Kevin Durant saw his season end abruptly as the Phoenix Suns suffered a four-game sweep by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite playing 75 regular-season games, the most since 2018-19, Durant’s efforts couldn’t match previous championship success. Despite the setback, Suns GM James Jones is committed to maximizing Durant’s talents, aiming to elevate the team’s performance.

“I tell you, that’s a constant focus for us to continue to figure out how to maximize Kevin Durant,” Jones said when asked if the team had successfully maximized Durant’s talent during the 23-24 campaign.

“No one has done it yet. I believe we will be the first team to do it because if we can maximize him, we can maximize our entire roster. We’re a better team, but that’s not an issue. I think Kevin had a phenomenal season this year offensively. We’re a better team, but that’s not an issue. I think Kevin had a phenomenal season this year offensively.”

Jones added that with the time constraints, everyone was striving to synchronize and align their efforts, implying it wasn’t an easy task for the Suns.

“I think he had some of the best stretches of his career this year. So, it wasn’t an offensive thing. It wasn’t a utilization or usage thing. It was just the totality of figuring out when and where and how to do it together. We just could not get on the same page. We ran out of time.”
