Below is our previous story on the announcement.
Kevin Durant has already made his free agency decision and will make the announcement on Sunday night, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. What’s also pretty interesting is the means he will use for the announcement.
Durant’s announcement will come on the Instagram page for “The Boardroom,” which is the name of Durant’s sports business TV show on ESPN+.
The show is a six-episode series produced by Thirty Five Media, which is the creative arm of Durant and his agent Rich Kleiman. In addition to the show on ESPN+, Thirty Five Media has projects at YouTube, Apple, and Fox Sports Films.
Woj’s tweet about the announcement coming on “The Boardroom” led the Instagram account to more than double its following within an hour.
Durant was reportedly planning to communicate with four teams in free agency: the Warriors, Knicks, Nets and Clippers. His decision is probably coming down to a return to the Warriors on a five-year, $221 million max offer, the Knicks, the team he long was rumored to be joining, and a partnership with Kyrie Irving on the Nets.
