The Nets' Kevin Durant did not speak to reporters Tuesday night at the New York premiere of the Showtime documentary "NYC Point Gods," but a potential future teammate did.

Celtics star Jayson Tatum said that while he believes Durant — a teammate on the U.S. Olympic team — is a great player, he likes the Celtics as they are currently constituted. That includes Jaylen Brown, who is reported to be part of trade talks between the Celtics and Nets.

"I just play basketball," Tatum said. "That's not my decision. I love our team. I love the guys that we've got. I don't know if that report is true or not . . . I don't believe everything I see on TV."

Rich Kleiman, Durant's business manager, said he could not talk about Durant's situation. Durant reportedly asked the Nets for a trade about a month ago.

Durant and Kleiman are executive producers for the documentary, which premieres Friday.

Former Celtic and Net Paul Pierce said at the premiere, "That [trade] ain't happening. [The Celtics] don't need to make no moves."
