Kevin Durant Joining the Nets Wasn't Well Thought Out

Kevin Durant Joining the Nets Wasn't Well Thought Out

Durant left the Golden State Warriors after winning two National Basketball Association championships in three seasons to sign with Brooklyn.

On Tuesday, however, Nets general manager Sean Marks told WFAN Sports Radio in NY what Durant told him about his decision to join the Nets. Marks said. "But first and foremost - and probably the most important piece - is to sit down and give the young man his time and say, 'Kyrie, hey look, how do we make this a success for you?" Of all the players affected by it, nearly all of them suffered a performance decline on the court, and there's a high chance that Kevin Durant will join their ranks.

Following Kevin Durant's devastating Achilles injury that will sideline him for the upcoming season, fans have been asking when he's going to be returning.

"I love the system", Marks said. "We'd seen some media reports earlier in the day that Kevin had crossed several teams off his list and we were still one of them (being considered). And then when Kevin posted it on The Boardroom Instagram site, that was news to all of us in the office". "We could never take you guys lightly", Marks said talking about Durant's admission on WFAN on Tuesday. He said the decision to return will be entirely on the two-time NBA Finals MVP. "We're certainly not going to rush him back". "There's going to be absolutely none of that". Of course, that's hard to say since the Nets are keeping everything close to the chest, which is understandable since the outside noise might influence Kevin Durant's road to recovery. "They have to start driving the culture". Unfortunately, it might not be a full year until we see KD on the floor again. They signed All-Stars Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan and also landed two great veteran forwards in Wilson Chandler and Garrett Temple.
