Kevin Durant to Enter Free Agency; Join Forces with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn?

Kevin Durant officially declined his player option with Golden State & will become a Free Agent on June 30th.


Let the Kevin Durant bidding begin.

Durant has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Golden State Warriors, according to’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the report, Durant is “evaluating free agency options” and that the “process has stayed private.”

His likely destinations are a return to Golden State with the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and of course Brooklyn Nets also in the mix. Brooklyn of course is the assumed future destination of Celtics guard Kyrie Irving who has reportedly been trying to recruit Durant to join him there.

Whoever does sign Durant will have to probably go the whole season without having him play. The 10-time All-Star suffered an Achilles injury during Game 5 of the NBA Finals that will likely sideline him for the entirety of the upcoming season.
