This will be Kevin Durant‘s third year as an active player for the Brooklynites, and he will begin the season with the Brooklyn Nets. KD made the decision to hunt for a fresh challenge in the NBA after a poor exit from last season. He asked to be traded from Brooklyn, which shocked the NBA.
The athlete and the team chose to move on and put this in the past after being offered to numerous teams and realizing the Nets’ high asking price for him. Durant, a current Net, will fight for this revamped squad next season.
All of the players on the roster are prepared to run the ball back, and KD is ready for any challenges this season may bring. The Big 3 are attempting to establish some camaraderie before the season begins by moving and going out together already.
