NBA news: Kevin Durant backed to join Celtics next summer in SHOCK development | Other | Sport

That’s the huge claim from former Celtics star Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis, who was part of the side which won the 2008 NBA Championship.

Durant’s future has been a hot topic around the league as he could become a free agent next summer.

He is widely expected to opt out of the final year of his Golden State Warriors contract to seek a max contract and this week’s altercation with Draymond Green has added to rumours that he will look to leave the Oracle Arena.

Green called Durant a b**** on several occasions while also daring his team-mate to leave in free agency next summer which ultimately led to the former being suspended by the team for one game.

Speaking after Thursday night’s loss to the Houston Rockets, Durant said he doesn’t want to speak about the incident again.

But former players and NBA experts have been giving their opinion on what the clash with Green truly means for Durant’s future.

The 30-year-old has been heavily linked with joining the New York Knicks or Los Angeles Lakers in past weeks.

However, Davis has thrown another name in the hat – the Celtics – and even goes as far as to predict it is a foregone conclusion his former team will snap up the two-time NBA Finals MVP.

“Boston, KD is on the way! Y’all heard it here first,” Davis wrote in the comments section of an Instagram post.

He added: “Guys think about it.

“For real, listen to what KD said earlier about Boston and [their] team and how they are a tough match for the [Golden State] Warriors.

“Plus who talks about money at this time during the season.

“Then also Uncle Drew [Kyrie Irving] said 2 weeks ago saying ‘I need a 15 year vet.’

“It’s coming together for sure now. Especially seeing this fallout in the second half of that [Los Angeles] Clippers game.

“The Warriors will handle business this year but KD [is] leaving.

“Believe it or not, the Lakers are coming and KD doesn’t want no part of LeBron when he’s full throttle.”
