Kevin Durant to switch to No. 7 from No. 35 with Nets

"His tremendous abilities and dedication to his craft have made him as talented an offensive player our game has ever seen and we, as well as all of Brooklyn, are thrilled to welcome Kevin and his family to the Nets".

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson commented: "the entire coaching staff is excited to have the opportunity to coach a player of Kyrie's caliber".

When he returns, he will wear the No. 7 after previously playing with 35 throughout his career.

The two-time Finals MVP today announced on social media that he would be rocking the no. 7 for the Brooklyn Nets after wearing no. 35 for his entire National Basketball Association career to date.

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.

"35 was chosen in honour of someone very near and dear to me".

"We're thankful to Kevin for the incredible things he did for our team and franchise during his three years with the Warriors", Golden State general manager Bob Myers said. He has led the National Basketball Association in scoring four times, and his current 27 points-per-game average ranks sixth all time.

Russell, 23, owns career averages of 16.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.16 steals and 28.5 minutes in 272 games (224 starts) over four seasons with Brooklyn and the Los Angeles Lakers. "We wish him the best moving forward", he said. He missed most of this past season's playoffs, first with a calf injury and then the Achilles rupture during the NBA Finals - a series Golden State lost to Toronto in six games.
