"I felt like it was time for a change and I wanted to play for a new team," Durant said. "And simply put, I just did it. I didn't really think about what I was leaving behind or like what we accomplished. I put that up on the shelf already. And when it was time to make a decision on my future, I just thought solely about me."
The Nets expect Durant to miss the season, though Durant said he makes his own decisions.
