Kevin Durant’s manager: ‘Not very realistic’ Durant returns to Nets this season
But that was before the NBA season could extend into August due the coronavirus outbreak.
Golic and Wingo:
There’s also talk about Kyrie Irving returning from his shoulder injury if the layoff is long enough. The Nets could be a historically dangerous No. 7 seed.
Which I think partially explains Rich Kleiman’s answer.
Durant doesn’t want to build anticipation for his return. If he does, fans would only be disappointed if he’s not ready. It’s better to keep expectations low then exceed them.
So, maybe Durant is gearing up for a return this season. Maybe he’s not. Either way, I’d expect the same response from Kleiman.
As a result, this will only quiet – not silence – speculation.
