The Celtics are coming off a run to the NBA Finals, and there’s probably no reason for sweeping changes.
Unless you can get Nets star Kevin Durant, that is.
But if you ask Jayson Tatum, the Celtics are fine as is.
Durant requested a trade earlier this month, shortly after Kyrie Irving signed a contract extension. Those two things may or may not be related.
At first, Durant was linked to the Heat and Suns, as those are supposedly his preferred destinations. But for now, neither appears willing to surrender the type of massive haul the Nets are seeking.
“I don’t make anything of it,” Tatum said of the rumors. “I just play basketball.”
Of Durant specifically, Tatum added, “I’ve played with him during the Olympics. He’s a great player. That’s not my decision. I love our team. I love the guys that we got. I don’t know if that report is true or not.”
Of Brown, he added, “I don’t believe everything I see on TV. I’ve seen some (expletive) about me that was a lie. You never really know what is true and what’s not true.”
