Two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is set to become a free agent this Summer – something you’ve surely already heard – and there’s a growing sense of belief that this will be his last season with the Golden State Warriors.
And as Durant’s departure looms, more and more reports suggest that his next destination will be New York, as a member of the New York Knicks. The latest inkling of information regarding KD’s future plans comes from his peers.
The Athletic recently polled a quarter of the NBA’s active roster on a number of topics, including who should be crowned NBA MVP, overrated/underrated players, and where Durant will be playing in the 2019-20 season.
According to The Athletic, more than 63% of the 127 players polled believe Durant will indeed be signing with the Knicks.
Just last week, Ric Bucher described KD to NY as “a done deal.”
During his appearance on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd,” Bucher relayed the following:
“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.”
