Kevin Durant will wear No. 7 with Nets
A new era for Kevin Durant means a new jersey number.
Durant posted a picture to his Twitter account showing off his new Brooklyn Nets jersey — with a notably new number. After wearing No. 35 throughout his entire career with both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors, he will switch to No. 7 in Brooklyn.

Durant has tied himself to his old number pretty tightly — his off-court business is even named Thirty Five Ventures — so this is a pretty abrupt change. It may simply be his way of moving into a brand new era, especially after the Warriors announced they’d be taking his old No. 35 out of circulation. That chapter is over now that he’s committed to Brooklyn for the long haul.
