A sports analyst and former American football tight end for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, Shannon Sharpe, shared his thoughts on the news the Boston Celtics engaged in Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets trade talks: “If I’m the Boston Celtics, I’m not letting Marcus Smart hold this deal up. They’d be a little worse defensively, but better offensively … This got KD written all over it. If you can’t beat them, join them.”
