"We realized that we wanted to go in another direction and we felt that the trade we did with the Seattle SuperSonics organization gave us that opportunity to get a very unique and gifted athlete at the SF position and when you look back in recent history we noticed that having a dominant wing player to build around would likely give us the best chance to bring championships to the city of Orlando for years to come. We are very excited to have Kevin Durant in our organization."
