Yuta Watanabe is no star. However, the 28-year-old emerged as a fan favorite during his stint with the Brooklyn Nets this past season. This is probably why more than a few Nets fans were sad to see him go in NBA free agency to follow former Brooklyn superstar Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns. It wasn’t a complete shock that Yuta ended up moving on to greener pastures, but it was still a noteworthy departure for the team and for the fans.
