Durant officially joins Nets, Russell to Warriors

There were rumblings Irving would be headed to the Nets for some time, but the question was whether he'd get Durant or someone else to join him.

"Along with the rest of the league, our coaching staff has long admired Kevin's incredible skill, resilience, and tenacity", head coach Kenny Atkinson said in a statement.

He is losing his number 35 and switching to the number 7.

Kevin Durant has worn No. 35 throughout his National Basketball Association career, but now he is seeking a new start as he takes his talents out East with the Brooklyn Nets.

Durant had worn number 35 throughout his tenure as a champion in Golden State, through the years in which he established himself as a superstar in Oklahoma City and even his rookie campaign in that green and gold SuperSonics get-up. "His championship pedigree, coupled with his gifted scoring and playmaking abilities, will make him an outstanding addition to our team".

The 27-year-old point guard, who spent more than eight seasons with the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers, has averaged 22.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals over 508 career games. But he says the change signifies the next chapter in his basketball career. "We wish him the best moving forward".

The Brooklyn Nets were much more than a last-minute change of heart for Kyrie Irving, but rather his preferred landing spot soon after his postseason ended with a disappointing four straight losses against the Milwaukee Bucks.

"We are very pleased to welcome Bojan and his family to our organization", Jazz executive vice president of basketball operations Dennis Lindsey said.
