Kevin Durant reveals he could have played for the Knicks: “I wish…”

Phoenix Suns star was with the Brooklyn Nets before moving to Arizona, but could have played for the other New York team

For very little, Kevin Durant didn't play in New York Knicks. During the summer of 2019, the star came close to signing with the franchise New York. But, she decided to leave the Golden State Warriors to go to the Brooklyn Nets. Something that did not please his manager and business partner at all, Rich Kleiman.

Then, Durant responded: “You definitely wanted to. More than anything”. KD, however, did not comply with his manager's wishes. That offseason, number 35 arrived at the Nets. “The brand was cool, but at the time, I wasn’t interested in that point. I was looking at the team, which was not fun to play. It wasn't fun to watch. I may have exaggerated a little or lied a little about the brand. I may have included the brand too”he stated.

“I was thinking about our goal, until everything started to fall apart. We weren't playing well. Then Kyrie asked to be traded. It seemed like nothing was in our favor. But, I was focused. I think you could see that in the basketball I was playing. I looked around and thought: 'What am I going to do?'. I didn't know who my teammates would be. So, I was very stressed about everything that was happening. Ultimately, we reached a good agreement for both sides.”concluded Durant.
