Another day, another round of offseason rumors to cover.
“From what I understand, they’re not going to take their foot off the gas when it comes to pursuing Anthony Davis,” Mannix said.
He goes on to report that the Celtics seem to have been close to a Kawhi Leonard deal a year ago, if only they had been willing to part with Jaylen Brown.
“I do know that there is some regret with some people in the Celtics organization about not pulling the trigger on a Kawhi Leonard deal,” Mannix said. “They could have made a deal for him involving Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart, or at least with Brown as the centerpiece.”
Finally, the latest talking heads talking about Kyrie Irving leaving the Celtics for the Nets.
"The interest in Brooklyn is real from Kyrie, that's been known for a long time. And I have a source that tells me Kyrie is trying to pursue Kevin Durant. He has reached out to KD and tried to persuade him [to come to the Nets]." — @criscarter80 pic.twitter.com/EFEaWlptnp— First Things First (@FTFonFS1) June 7, 2019
I’m sure we’ll have another round of rumors tomorrow and the next day and for the next month or so. Enjoy!
