Kevin Durant
'Unrealistic' return
FBrooklyn Nets

May 13, 2020
Durant's manager and business partner Rich Kleiman said last week in an appearance on SiriusXM Radio that he doesn't anticipate the 10-time All-Star debuting for the Nets if the 2019-20 season resumes in July, Ian Begley of SNY.tv reports. "From my standpoint, no, I think it's unrealistic," Kleiman said, when asked about Durant's potential return. "That's just my view on it. Again, we haven't gone deep into conversation about it because of how unrealistic it all seems to me. And it's also hard to even discuss [the matter of Durant returning] in a real serious manner without any information on the season. [There is] such uncertainty day to day -- as we all [feel], outside of just the NBA -- that the whole thing just feels too unrealistic from my standpoint."

May 5, 2020
Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a recent interview with Grant Chapman of Newshub that the team isn't officially ruling Durant (Achilles) out for the 2019-20. "That's a $110 [million] question. In all seriousness, we've tried not to talk about his timeline a lot," Marks said. "When you've got enough invested in a player like Kevin, we're never going to push him to come back," Marks said. "When the timing is right, he'll be 100 percent when he gets on the court. I can tell you this though -- before the pandemic, he looked like Kevin Durant, and that's a good thing."
