It was a long, dramatic summer for NBA megastar Kevin Durant after he requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets and set a few ultimatums before eventually agreeing to return to the team. It was the story of the offseason, but now that he’s finally able to clear the air to the media, Durant isn’t interested in talking about it.
During the Nets’ media day on Friday, Durant was asked to clarify some of the inaccuracies in the reporting over the summer. Instead, Durant declined to talk about it asking reporters to “move past” the story.
"There's a lot of sh** that was inaccurate but it's like I don't want to go through it right now. We don't got that much time right now."

“Can we move on past that at some point?” Durant said according to NBA reporter Nick Friedell of ESPN. “I know it’s an interesting story. I know that it took up most of the offseason and drama sells, I get that, but I didn’t miss any games, I didn’t miss any practices, I’m still here.”
Still, Durant wasn’t completely silent on the offseason drama, saying that “a lot of sh**” that was reported over the summer was “inaccurate.”
“There’s a lot of sh** that was inaccurate but it’s like I don’t want to go through it right now,” Durant said. “We don’t got that much time right now.”
Perhaps one day Durant will clear the air. But today is not that day.
