It seems like it has been ages since Kevin Durant actually played basketball, but his debut in a Phoenix Suns uniform is upon us.
He’ll take the floor against the now-depleted Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday in Charlotte, marking his first game in well over a month.
What began with a loud but unfulfilled trade request translated to a quiet yet obvious trade, consummated three weeks ago when Durant’s tumultuous Brooklyn Nets tenure ended. He walked away with plenty of what-ifs and walked into more of the same in Phoenix, albeit under different circumstances.
Durant will join Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton in what could be a last-ditch opportunity to win a championship after the Suns’ playoff run ended in disappointment in the second round last May.
