cording to Adrian Wojnarowski Durant is New Tork with his manager pondering what his next decision should be.
Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has declined his $31.5 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources told ESPN.
Durant’s business manager, Rich Kleiman, informed Warriors general manager Bob Myers of the decision in recent days.
Durant and Kleiman are together in New York, where they’ve been mulling his free-agency options. So far, it’s been a fairly clandestine process.
Durant is still considering a number of scenarios in free agency, including a return to Golden State, league sources tell ESPN. The New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and LA Clippers are also believed to be considerations, sources said.
Knicks fans were pretty excited to hear that KD was in New York.
Unfortunately for those fans it doesn’t seem like Knicks owner James Dolan is too interested in signing an injured to Durant to a max contract according to ESPN’s Stephen A Smith.
As of now the Brooklyn Nets are still favorites to sign KD this offseason.
