Kevin Durant addressed the rumors that he tried to recruit his good friend and Houston Rockets superstar James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.

Durant denied the reports and said he has not spent any time dealing with that situation.

“I don’t know where you’re making these stories up that me and James talked about any of this at a workout. Like, I don’t know where that came from. James is a friend of mine, but I let the front office handle all of that stuff. I was just so focused on working out.

I heard all the noise. I heard that James potentially wanted to come to the Nets. Anybody can make up stories. Anybody can write a story and it gets some traction.

So, nothing’s ever set in stone ’til it’s set in stone. So, I never thought too much about it. I just focused on myself and my teammates probably did the same thing and, you know, move forward,” Durant told reporters, via Nets Wire.

Harden has expressed his willingness to leave the Rockets and reunite with Durant in the Nets.
