Jayson Tatum Opens Up About Kevin Durant Celtics Rumors

The Boston Celtics have been in the news as of late, but mostly due to Kevin Durant.

With the NBA offseason in full swing, there have been plenty of crazy rumors to keep fans chomping at the bit. Many of these rumors have directly had to do with Kevin Durant, who is currently in the middle of a very public trade demand. At this point, it remains to be seen whether or not KD will actually be traded, although the most recent report suggests he gave an ultimatum.

Still the Boston Celtics seem to be interested in Durant as of right now. A couple of weeks ago, a report came out claiming that the Celtics offered the Nets Jaylen Brown although Brooklyn ultimately declined. This move seemed to be pretty much out of left field, especially since the Celtics were only two wins away from a title with their current roster.

According to The Athletic, Jayson Tatum was asked about the trade rumors and what he thinks about Brad Stevens going after KD.

According to Tatum, he’s not going to step on Brad Stevens’ toes.

“The cool part about his job is Brad don’t tell me how to do my job anymore. You not the coach,” Tatum said. “He lets me do my thing. I let him do his thing. In all honesty, that’s his decision and that’s his job.

The biggest problem for any team looking to trade for Kevin Durant is who they’ll have to give up, more specifically, what will they have left if they can get  him.

Tatum knows not to get too involved.
