NEW YORK (AP) - Kevin Durant hasn’t always seen eye to eye with the media. Now, he’ll be a part of it.

The Players’ Tribune announced Thursday the Oklahoma City Thunder star will join the company as deputy publisher.

Durant will work closely with founding publisher and former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who started the website for athletes to tell their own stories earlier this year.

Jeter said he sought Durant because he has an important voice off the court. Durant said he looks forward to building a place where “athletes can have our say and feel safe that nothing will be distorted.”

Editorial content from Durant is expected in the next few weeks.
