Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant is ready to move on from the offseason drama that saw him request a trade and reportedly demand that head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks be fired.
After demanding a trade in late June, Durant and the Nets agreed to “move on” together when the right exchange never materialized.
Now, Durant is back in Brooklyn and preparing for the 2022-2023 season, which has become more interesting with the suspension of Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka., along with injuries to his front court.

“Can we get over that at some point?” Durant asked after Friday practice, according to ESPN. “I know it’s an interesting story. I know it took most of the offseason, and drama sells, I get it, but I didn’t miss a game, I didn’t miss a practice, I’m still here. So hopefully we can get through it’s”.
“I was upset,” Durant added. “And as a family, they understood that I was upset, some of the things that they agreed with. So we talked about it, and it was for a couple of months, a couple of weeks, towards the end of that where we talked. We went out and expressed all of our concerns about how we can all be better. And it just worked from there, and I’m glad I’m here now.”

On Tuesday, Nash spoke to reporters about the drama’s offseason and questioned whether Durant really demanded that he be fired.
“You know, I never thought I was 100 percent,” Nash said. “It’s not like that in black and white. There are a lot of factors, a lot of things behind the scenes, a lot of things reported that are not accurate. A lot of things that are reported that are not 100 percent accurate.”
