The Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat remain the most significant candidates to complete a trade with the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant at this venue, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Boston's package centered on Jaylen Brown is seen as a viable deal.

Joe Tsai and the Nets have privately made clear they will attempt to extract every last asset from a team that trades for Durant.

Durant has grown close with Ime Udoka from their time together with Brooklyn as well as Team USA.
