The Brooklyn Nets were busy spenders in the off-season. They signed two of the best players in the league in Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
Their fans will have to wait to see the dynamic duo to play together. Durant, according to GM Sean Marks, will miss the entire 2019-20 season.
KD, who is one of the Top 5 players in the league, was injured in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. He suffered a torn Achilles injury.
It was initially thought, whoever signed him, would be without the superstar for at least this upcoming season. Marks has confirmed the initial thoughts around the league.
Durant signed a four-year, $164 million deal with the Nets in July. Both Durant and Irving took less money so that the team could make more additions, like DeAndre Jordan.
Yahoo Sports’ Mike Mazzeo is reporting that Durant’s rehab is going well, according to Marks. However, the Nets are not going to rush him back.
