Although Kevin Durant and the Warriors have clinched the Western Conference, there has been and will continue to be rumors that suggests KD will be soon taking his talents elsewhere during the offseason.
“I have nothing to do with the Knicks. I don’t know who traded Porzingis,” Durant stated back in February. That got nothing to do with me. I’m trying to play basketball,” KD said. “And now when I don’t want to talk to y’all its a problem with me? Come on, man. Grow up.”
However, according to Frank Isola of the Athletic, not onyl will KD leave in free agency, but he’ll be pairing up with a Championship point guard.
“Some executives and agents in NBA circles remain convinced that Durant and Irving will team up on the Knicks when both become free agents this offseason. It is believed that Durant will not sign with New York unless another star player joins him there, and Irving is seen as the most likely.
One agent believes that the two players are debating who will be the first to sign with the Knicks. That would enable them to be seen as the leader, while the second player to sign would be considered a follower.”
One things for sure is that both players will be annoyed by these reports, but the best way to make rumors go away is to state you won’t be leaving your current franchise in free agency. It’s as simple as that.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
