Kevin Durant did not play a part in the decision of the Brooklyn Nets to sign Michael Beasley, according to the team’s GM Sean Marks.

“I don’t think it’s fair to call Kevin on every single thing we do…It’s well-documented these two are close but we’re looking at best available and talent. Michael certainly is that,” Marks said, via Brian Lewis of the New York Post.

Durant and Beasley are very close friends off the court.
