• Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns are targeting next Wednesday’s game in Charlotte for his Phoenix debut and return to NBA action.

Durant is working his way back after an MCL sprain suffered on Jan. 8 while in action for the Brooklyn Nets. 

Brooklyn traded The former NBA MVP and 13-time All-Star to Phoenix on Feb. 9 in a blockbuster trade that sent shockwaves around the league. Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder and four unprotected future first-round picks were sent to the Nets in return for his services. Durant is averaging 29.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and also 5.3 assists per contest in 39 games this season.

It will be intriguing to see just how Kevin Durant fits with the Suns when he does make his debut. He is a two-way player who can score off the dribble as well SS offer a catch-and-shoot option. Durant is one of the most talented basketball players in the history of the sport, but he will view his four years in Brooklyn as a failure. 

The situation with James Harden was over before it even started, and Kyrie Irving had problems off the court that hampered the chemistry and organization of the team. The three stars only started 16 games together, and ultimately the project has come to an underwhelming end.
