In a Tuesday press conference, Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks said that All-Star forward Kevin Durant will be staying with the team.
Fewer than two months after Durant reportedly demanded a trade from the Nets, Marks made the announcement on social media. “Yesterday in Los Angeles, Kevin Durant, and Rich Kleiman met with Steve Nash, me, Joe Tsai, and Clara Wu Tsai,” Marks added. Our relationship is continuing as planned.
In order to deliver a championship to Brooklyn, we are putting all of our efforts into basketball with the overarching mission of creating a long-lasting franchise.
The Nets acquired the 33-year-old forward from the Golden State Warriors in a sign-and-trade deal prior to the 2019 season.
He concluded his third year with the team averaging 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in 55 games. Brooklyn had a 44-38 record last year and was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the eventual Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics.
Last offseason, the two-time NBA champion inked a contract extension keeping him in Brooklyn until the 2025-26 season. On October 19, 2022, the Nets will host the New Orleans Pelicans for the first game of the 2022-23 season.
