Kevin Durant opting out as free agency sweepstakes begin

Четверг, 27 Июн, 2019

Kevin Durant reportedly declined his $31.5 million player option with the Golden State Warriors and will become a free agent when the period begins Sunday.

If Durant were to re-sign with the Warriors, he could ink a five-year, $221 million deal.

In the midst of promoting his new book - Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala visited Chalamagne Tha God and the Breakfast Club and explained how he believes the coach was blackballed from the league for his religious views and opinions on homosexuality.

Since joining the Warriors in the summer of 2016, Durant has been mostly healthy.

The Los Angeles Lakers made waves in the National Basketball Association community two weeks ago when they chose to trade for Anthony Davis.

"Their ability to be able to talk through whatever potential issues there are in trying to go forward, I think those lines of communication are open".

Durant's business manager, Rich Kleiman, informed Warriors general manager Bob Myers of the decision in recent days.

It looks like the Los Angeles Lakers have a familiar name atop their free agency wish list.

During his breakout season with the Nets, Russell averaged 21 points, seven assists, and four rebounds on 43 percent shooting from the field and 37 percent from 3-point range en route to his first all-star appearance as well. "Noone's ever calling Kevin Durant a cupcake again. There was players that got paid because of him that shouldn't have gotten paid". We don't know that yet. Butler hasn't garnered the best reputation as a teammate, either, so him and Irving on the same team could make for some spectacular trainwreck TV.
