Nets reveal first look at Kevin Durant wearing No. 7 jersey

All-NBA forward changed from No. 35 after move to Brooklyn

Kevin Durant might not hit the NBA floor this season, but we’ve now gotten our first look at KD in his No. 7 Brooklyn jersey, courtesy of the Nets’ social media crew.

Durant joined the Nets — along with Kyrie Irving — this July, in a move that shook the balance of power, both across the league and also within New York, where the Knicks have long reigned supreme over the basketball landscape.

Irving, who is expected to lead the team until Durant returns from his Achilles’ tendon rupture, has already made himself a visible presence at workouts in Brooklyn.

The Nets open training camp next week before they play two preseason games against the Los Angeles Lakers in China as part of the NBA China Games (Oct. 10 and Oct. 12).
