Kevin Durant Has Big Problem With Phoenix Suns and Team’s Offense

Kevin Durant has a problem with the Phoenix Suns and it relates to the team’s disfunctional offense.

According to a new report from Shams Charania and Doug Haller of The Athletic, Durant “never felt comfortable” with his role in Frank Vogel’s offense.

The two-time champ is reportedly of the opinion that not enough plays were drawn up for him and that he was “relegated to the corner far too often”.

Durant still managed 26.8 points per game on 55.2 percent field goal shooting, but the Suns’ star trio of Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal was never anywhere near as lethal on offense as the team had hoped.

In fact, the Suns were minus-51 when Booker, Durant and Beal shared the floor in their first-round series against the Timberwolves. That’s the worst plus-minus for any trio of the postseason so far.

Much of the blame will fall on the head coach, and Charania and Haller’s report mentions that Vogel had started to lose the locker room.

One player even told The Athletic he had to stop himself from laughing when Vogel started shouting at the team in such an excessive manner that many of the players felt his tirade was forced and out of character.

Some tough decisions loom for the Suns’ front office this summer, with the team currently committed to paying Durant, Booker and Beal just under $150 million combined next season.

That’s more than 15 teams have committed for their entire rosters in 2024-25.
