The looming free agency of Kevin Durant has been the topic of conversation for months. The likelihood of his departure has been all but confirmed at this point, and the Knicks seem destined to get ahold of the 2x Finals MVP.
But anything can change between now and July 1st, and Durant’s agent, Rich Kleiman, isn’t convinced the superstar has any idea as to where he is going, despite the rumors.
Kevin Durant is “100 percent undecided” on where he’s playing next, his manager @RichKleiman says at The #WSJFuture Of Everything Festival. “He really doesn’t know, and I really don’t know.” pic.twitter.com/1fEw2kYZqm

A supposed “secret meeting” between the Knicks and Durant happened early in the year — but this news by Kleiman implies that meeting never took place. Rather then Duran’s free agency being little more than an announcement, perhaps Durant will sit down with multiple franchises in an attempt to be swayed a certain way.
Thus, it would mean this is far from a one-horse race. The Knicks, Clippers, Lakers, Nets, and any other team who garners interest by the star will have the chance to win over the heart of Kevin Durant before it’s all said and done.
