Fans of the Boston Celtics awoke to news their favorite team might be gearing up to trade not only Jaylen Brown but also Derrick White or perhaps even Marcus Smart and more to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for veteran superstar Kevin Durant. And while there is little debate that as things stand now that Durant is the better player in terms of what he can do for raising a team’s postseason potential, the asking price, his salary, age, disposition, and injury history are also elements in need of consideration.

But as the morning continued, more information trickled out about the timing and potential intent of such reports percolating to the surface. Who benefits from such news breaking? What other clues can we divine from related reports about the level of interest in dealing for Durant around the league?

And perhaps more importantly, how is Brown’s camp feeling about all of this, and might it be an issue of concern when the team wants to re-sign the Georgia native?
