    He is nowhere near as good as KD, has a lot of question marks, one of which is also injuries, and has a massive contract. I donít even know if Iíd want him

    Not as good as KD but is still a far younger star. And that contract is how he would be available. Would be a much lighter package than KD.

    For a reasonÖbecause thereís questions if heís even close to worth that money. Always been suspected as an empty-numbers type. You think heís the guy that gets us to legit contender?

    Iím not sure of that at all. I donít think Iíd like the odds. Unless itís for a small cost, which I doubt

    Yeah if Knicks trade for him it would be at a much lighter cost than for KD. Knicks would still have most of their young guys and some draft picks for future flexibility. This would not be a one and done trade. But I do think it makes the Knicks significantly better.

    However, the second, deeper possibility every front office will be whiteboarding, is what happens with Luka Dončić. Even before this trade happened, execs I talked to on my road trip this past week, who were given anonymity so they could speak freely, were openly wondering if adding Irving could create a last-straw type situation that ends up pushing Dončić to seek the exits Ö much as happened with James Harden in Brooklyn.

    Stephen A. Smith: I'm hearing Kevin Durant is on the verge of potentially being moved... the Celtics are interested

    Christopher Lavinio: ďBy the way Iím hearing that heís [Kevin Durant] on the verge of potentially being moved. Obviously weíve all been speculating about thatÖthat he may be moved. Iím hearing Boston is making some calls. Keep your eye on Jaylen Brown. Keep your eye on that.Ē Ė @stephenasmith on FT Ė via Twitter

    If Boston will trade Jaylen Brown then we cannot compete with that. I know they offered him once before but I figured maybe they felt it was best to keep their championship core together now.

    All depends what BK wants though - picks to rebuild or pieces to stay competitive.

    Again, though. Would BK like to deal for a guy thatís possibly a one year rental?

    No but I could very easily see Jaylen Brown embracing being the face of the franchise in Brooklyn.

    Itís possible. Question is, how confident are they in that? And would they gamble on it, or taking a bigger guaranteed return?

    What really makes it a wildcard, is he likely wonít extend anywhere until after the season, as an all-nba nod would make the numbers a lot bigger. And if he gets that, it would have to be with Boston, which then means he canít be traded right away, I think. So if heís leaving, any extensions likely donít happen until after next season, where he could get at least a normal max extension

    Canít see Boston making a trade of this magnitude in the midst of a title run with the best record in the league.

    Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.com reports the Jazz may have interest in acquiring Obi Toppin from the Knicks.

    I guess he's not a Thibs guy but I am surprised we haven't heard Kelly Olynyk's name mentioned if the Jazz are interested in Obi. Cam and Obi for Kelly works and you have a legit stretch 5 if Thibs is willing to use him there.

    The Knicks and Jazz have had exploratory conversations surrounding Obi Toppin, Evan Fournier, and draft pick compensation for Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt, league sources told HoopsHype.

    Just what we need, another centerÖ

    And like you, I always liked Kelly. But I just canít see it happening. Plus, no rim protection

    Although, would be fun to see Thibs figure out how to play Hart, Sims, and Kelly at the same time
