Kevin Durant reportedly plans to meet with four teams
Kevin Durant has New York or Los Angeles on his mind if he chooses to leave the Golden State Warriors in free agency.
Durant turned down his $31.5 million option for the upcoming season to explore free agency. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says Durant will engage with four teams about his future — the Clippers, Knicks, Nets and Warriors.
Golden State can offer Durant a five-year, $221 million contract, while the other three teams can offer him four years and $164 million.
Durant underwent surgery in New York to repair a torn Achilles tendon suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals and will engage with teams from New York.
He has long been rumored to be destined for the Knicks, though the chatter about that has quieted recently. Woj says Durant’s decision could extend well into next week.
