Durant followed up the image of his fresh Nets jersey with another post via his company Thirty Five Ventures, detailing his decision to change from the number 35 which was "chosen to honor someone very near and dear" to him.
"35 took me and my family from Seat Pleasant, MD and showed us the world," Durant wrote. "But as I start this next chapter in my basketball life, the number I'll be wearing on my back is the number 7 next time you see me on the floor. One time Brooklyn."

What will the no. 7 bring?
