Cedric Maxwell said he’d trade Jaylen Brown for Kevin Durant if it were his call

Celtics radio analyst Cedric Maxwell said he would trade Jaylen Brown for Kevin Durant if the decision were up to him.

“Jaylen Brown is one of my favorite players,” Maxwell said on his podcast Sunday. “But if that trade were to happen I would be like ‘yep, that’s a good trade’. Because Red Auerbach said it best, you cannot fall in love with the assets or the players.”

Maxwell compared the prospect of adding Durant with the trade the Celtics made to get Kevin Garnett in 2007.

Garnett played four seasons in Boston and led the Celtics to an NBA title in 2008 before being traded to the Brooklyn Nets.
