KD's Bricktown restaurant 'going through transition'

Management for Kevin Durant's Bricktown restaurant KD's said the eatery is "going through a transition."

Durant partnered with Norman-based Hal Smith Restaurant Group to open KD's restaurant in 2013, which features a "Baller Menu" featuring Bluepoint oysters and rib-eye steak. The restaurant also features a wall of Durant memorabilia. 

Hal Smith Restaurant Group said it would issue a statement on the future of KD's shortly.   

The Bricktown KD's location, at 224 Johnny Bench, cost $5 million to build. Durant owns a 25 percent stake in the restaurant.  

The restaurant deleted its Twitter account on the same day Durant announced a move to the Golden State Warriors July 4. An ill-time tweet promoting KD's special on barbecue chicken that day provoked an angry response from fans. 

Here's footage from KD's opening back in December 2013:
