Reporters are convinced that Durant will be a Knick next season.
As the NBA season comes to a close, reporters and pundits are all trying to figure out where certain free agents will want to go in the offseason. Probably the biggest free agent this Summer is Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant. Durant signed a three-year deal with the Warriors back in 2016 and has won two NBA titles in his first two seasons. Despite the success, many believe Durant is on his way out and the top team on his list is the New York Knicks.
Bleacher Report writer Ric Bucher made his way to Colin Cowherd's The Herd and claimed that Durant going to New York is a "done deal." He even said that Durant was never fully embraced in Golden State and that's why he's leaving.
"It's not a matter of not liking or appreciating what he has," Bucher said. "But being there, I can tell you that Kevin Durant has never been fully embraced by the Warriors faithful. And has never, from even a national perspective, been given the just do that you would expect for a guy who has been the NBA Finals MVP of their last two championships. It's still Steph's team. It's still Steph, Klay, Draymond. KD thanks for coming along and helping us win these last two. He's never gotten the just deserts."
Durant and the Warriors will most likely be entering the postseason as the number one team in the Western Conference and are favored to win another championship. If he chooses to join the Knicks, Durant would be going to a team that might finish last this year.
