Mini-Editorials3 biggest takeaways from the NBA offseason for the Sixers

It has been widely speculated that National Basketball Association superstar Kevin Durant chose to sign with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency because of his desire to be in New York City, the perceived business capital of the world, as well as wanting to play alongside fellow star player Kyrie Irving.

And both came with demands, which has been the narrative for blockbuster trades in the National Basketball Association as of late.

"I'm not going to lie, there's been a couple of times I'm definitely excited about - Kevin for sure, the whole group and really the challenge of getting all these guys together on the same page and watching how it unfolds", Marks told WFAN's Evan Roberts on Tuesday.

Whether it's good for the league or not is not what today's talking point will be. You were never out of games.

The 30-year-old Durant is expected to miss all of next season after tearing his right Achilles tendon playing in the 2019 NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors versus the Toronto Raptors.

I never imagined having to write a speech like this, to the most attractive woman who ever lived. "I lost my rock". I want to wake up from a dream. "She's not in ache and eventually feels regular once more".

"What we knew was we were either getting a teleconference call with Kevin that night or we were potentially going to get a meeting", Marks said.

"I think you certainly have to try and figure out what happened, why did it happen, what can we learn from this?" "And when Kevin posted it on The Boardroom Instagram site, that was news to all of us in the office".

Free agency decisions aren't made in a day or week, but are part of a much longer process, even if players insist they aren't thinking about it during the season. We haven't had that type of talent. "Things are going to change, things are going to adapt, they have to", Marks said. "They have to start driving the culture".

But, he said, "I can assure you Kenny is not going to be anything different than who Kenny is".

However, you can expect the Nets to be a top-four team in the East with Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert, Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen leading the charge.
