Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant: Wasting no time on (James) Harden thoughts

BEYOND the physical acclimation of returning to the court on a daily basis, Kevin Durant plans to invest his time getting to know his role with the Brooklyn Nets.

That role doesn’t include general manager responsibilities.

Durant said Wednesday he’s not wasting a second thinking about trade rumors tying the Nets to James Harden, his former teammate with the Oklahoma City Thunder, because there is too much on his plate without also piling on personnel duties.

“I don’t think about James Harden at all. I mean, he doesn’t play on our team,” Durant said.

The 31-year-old Durant also provided new insight into his expected role with the Nets this season. Durant’s next game will be his first since the 2019 NBA Finals, when he ruptured his Achilles as a member of the Golden State Warriors. A few weeks later, following surgery, he signed a four-year deal with the Nets.

The Nets made the playoffs last season with Durant and Kyrie Irving out and then hired Steve Nash as head coach.

The Nets plan to play a smaller lineup and Durant outlined Nash’s thoughts of having him split time between point guard and center this season. At either spot, the 6-foot-10 scoring machine will be a difficult check.

“I’ve never been one to predict anything, but I like our chances of going out there and competing at that high level every single night,” Durant said. “And as tough as that is in this league, I think we’re capable of doing it and we got a lot of guys who have experienced so much in this league. We got champions on this team. …” — Reuters
