and the NFL.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what he had to say in this talk with Eisen embedded above.
