Sean Mark, manager of the Brooklyn Nets said, “Nervous anticipation” afternoon of June 30 while his staff gathers in a room for the opening hours of free agency. Later in the evening he said, “I think when you have a window or you have an opportunity to swing for it and take a chance, take a challenge, and you can do it with the right people, that’s when you have to do it.” It is after Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving confirmed the team up and free agency speculations. The two NBA superstars will join the Brooklyn Nets and the neighboring teams are seemed threatened.
Over eight seasons with Boston and Cleveland, Irving has averaged 22.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals over 508 career games. b On the other hand, Durant, 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player and 2014 NBA MVP with an averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.1 blocked shots a game for the Warriors this season and boosted his production to 32.3 points and 7.7 rebounds.
Durant will change his number along with his address. He said that he used number 35 throughout his career to honor someone “very near and dear” to him. Durant also added, “As I start this new chapter in my basketball life, the number I’ll be wearing on my back is the Number 7 next time you see me on the floor.” Meanwhile, Durant isn’t expected to play next season due to recovery from an Achilles injury.
However, with Irving on the team, Durant’s absence in one whole season will not affect the overall standing of the team and Mark is confident that Nets still has an advantage given that rising NBA superstars D’Angelo Russell, Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham are also in the team.
Mark admits that their roster for the next season’s playoffs is one of the biggest breakthroughs in Nets’ history and he was very overwhelmed with the trust that Durant and Irving gave to the management. Durant and Irving landing on Nets gave a new hope for Brooklyn.
