Report: Knicks would not offer Kevin Durant max contract

James Dolan

The New York Knicks were not prepared to offer Kevin Durant a full max contract offer, according to one report.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Sunday that the Knicks were not going to offer Durant a full max contract over his injury.

The big question here is whether the Knicks decided they weren’t going to offer Durant the full max and that’s why he chose Brooklyn, or whether the Knicks were turned down and are trying to convince everyone “we didn’t want him anyway.”

This seems like the type of line a team that is getting clowned for striking out in free agency would try to say to save face. When you’re the Knicks and you traded away Kristaps Porzingis and your last real frenzy was “Linsanity,” you take Durant Achilles injury or not, no hesitation.
