Marks and his staff were under the assumption they were going to teleconference call with Durant once free agency opened on June 30 or meet face-to-face with the two-time Finals MVP, who was already in New York City.

Besides announcing on Instagram that he was joining the Nets and that he will switch to wearing No. 7, the 10-time all-star hasn't publicly spoken about his move to Brooklyn.

General manager Sean Marks told WFAN on Tuesday that in his first conversation with Durant after the announcement, the star said: "I love the system".

"I love the system", Marks said. "We could never take you guys lightly". You were never out of games.

As finance ministers from the Group of Seven rich democracies gathered Wednesday at a chateau in Chantilly, near Paris, U.S. Britain unveiled legislation last week and Spain's new government is expected to introduce its own version.

"The Nets' two-way players for most of last season were Theo Pinson and Alan Williams", Luke Adams of HoopsRumors explained. "Pinson has since been promoted to a standard contract, while Williams is a free agent, so Brooklyn will have a second two-way slot available even after officially signing Ellenson". Some people thought there was a chance he would stay with the Golden State Warriors but it was pretty obvious that he was going to go to the Brooklyn Nets alongside Kyrie Irving.

Durant is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season as he recovers from the torn Achilles he suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. On top of his 10 all-star nods, the two-time National Basketball Association champion with the Warriors has also been named Finals MVP twice (2017, 18) and league MVP (2014). Of all the players affected by it, nearly all of them suffered a performance decline on the court, and there's a high chance that Kevin Durant will join their ranks.

"I think that's the magic and that's the real special piece where you see elite talent. want to play together and see who's going to sacrifice what and who's going to bring what to the table and just see how they all mesh".
