The Golden State Warriors have acquired guard D'Angelo Russell, along with guard Shabazz Napier and forward Treveon Graham, in a sign-and-trade transaction that sent free agent forward Kevin Durant and a protected first round draft pick to the Brooklyn Nets, the team announced today.
However, Durant might simply see his Nets tenure as the beginning of a new era and deserving of a new number.
Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Golden State Warriors co-chairman and CEO Joe Lacob suggested that KD's No. 35 jersey for the team would be retired following his departure. Not just that, he also managed to convince Kevin Durant to join the Nets and play together with him. Durant explained his decision via Instagram on one of his business pages, Thirty Five Ventures.
Last week Durant committed to Brooklyn and chose to move on from his time with Golden State. Durant wouldn't play again until Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors, where he ruptured his Achilles.Читайте также: Rob Gronkowski Confirms Working Out with Tom Brady, 'It Was Great!'
"35 was chosen in honour of someone very near and dear to me". I will always honour him and honour the No. 35.
Durant totalled 22,940 regular season points, two National Basketball Association champinships, two Finals MVP's, one regular season MVP, four scoring titles and 10 All-Star selections in the no.35.
"Kevin is a champion, perennial All-Star, and one of the great players of this, or any, generation", Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement.
The former MVP averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 78 games for the Warriors last season. He's coming off an All-Star season with the Nets and we feel, at the age of 23, his best basketball is certainly ahead of him in regards to his career trajectory. He became the first player in National Basketball Association history to average 30 points per game on 50-40-90 shooting in a single postseason (minimum five games).При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
