Sean Marks revealed in a radio interview that the Brooklyn Nets' system factored into Kevin Durant's decision to sign with the team.
"I love the system. I love how you guys play. I see how hard you guys play. ... You were never out of games. We could never take you guys lightly," Marks said Durant told him after he signed.
Marks added that the team would not rush Durant's return from his Achilles injury, and that the decision to come back will ultimately be up to Durant.
"We're certainly not going to rush him back. There's going to be absolutely none of that. We have far too much invested in him, and we owe it to Kevin to get him back to 100 percent. This is entirely going to be a Kevin Durant decision," said Marks.
