Sean Marks said that he doesn't know whether Kevin Durant will play this season if games eventually resume, and that the Brooklyn Nets were never going to push Durant for an early return.

"He knows his body better than anybody. Our performance team and training staff have done a tremendous job getting him to this point, but I just don't know how coming out of this pandemic will affect anybody, let alone Kevin. When you've got enough invested in a player like Kevin, we're never going to push him to come back. When the timing is right, he'll be 100 percent when he gets on the court.    

"I can tell you this though - before the pandemic, he looked like Kevin Durant and that's a good thing," said Marks in an interview with Newshub.

Marks also addressed the current suspension in play, saying that it presented the league with an opportunity to improve itself.

"It's a heck of an opportunity. We're going to take advice from a lot of people, and we'd be doing ourselves and the industry a huge disservice, if we just came back expecting things to be the same."
